Disclaimer: I don’t think Live+7 numbers matter one way or the other in terms of Chuck’s fate, but some of the numbers might be interesting for those obsessed with Chuck’s ratings.
Chuck had a Live+SD rating with adults 18-49 of 2.0 for its premiere on September 20, and a full week’s worth of DVR viewing pushed it up to a 2.6. On a Live+SD basis it was ranked #57 for the week among ABC, CBS, CW, Fox and NBC. With Live+7 it jumped to 55th.
The interesting thing (though not really surprising for an 8pm scripted show) was that almost half of Chuck’s adults 18-49 DVR lift came from same day (before 3am Tuesday morning) DVR viewing. Chuck had a Live 18-49 rating of 1.5 (please note, nobody reports live viewing anymore and we only see the live numbers in the context of Live+7 DVR lift).
In total viewers Chuck jumped from 5.812 million Live+SD to 7.045 million Live+7.
