Update: perhaps since it was marked "Special" because it aired at 8pm rather than 9pm, the Live+7 data for Dollhouse was not included in the data we received (so Dollhouse isn't included anywhere below!).  I'll see if  I can track the data down.

Update 2: I got some data on Dollhouse's finale, but it's all rounded to one decimal place so I can't really compare it to the other data here in terms of percentage gains.   But it went from 2.2 million L+SD to 2.6 million L+7 and 18-49 went from a .9 to a 1.1.

American Idol was (by far and away) still the most watched show when a week's worth of DVR viewing was factored in for the week ending January 31.

There's a lot of data I'm interested in when it comes to the DVR numbers, but I have tried to keep these tables very simple and ignore most of it.  The first table is just that week's top 25 when sorted by Live+7 viewers.

The second table is the percentage increase to the Live+SD Adults 18-49 rating, and the last table is the shows with the higher percentage increase to overall viewing when comparing Live+7 to Live+SD viewing.

Heroes, Vampire Diaries and Smallville topped both the second and third tables, but take heed; last year Dollhouse always topped those results.  Shows with low viewing to begin with always fare better in those tables, which makes the numbers for Medium and Fringe much more impressive and interesting to me though I'm sure Heroes, Vampire Diaries and Smallville fans will see it differently!
