For the week of Oct 29-Nov 4, FX's nip / tuck is at the top of the cable timeshifting list with an increase of 19.3% over its Live audience in its Live+7 viewing audience. It also had the largest number of timeshifted viewers (791,000) of any cable show.
USA's Law and Order: CI was also a cable timeshifting standout, both for a 14.6% increase over is Live audience and the total timeshifted audience of 507,000.
Where is MTV's The Hills? While it was #17 in Live+7 viewing, it did not appear in the top 40 cable shows for Live viewing (so we have no data). Blame a Spongebob avalanche. There were seventeen Spongebob episodes in the top 40 cable Live shows.
