Meanwhile, “Criminal Minds” also enjoyed strong growth among total viewers. The show added 3.65 million viewers through seven-day playback, No. 1 for the week. That gave “Minds” an L+7 total of 10.25 million.
Four other shows during the week each added at least 3.0 million viewers through DVR playback. Fellow CBS drama “Scorpion” was among them, as were NBC’s “Chicago P.D.,” “Shades of Blue” and “Chicago Med.”
