The DVR and on-demand rankings for the week of Oct. 17-23 go something like this:

1. “The Walking Dead” premiere
2. “American Horror Story: Roanoke”
3. Everything else

“The Walking Dead’s” Season 7 debut added to its already huge numbers after a week of delayed viewing, growing by 2.3 points in adults 18-49 (8.4 to 10.7) and 4.5 million viewers. “AHS” added 1.8 points in adults 18-49 and 3.5 million viewers.

There’s a big drop after that. No other show added more than 0.8 to its 18-49 rating or 1.58 million viewers — less than half of either of the Top 2’s totals.

Adults 18-49 – total gain
