“Designated Survivor” has been one of the biggest beneficiaries of DVR and on-demand viewing all season. The week of Nov. 7-13 was no different.

The show’s Nov. 9 episode had the second-biggest total gain in adults 18-49 in the Live +7 ratings for the week, growing by 1.8 points (1.2 to 3.0). Only “The Big Bang Theory” (3.4 to 5.4, +2.0) got a bigger boost.

“Designated Survivor” also was far and away the leader in viewers added, as it grew by 6.36 million people. It was also the percentage-gain leader in both categories and the only show to double both its 18-49 rating and its total audience.

Here are the Live +7 rankings for Nov. 7-13, 2016. The rankings include first-run series and specials only, not repeats.
