“Yellowstone” kicked off its second season with some big gains in the cable live +7 ratings for the week of June 17.

The season 2 premiere of the Kevin Costner-led drama scored the week’s largest total viewer gain, growing by 3.34 million viewers (+138%) across seven days of delayed viewing. “Yellowstone” tied with MTV’s “Teen Mom” for the week’s second-largest demo gain as well, as both shows grew by 0.6 points in the adults 18-49 demo.

E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” posted the week’s no. 1 demo gain, rising from its initial 0.6 L+SD rating to a 1.3 (+0.7, +117%). Meanwhile, USA’s “Queen of the South” came second in the total viewers measure, after drawing in an additional 1.24 million (+144%), which still put it considerably lower than “Yellowstone’s” 3.34 million viewer gain.

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for June 17-23, 2019. Rankings include original programs only, not repeats.
