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.

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.

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.

  • Charmed

    Wow Nashville. Good Carrie

  • Rose

    Yay Nashville!

  • Abed

    Can somebody tell me Family guy Live+7 DVR Ratings? I’m really curious :D

  • Sebastian P

    God! First time Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. isn’t on the charts

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Amanda Kondolojy

    @ Abed

    Here you go!

    FAMILY GUY 2.5 3.3 +0.8 +32%

  • shogun

    Shield not making the charts is going to be hard for fans to explain.

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Go H50! Go Elementary!

    Elementary and Grey’s the only shows in the top-10 of all 3 lists….

  • Bee

    omg nashville. ugh, the show does have fans. they’re just not watching live. blahhhhh.

  • tea

    Very good number for Grey’s Anatomy

  • Abed

    @Amanda Kondolojy

    Thanks!

  • Carol_R

    Aren’t these meaningless though since advertisers only pay for DVD viewing up to 3 days after the episode is originally aired?

  • Serene

    You mean its gonna be hard to explain that Shield didn’t make the list since it was a repeat?
    I mean there is no Big Bang Theory or Modern Family either so does that mean they are slipping? Nope just means those show aired a repeat in that week.

  • Russell

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. did’nt air the week of October 28-November 3. That’s why its not on the list

  • Ryan

    @shogun- Shield didn’t air a new episode that week

  • Carol_R

    Shogun –

    It’s not desirable to make this list. It means that Agents of Shield viewers like the show enough to watch it live.

  • Flame

    Looks like Hart of Dixie went from 0.4 to 0.7 since it didn’t make the percentage list.

  • Percysowner

    Shield not making the charts is going to be hard for fans to explain.

    Not really, Shield was a repeat on Oct 29. Don’t get me wrong the only thing that really counts is Live plus Same Day and that’s what we should watch. But Shield not going up in Live +7 on a repeat is no big dea.

  • Katiebug

    Wow – not 1 FOX show at all. Usually New Girl is on the list. If Glee aired that week it would be on as well.

  • reedmac

    Looks like the most Supernatural could have gotten is a 1.6 which is about what its been doing all season so far?

  • Alan

    TCD :D
