With “The Walking Dead” over, it ended up being several unscripted shows that posted the biggest gains in the cable live +7 ratings for the week of April 1.

After seven days of delayed viewing, MTV’s “Teen Mom 2” grew more than any of the week’s other cable shows in the adults 18-49 demo, climbing up from its initial 0.5 L+SD rating to a 1.3 (+0.8, +160%). Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” came second with a 0.7 point gain (140%).

In addition, it was the History Channel’s “Curse of Oak Island” that took the week’s top spot in viewer gains, growing from 3.34 million viewers to 4.72 million (+1.38 million, +41%).

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for April 1-7, 2019. Rankings include original programs only, not repeats.
