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.

    Go ABC! More shows in top 10 demo gainers than any other network, thanks to powerhouses, Greys, Scandal, SHIELD, and Castle.

    Grey’s still doing 4.0+ and 13 million+ in its 10th season is unbelievable.

    Wow at ONCE, gained a lot.

  • Matt M.

    SHIELD is now the #1 TV Show on Tuesday! So much for ‘disappointment’ and ‘flop’…

  • Juud

    Where did Reign go? Did it get a 1.0 in L+7?

  • Paul

    Good for Goldbergs and Shield!

  • Flame

    @Matt M. who wrote: “Go ABC! More shows in top 10 demo gainers than any other network, thanks to powerhouses, Greys, Scandal, SHIELD, and Castle.”

    -> Even the ABC press release admitted that they tied with CBS for most gainers. The 10th spot is shared between OUAT and Mother.

  • Jami

    Wow NBC had only 4 scipted shows with dvr ratings increase. Way to go REVOLUTION viewership Live +7 2.5 almost 8 million viewers. Revolution added 2.7 million viewers. Not bad for a genre show at a crappy time slot.

    I wonder if the networks really look at this, when it comes time for renewal or scheduling? The Networks should, I bet Netflix looks at this stuff.

  • fra

    What are the Arrow’s and TVD’s results?

  • Alan

    Decent for Sleepy Hollow, Revenge and some CW shows!

  • Sky Angel

    The Ratings Suck for Beauty And The Beast.I wish it was doing better its a good show
