(click on chart for full-sized image)

Among shows in the Top 100 audience size for Live+7.

Again, Big Brother is the most timeshifted show, by a wide margin, and reality TV dominates.

Note from Seidman: While I love the visual representations of Mr. Gorman's charts, I must get comfortable with the inevitable "biggest balls" comparisons that will ensue! You'll notice that the biggest ball on the chart is the purple NBC on Tuesday. It's low on the chart but is huge. That's because NBC's America's Got Talent had more total viewers (14.3m)than any show on this chart but only 6.4% (857K) were time-shifted.

The Sunday installment of Big Brother had 7.7m viewers, but a whopping 1.4m (22.9%)of them were time-shifted.
