The average viewership increase From DVR Viewing ranks which of the top broadcast shows [by Live+7 viewers] had the largest absolute increase in average viewership by DVR between the Live + Same Day and Live + 7 day ratings measurements.

Do the Live+7 ratings tell us anything about a show's renewal prospects we didn't already know from the Live+Same Day ratings?  No.  Click here to learn more.

To see the previous most DVR'd TV Shows lists click here.

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) ratings 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

Until the 2009-2010 season, we used a 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.

  • Alley Car

    REVENGE!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sarah

    Yay for Bones, especially all things considered, but is it usually higher than that? Just curious.

  • Bright

    Hi @Amanda, @Bill and @Robert, I wrote it last week but I think I did it too late to I’m gonna post it again, just in case. hope you don’t mind. I’s a suggestion.

    The thing is, why don’t you change the “Post Airdate %” for the number the post airdate represents in the absolute viewership?

    Example:

    Modern Family – 05/16, ABC: (L+SD)3.9 (L+7)6.2 (post airdate)2.3, so 27% of the total viewership is post airdate, instead of the the 59% you used to say. The 59% is very confusing.

    I just think it would be a more clear and interesting information (because I always have to calculate it myself by my own, the 59% is useless in my opinion), but of course the ones that know that better is you, I just wanted to put my two cents. Thanks!

  • Bright

    I don’t think I made mayself clear, it’s kind of hard to explain and translate the thought from another language, but, there it is, just in case. Anyway, sorry I didn’t include @Sara, my mistake

  • halloween

    no one watches Gossip Girl, even on dvr…why was this renewed again?

  • Beth

    @Sara

    This is my first year really keeping up with the ratings so I apologize if this is a stupid question, but you guys do live+7 ratings for the summer shows (i.e. Rookie Blue) or is there just not enough of them?

  • atlanta

    Interesting info, thanks for posting.

  • SalaciousCrumb

    SNF was still the #1 show with 8.0 even with 0% dvr playback….thats funny.

  • atlanta

    Sarah: yes, yay for Bones with only 13 episodes, numerous extended hiatuses and moving to the Monday death slot, it did very well indeed.

  • Nick

    @Beth

    I’m not a TVBTN employee, but I can tell you that Nielsen doesn’t give out this information, at least to this site’s source. Even if they did, I doubt Bill/Robert would post it, probably for the same reason there’s no summer Renew Cancel Index. It’s because there’s not enough interest. Currently, there’s a grand total of two summer scripted series on broadcast (Saving Hope and Rookie Blue). That’s nowhere near enough interest to qualify for more than L+SD ratings.

    By the way, I’ve never seen Sara or Amanda comment ever.

  • rob60990

    DVR really helps ABC. Modern Family was tied with BBT and 2.5 Men yet DVR helped the show pull ahead of both. NCIS beat Grey’s with just new episodes only but DVR helped Grey’s pull ahead.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Bill Gorman

    @Nick, Beth, the nice folks who send us the Live+7 Day ratings during the broadcast season get them all year round, but like many organizations they scale back what they send out during the summer.

  • Sarah

    @atlanta

    Hopefully, next season, despite being back in the Monday death slot, it will do even better since it will be back to its normal schedule and have a full season+ (I hope).

  • Sami

    Go Revenge!

  • SarahL

    Yay, Grimm! Kicking DVR butt and taking names. NBC knew what it was doing by renewing it very early. Now we need to get these people to watch live.

    I am glad to see Scandal on the list. I just watched it and really enjoyed it a lot.

  • Beth

    @Bill

    Okay, thanks. :)

  • Beth

    @Nick

    Okay, thanks.

  • SteveO

    Glee doesn’t look that bad at all when you look at these! Hopefully more people watch live next year!

  • George

    Hart of Dixie doing great in DVR!

  • ron

    New shows like Revenge, Once upon a time and New girl at the top 12 means they are doing it great so glaad for tthe 3 of them
