This table ranks the broadcast network shows most viewed via DVR over the course of the week. Please note these DVR tables are the only place at all where "live" viewing is reported and that almost all of our daily and weekly reports are based on live plus same day (the show aired) DVR viewing. We use the live number only to arrive at total DVR viewing, and some of that viewing is baked in to our normal live plus same day DVR usage reported. I've also listed the % of DVR viewing that happens on the same day the shows aired.

LIVE = live viewing
LIVE+7= live plus seven day DVR viewing
LIVE+SD = live plus DVR viewing occurring the same night the show aired
%increase = the percentage of audience increase above live viewing
%SD = the percentage of total DVR viewing that occurred the same night the show aired
