FX continued to have a strong presence in the cable live +7 ratings for the week of Oct. 8.

“American Horror Story: Apocalypse” had the week’s second largest gains in the adults 18-49 (+1.4, +140%) and total viewers (+2.82 million, +133%) measures, while “Mayans M.C.” came third in both (+0.9, +2.12 million) as well. FXX’s “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” also landed in the charts with a gain of 0.4 points (+200%) and 532,000 viewers (+154%) across seven days.

It was AMC’s “The Walking Dead” that took the week’s no. 1 spots in total gains though, after growing the same 1.5 points (+75%) that its premiere did the week before, and raking in an additional 3.42 million viewers (+69%) with delayed viewing.
