Without “Descendants 3” on to steal its thunder, “Yellowstone” resumed its usual dominance over the cable live +7 ratings for the week of August 5.

The Paramount Network series topped the week’s delayed viewing gains in both the adults 18-49 and total viewer measures, growing by 0.9 points (+180%) and by 3.78 million viewers (+163%). “Yellowstone” scored some of the week’s largest percentage gains too, as it nearly tripled its initial L+SD rating and audience.

MTV’s “Teen Mom” and the season premiere of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Orange County” tied for the week’s second-biggest demo gain, as both unscripted shows grew by 0.6 points. “Below Deck Mediterranean,” meanwhile, scored second place in total viewer gains, with an uptick of 1.18 million (+71%).

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for August 5-11, 2019. Rankings include original programs only, not repeats.
