For the week of May 26 - June 1, ABC's Lost was the top broadcast prime-time show for audience % gain by time-shifting (DVR viewing). Its audience increased by 32.2% over the 10.587 million that watched it Live giving it a Live+7 audience of 13.991 million.
Fox's Hell's Kitchen was second with an increase of 20.5%. Rounding out the top 10 were two episodes of So You Think You Can Dance?, The Bachelorette, Men in Trees, Last Comic Standing, Moment of Truth, Reaper and American Gladiators.
A few notable appearances including MyNetworkTV's Under One Roof, which I believe is our first MyNet show in the % time-shifting list, and 12 Corazones which I believe is the first Telemundo show to make our top 20 list as well.
In total, Fox leads the network totals with 7 of the top 20 time-shifted shows on a % basis. Unlike recent weeks, the CW placed only 3 shows in the top 20.
