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.

    @debra,

    A Garth Brooks special preempted H50 on this week.

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    The Blacklist, Grimm, and Sleepy Hollow in the top-10 of all three lists.

    Go Sleepy Hollow!

  • Simon

    The Blacklist is a monster!

  • Noel

    Oh yeah Dracula and Nikita! Still too low for nikita oh well it’s over anyway. Pretty sure Elementary was not new during that week.

  • Billiam

    @Brandy

    I want to remind you that TTP’s worst number yet is 0.5 and that was only the latest episode (which they shouldn’t have scheduled in Decenber) and that prior episodes were getting 0.6-0.7.

    I’m not saying that you are wrong about the CW… I’m just reminding you that Reign is in the same boat with a 0.6. While its total viewers number seems to be growing (and that could mean either steady numbers or better in the spring for the demo), we won’t know until we get there. The only advantage that Reign might have is if CW wants to build their non-Genre following but look at what happened when TCD was renewed for a second season.. it crashed and burned and didn’t even get a back-9 order.

    We will have a much better idea at the end of March… so, no one should be panicking at this point.

  • Billiam

    Yesterday, I read a post from someone at another site and they suggested purchasing episodes in mass on iTunes of your favorite show to show the network your support of the show. While it gets expensive at $3 an episode, that would be a way to possibly save your favorite show from the Cancellation Bear.

    I am not sure if there’s much truth to this but I heard that ‘Chuck’ was saved for season 4 and 5 when fans went in mass to its sponsor ‘Subway’, spent money and let them know they were fans of the show. While that is a good idea too, nothing shows the networks you mean business like putting money directly into their pockets.

  • GG

    These are the wrong numbers. This is week 11

  • Stacie

    Yay for Grimm

  • GG

    Sorry, to clarify, the numbers are correct but the week is wrong. These numbers are for Week 11 not Week 10. These are not the numbers for Thanksgiving week

  • GG

    Sorry again. I am completely wrong with my posts. I sincerely apologize

  • Debra

    @CBSViewer:LOL,I suddenly remembered about NCIS being preempted for Rudolph while driving somewhere to get a bite to eat.

    @OriginalRandy:Thanks, I had forgotten all about the Garth Brook special until you mentioned it.

  • João Paulo (@JPaulo645)

    Go POI go.

  • Brandy

    @Billiam But Reign has grown in total viewers and a few weeks ago to 0.7 in demo.TTP went from 0.9 to 0.5 in eight weeks while Reign went from 0.8 to 0.6 .Reign does very well online and well in W18-34& A13-34 while TTP.I really don’t think TTP will stay steady or do well enough on Mon. To warrant renwal.Plus Reign,SC,BatB are the only CBS owned/produced shows and with BatB basically cancelled,CW will keep one or both Reign,SC on while TTP is either WB or joint production.TTP will drop in spring as a lot of shows and with the move to Mon most shows fall with moves.TTP has proved its leadin depedent.

  • lll

    That was the week Taraji P Henson was written out of person of interest. I knew it would skyrocket from the online backlash alone. Great week for them.

  • Ally Oop

    @Mi

    The football season is over by the time Tomorrow People relocates to Mondays so yes, a male target demo show does stand a better chance. I’m not a Tomorrow People fan myself but I do think it is a bubble show for renewal if it can maintain a .4 or better. Considering BATB and HOD ratings on Mondays this year and a lack of a good lead-in, the CW will not expect much from TTP.

    And for those of you who say since the CW has changed their expectations to higher ones based on this season’s success, also consider that this is the tv business, and fortunes can change from season to season. I think that a smart thing for the CW to do is to order a half season of TTP for next year and if next year’s freshman class bombs, at least they’ll have TTP for insurance. Focus on building slowly rather than changing the benchmark too quickly.

  • Jon

    Blacklist will average out as this years top rated drama. Only big bang theory will beat it. But then again big bang beats everyone.

  • Galinthebiz

    @Jon
    Actually, so far Scandal is out rating Blacklist in C3s…
    Which is all that really matters.

  • Brandy

    @AllyOop if TTP does 0.4 in spring on Mon & by miiracle gets renewed, itl be like BatB,0.3 & lower next season.

  • Tom

    @Galinthebiz

    Actually, on Live +SD (which is what really matters), Blacklist is beating Scandal by 0.15 of a point.

  • Ally Oop

    @Brandy

    Yes, but TTP would still be doing better than the previous season’s bottom-dwellers. Perhaps this year .4 is the benchmark for renewal of a Monday or Friday show. Next year raise the benchmark to .5

    Another thing to consider is that even more people next year will be watching their shows via pvr so ratings across all networks excepting sports will be even lower.
