O'Reilly Interview of Clinton Puts 2 Shows In Top 10
For the week of April 28 - May 4, 2008, MTVs The Hills was back as the top cable time-shifted show with an increase of 27.6% over its Live audience in its Live+7 viewing audience and an absolute time-shifted audience size of 974,000. Nickelodeon's Chasing Zoey movie was second with a 10.3% increase and 500,000 time-shifted viewers.
The two night interview of Hillary Clinton on The O'Reilly Factor put both shows in our top 10 at # 6 and #7. Increases like that from DVR viewing of 7%+ are very rare for any news program.

Our time-shifting chart ranks which of the Top 40 cable 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). We include both the absolute size of the time-shifted audience (and sort the chart by that metric), and the % increase over the Live viewing.
