Once again, it was “Teen Mom 2” that led with one of the biggest adults 18-49 gains of any cable show for the week of July 16-22.

The MTV reality series doubled its 0.6 rating after a week of delayed viewing, ticking up to a 1.2. It was the highest-rated of any of the cable shows, and also grew 86% in total viewers, rising from 1.22 million to 2.26 million in the L+7 numbers.

The Paramount Network’s “Yellowstone” continued to score the biggest gains in viewers, compared to its other cable competitors, scoring an additional 2.75 million viewers, and bringing its seven-day delayed viewing audience to a total of 4.64 million. The season 2 premiere of FX’s “Snowfall” also performed well with delayed viewing, up 108% from its L+SD audience (+1.26 million) and climbing 0.5 points in adults 18-49 to a 1.0 (+100%).
