Predictably, “The Walking Dead” continued to dominate in the cable live +7 ratings for the week of March 4.

The AMC zombie series posted the week’s biggest gains in both the adults 18-49 demo and in total viewers, growing by 1.0 point (+56%) and by 2.51 million viewers (+52%). Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and MTV’s “Teen Mom II” tied for the week’s second-largest 18-49 gain, after both grew 0.6 points, doubling their initial L+SD ratings.

Meanwhile, Freeform’s “Good Trouble,” Pop’s “Schitt’s Creek,” and SyFy’s “Deadly Class” all grew from their initial 0.1 L+SD ratings to matching 0.3s (+200%), tying for the week’s biggest percentage gain in the demo.

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for March 4-10, 2019. Rankings include original programs only, not repeats.
