TV Ratings: 'Mayans MC' Finale Makes Huge Leap After 3 Days
Here's how big an effect delayed viewing can have on TV shows: The initial airing for the second-season finale of FX's Mayans MC drew a 0.33 rating among adults 18-49 and 950,000 total viewers. Those numbers ranked 171st and 280th among all primetime broadcast and cable shows for the week of Nov. 4.
After three days of delayed viewing, the finale added 0.55 to its 18-49 rating and 1.43 million viewers — and jumped 98 spots in the 18-49 rankings (to 73rd overall) and a whopping 163 spots in viewers (to 117th).
Fellow FX series American Horror Story also made big jumps up the rankings, rising from 91st to 32nd in adults 18-49 (0.49 to 1.18) and from 239th to 112th in viewers (1.05 million to 2.48 million).
Among network shows, ABC's The Rookie climbed 41 spots in adults 18-49 (from 76th to 35th), and NBC's Will & Grace rose 47 places in viewers, going from 113th to 66th.
Below are the 20 broadcast and cable shows with the biggest three-day gains in the week of Nov. 4. NBC's This Is Us posted the largest 18-49 gain (as it's done every week of the season so far), and ABC's The Good Doctor added the most viewers.
