    What would be more meaningful is the full list of shows with their audience after adding the weekly DVR.

    The fact that NBC gains the most just shows a possible correlation between DVR viewing and bad shows that nobody watches even though they're hyped.

  • Jack Phillips

    I would also like to see the Live+7 full list of shows and where they stand. Since I only watch a few of them, i.e. Smallville, Supernatural, NCIS, Star Gate: Alatuns, and that's about it.

    So I would like to see how that fill in the whole mix of shows, be it high, middle, or low. But it whould be nice to see.
