South Park Largest Timeshifted Audience, Highest % Increase
For the week of Nov 5-11, the bad boys of Comedy Central's South Park are at the top of the cable timeshifting heap with an increase of 25.6% over their Live audience in their Live+7 viewing audience. They also had the largest number of timeshifted viewers (918,000) of any cable show.
Disney's 11/10 Hannah Montana was also a cable timeshifting standout, both for a 16.7% increase over is Live audience and the total timeshifted audience of 818,000.
Where are FX's nip / tuck, MTV's The Hills, and VH1's I Love New York 2? While they all placed in the Top 40 for Live+7 viewing, none appeared in the top 40 cable shows for Live viewing (so we have no baseline Live data). Blame Spongebob Nation. There were sixteen Spongebob episodes in the top 40 cable Live shows for the week. All hail Squarepants!
