For the week of June 2-8, 2008, the Wednesday telecast of Fox's So You Think You Can Dance lead all broadcast shows in audience % gain by time-shifting (DVR viewing). Its audience increased by 22.8% over the 8.492 million that watched it Live giving it a Live+7 audience of 10.431 million.

Fox's Hell's Kitchen was second with an increase of 22.3%. Rounding out the top 10 were Tuesday's So You Think You Can Dance, The Mole, Last Comic Standing, Men In Trees, The Bachelorette, Farmer Wants A Wife, Telemundo's Friday Pecados Ajenos, and Fear Itself.

Now it's summertime, the living is easy and TV audiences are down and our lists often have some surprises, but a Telemundo show in the top 10 time-shifted % gainers (and 2 in the top 20) is still noteworthy.

Fox dominated the weeky % gain from time-shifting list with 9 of the top 20 shows.
