The Oct. 26 episode of “Designated Survivor” hit a low in its overnight ratings opposite the World Series, but it made up some of that loss with three days of DVR and on-demand viewing.

The show scored a 1.2 rating in adults 18-49 in the same-day ratings, four tenths below its previous episode. In the Live +3 ratings, it rose to 2.7, within three tenths of the prior episode’s 3.0 after three days. It also added 5.45 million viewers, ahead of the 5.17 million for the prior episode.

The World Series dominates the top of the rankings, owning five of the Top 7 spots in adults 18-49 and five of the Top 8 in viewers. “This Is Us” (+1.6 in 18-49, +4.06 million viewers) and “The Big Bang Theory” (+1.4, +3.97 million) had the next biggest gains.
