Other sites report only which shows had the largest additional audience due to timeshifting. We show both the % audience gained through timeshifting [which we think is more interesting] and the timeshifted audience size.
Our Timeshifting chart indicates which shows had the largest % increase in viewing between Live audience and Live+7 audience numbers from viewers watching shows later on their digital video recorders (DVRs) as well as the size of the audience that watched in the 7 days after the live show aired.
