The debut of “Yellowstone” earned solid delayed-viewing gains in the week of June 18.

The Paramount Network series more than doubled its 18-49 rating after a week, growing from 0.4 to 0.9. The half-point gain tied for the fifth-best on cable for the week.

“Yellowstone” also added 2.48 million viewers, almost double the gain for the second-place show (“Teen Mom II” at 1.25 million).

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for June 18-24, 2018. Rankings include original programs only, not repeats.
