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.

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.

    Castle is really popular.

    A lot of people were saying competition brought Revenge down w/live viewers as well as the conference championship fball game. I agreed with the decrease due to golden globes because history has it with ABC that they air originals and usually fall flat especially in the past few years. With this said, Revenge fans stated that dvr #s would be more than impressive since scoring the 1.7 and 2.0 season and series lows..

    However the dvr list has been not as nice to Revenge as it was the first half of the season, or should I say viewers not turning in? Throughout Season 2 Revenge was easily hitting 2.4-2.8 (3.2 for the premiere) easily hitting audiences of 8-10 million viewers w/dvr added it was close to 12 million and demo would gain anywhere from 1.3-1.6 bringing its dvr demo total anywhere from 3.7-4.4 at one point.

    This does not look good. I’m still holding out for Revenge and its comeback when on regular schedule. BUT DVR shows not only did live fail to show up, not anyone who usually watches live, decided to record what they had misses.

    A 2.7 w/dvr included is horrible considering it could easily get that live 2 or 3 months ago. 8 Million Viewers for a Total Audience w/dvr is even more pathetic considering Revenge could score 8 million and more on a weekly basis live not to mention it would gain a couple million viewers w/dvr included..

    So I tend to Diasgree on Revenge and it’s dvr adjustments being impressive it still shows not only that live viewers did turn off the tv but failed to turn off their dvr in which revenge has lost an easy 3 million viewers and over a 1.0-1.4 demo in A18-49.

    I hope Revenge can rebound from this horrible turn of events.. I do blame ABC for horrible scheduling, however you cannot blame ABC for viewers not recording or following up by dvr. I’m in Season one of this show and it is good, I hope that Season 2 is really not this bad?!!?

  • James13

    Wow Nashville almost at 10 million. That has to be good enough for a second season right?

  • david

    Good to see Arrow and Super Natural go so much. Nikita went up to a .6 thats is good to see too. I guess allot of people did not DVR the Carrie Diaries to check it out.

    @Chris23

    DVR has consistently increased Revenge’s viewers by about 2.5-3.5 million viewers , and 1.1-1.3 demo each week. It seems close to the same amount of people have been watching Revenge on their DVRs, the problem is that the “casual” viewers who only watch it live don’t DVR the show when they’re gonna miss it.
    DVR numbers are consistent, but Live numbers have dropped. So if all those lost Live viewers are willing to come back when the show returns it’ll do fine.

    “I’m in Season one of this show and it is good, I hope that Season 2 is really not this bad?!!?”

    No, it’s not. It’s actually pretty good. It is a bit different and the writers have widened the scope of the series, but it’s still great. People are really quick to judge without actually thinking about why the writers are making certain choices for the plot. It’ all makes sense (considering we are only half way into the season)

    The first half of season 2 is the foundation for future stories. It laid out all the ground work and now, all those different plots are merging together and focusing back on Emily again.

    The writers are doing a great job of building up the story, but people just complain that Emily isn’t using her Red sharpie to take out people -_- I loved that aspect of the show as much as anyone else, but they only used the “Revenge of the Week” format 5 times in season 1. ONLY 5! but people act like that’s only thing the show is about and constantly complain about it.

    I would go into greater detail, but since you are still in season 1, I don’t want to reveal any spoilers.

    @Zmax.. Thanks for the heads up. I’m not one to go by others opinions regarding the uprise or downfall of shows I like. I love Revenge and currently on Episode 15 called chaos. I hate to finish watching season one and be so far behind on season 2. I have S1 on Netflix and I doubt Abc has Revenge so far back to the premiere on its website. I heard Abc allowed its website to have all season 2 shows of Scandal, I wonder if they would do the same.

    Alot of shows I have watched in the past fluxuate in terms of better storlines and writing. Unless it is absolutely horrible, I watch a show hoping for the best until it comes to a head.

    For example when I watched Buffy back in the WB/UPN days, I loved it from seasons 1-7. Season 1 was good(but not great) season 2 improved ALOT, Season 3 was just as good IMO, Season 4 I wasn’t sure about the whole college thing and the split up of characters of Angel, Cordelia, and Wesley heading over to Angel for a Spinoff, but everything worked out great! Season 5 was my absolute Favorite! To me once BUFFY moved to UPN it was a good show but nowhere near the greatness of prior seasons, but I am referring to the show itself not other shows, meaning I loved season 6 but fans do have expectations however did I backlash against the show? No. Season 6 was good, the finale was great, the storylines were there, but to me season 5 was the perfect season so none of the other seasons could live up to it. But I still loved season 6 and 7 to complete the series.

    With this said I will be sticking with Revenge. There are always reasons shows will take a temporary, different route. Season 2 is probably like a bridge. It is built for the stories of season 1 and seasons two to create and get to Season 3.

    I Hope the ratings do go up for Revenge I love this show. I haven’t liked a new show this much since LOST premired which Ironically the opening for both shows have similarites lol…

    Very happy!!Castle Up!!Yehhh!!

    @ Chris23
    Chaos! awesome episode. This season has the same concept of showing a flash forward scene in the premiere and building up to the episode later on in the season. There’s some really interesting stuff coming up in season 1 too.

    I’m the same way.
    And I pretty much agree with everything you said about Buffy. I had heard terrible things about season 6 and 7 so I was worried if I should even watch it, but I did and I’m happy that I did. Those season’s weren’t that bad, they were actually pretty good (not perfect, but really good.)

    There is a fine line between not liking a storyline and a storyline actually being poorly written, but people just end up saying a season’s terrible without really thinking about what the storyline adds to the overall narrative of the show.

    Yup, wishing the best for this show.
