For the week of June 9-15, the Most DVR'd Broadcast Prime-time top 20 looks a lot like the top % gainers list. In this case, Hell's Kitchen also tops the list with 1.979 million DVR viewers.
The shows on this list that didn't make the top % time-shifted list are not surprisingly mainly CBS shows (because they have larger, older audiences that tend not to DVR as much), Two and A Half Men, NCIS, 48 Hours Mystery, Million Dollar Password and one NBC show Nashville Star.
