“American Horror Story: 1984” stayed on top of the cable live +7 ratings for the week of Oct. 14.

Once again, the FX anthology series posted the largest demo gain of any of the week’s shows, growing by 0.9 points (+180%) in the adults 18-49 demo, nearly tripling its initial L+SD rating. The series also scored the week’s second-largest viewer gain, raking in an additional 1.87 million viewers (+171%) after one week of delayed viewing.

Elsewhere, AMC’s “The Walking Dead” generated the no. 2 demo gain (+0.8, +67%), but topped the week’s total viewer gains (+2.12 million, +61%). The series premiere of USA’s “Treadstone” posted some solid gains as well, and managed to at least double both its initial L+SD rating (+0.2, +100%) and audience (+1.2 million, +185%).
