“Empire’s” fall finale was the biggest gainer in both adults 18-49 in Live +3 ratings for the week of Nov. 30-Dec. 6. It grew by 1.7 points in the demo (4.5 to 6.2), beating out the 1.5-point increase (2.4 to 3.9) for “Modern Family.”

“Empire” also added 3.66 million viewers (a 31 percent gain), again beating out “Modern Family” for the top spot. The ABC comedy grew by 3.46 million people.

The percentage leaders were two cult-favorite cable shows: “Star Wars Rebels” and “You’re the Worst” each grew by 200 percent (0.1 to 0.3) to lead the 18-49 rankings. “You’re the Worst” increased its total audience by 158 percent (175,000 to 452,000).

The Top 25 Live +3 gainers (including ties) in adults 18-49 and viewers for Nov. 30-Dec. 6 are below. Unlike the Live +7 ratings, the list includes both broadcast and cable shows and specials, though not repeats.
