With several of the usual big DVR players taking Thanksgiving week off, some other shows rose in the Live +7 rankings.

“This Is Us” grew its audience the most with a week of DVR and on-demand viewing, adding 2.1 points in adults 18-49 and 5.46 million viewers to its same-day total. “Chicago Fire” (+1.1) was the only other show to grow by more than 1.0.

“New Girl” (0.8 to 1.6 in 18-49) and “Quantico” (0.7 to 1.4) led the percentage gains, each doubling their initial numbers. “Quantico” very nearly doubled its viewer count as well, rising by 99.7 percent (rounded up to 100 in the chart below).

Some of the shows that usually are at or near the top of the Live +7 charts, including “The Big Bang Theory,” “Empire,” “Modern Family” and “Designated Survivor,” were off during the holiday week.

Here are the Live +7 rankings for Nov. 21-27, 2016. The rankings include first-run series and specials only, not repeats.
