The fourth week of the broadcast season (October 11-17) saw Grey's Anatomy, Fringe and The Mentalist top our three different rankings for additions between Same Day (until 3am after the airdate) and Live+7 Day DVR viewing.

Grey's Anatomy lead all shows for adults 18-49 ratings added after airdate via DVR viewing, adding 1.5 adults 18-49 ratings points to their Live+Same Day adults 18-49 ratings.

Fringe topped the % adults 18-49 ratings increase from DVR viewing, adding 45% to its Live+Same Day adults 18-49 ratings.

The Mentalist topped the absolute average viewership gained from DVR viewing, adding 3.06 million average viewers via DVR viewing between the Live+Same Day and Live + 7 day measurement periods.

Don't forget that these Live+7 day program ratings mean nothing to the network advertising revenues or the renewal prospects of your favorite shows that we didn't already know from the Live + Same Day ratings we had more than two weeks ago.

Definitions:

DVR (Time-shifted) Adults 18-49 Ratings – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data –LiveLive+Same Day (Live+SD) and Live+7 Day. Time shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+Same Day(Live+SD) include viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3:00AM local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live+7 Day ratings include incremental viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.

DVR Ratings Increase Past Airdate - How many people watched the show on their DVRs within 7 days following the airdate

% of All Adults 18-49 Viewing By DVR Past Airdate - Of the total viewing of that particular episode, what percentage was done via DVR.

Up until the 2009-2010 season, we used the show's Live program rating or viewership as the base upon which the Live+7 day DVR viewing was added. Now, the press seems to be standardizing around using Live+Same Day DVR viewing as the base for the calculations, so that's what we do now as well.
