FX (and FXX) absolutely dominated the cable ratings with seven-days of delayed viewing for the week of Sept. 10.

The season premiere of “American Horror Story: Apocalypse” had the biggest total gains of any cable show in both the adults 18-49 (+1.5, +100%) and total viewers (+3.17 million, +102%) measures throughout the week. The network secured the no. 2 spot in both measures as well with the second episode of its “Sons of Anarchy” spin-off, “Mayans M.C.” (+1.1, +2.62 million).

In case those wins weren’t enough, FXX’s “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” also had the biggest percentage gains in the 18-49 demo (+0.5, +250%) and in total viewers (+727,000 +185%). Elsewhere, the series finale of USA’s “Shooter” grew 0.2 points (+100%) and 821,000 viewers (+104%) with delayed viewing.

Here are the top cable shows in the Live +7 rankings for Sept. 10-16, 2018. Rankings include original programs only, not repeats.
