Fringe 2009-2010

We don't hate total viewers. We just don't think they matter much in terms of the fates of shows.  But then again, not even the 18-49 increases due to DVR viewing really wind up making much difference,  so since fans are interested in the viewer numbers here they are for the week ending October 18,2009.  The first table is based on most absolute DVR viewing (including Live+SD viewing).  The second table are the shows with the largest percentage increases after the same day.

Again, let me say that despite the recent media hoopla, I don't believe these numbers really make much of a difference in a show's fate. But I don't think those 18-49 numbers make any difference in show fates either, so...

Smallville fans, jump directly to the second table and start skimming.

This first table is sorted by most absolute DVR viewing for the week ending October 18, 2009:
