Hot young girls are no Kryptonite for a young Clark Kent in this all The CW special DVR battle of Gorman favorites. There is really no contest and the young "man of steel" is winning by any metric. But fans of both shows have expressed an interest.
For what it's worth, I tried to get through the Gossip Girl pilot on The CW's web site but every single commercial was the exact same one: a Victoria Secret ad with Tom Brady's girlfriend prancing around in her underwear.

Please note: the numbers for the last two weeks listed above are only comparing LIVE viewing to Live plus SAME DAY DVR viewing and do not represent a huge drop off in DVR viewing but rather the fact that it takes Nielsen much longer to report the Live+7 numbers and we do not have them yet for those two weeks. Roughly 50% of DVR viewing occurs on the same day, so you can probably get pretty close to the final Live+7 numbers by doubling the difference.
