The rookie SyFy series scored the week’s largest percentage gain in the adults 18-49 demo, as it rose from its initial 0.1 L+SD rating to a 0.4 (+300%, +0.3). It was USA’s “Suits” that scored the week’s highest percentage boost in viewers though, with a 176% gain (+1.31 million) after seven days of delayed viewing.

Elsewhere, AMC’s “The Walking Dead” raked in the week’s biggest total gains in both measures, growing by 1.2 points (+71%) in 18-49 and 2.89 million (+61%) in viewers. MTV’s “Teen Mom II” came second in 18-49 with a 0.7 gain (+140%), while the History Channel’s “Curse of Oak Island” scored the week’s second-highest viewer gain, after drawing in an additional 1.49 million (+45%).
