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.

    Amazing increase for MODERN FAMILY. :)

  • toniacca5

    Any increase for THE NEIGHBORS (also if outside the top 25)?
    Thanks.

  • dommyinla

    that was a great one too… the one in the school… parents day… cam and his dodge-ball game… and jane krackowski guest starred…

  • mathew

    Hate the new comment thing

  • James

    So glad you finally got disqus :D. Nice boost for revolution

  • Nikko Viquiera

    Blacklist still going strong!

  • Pablo Troncoso

    Disqus! Neat!

  • Kissan Capers

    I just love seeing The Blacklist up there with the big boys like Modern Family and TBBT. And the best thing about it is it’s a new show! I don’t like this new comment thing. Maybe I just gotta get used to it.

  • Fred

    Nashville looks like a strong contender for renewal;
    that is if ABC counts the 7 day DVR ratings.

    DVR numbers won’t save Enlisted.

  • 69RoadRunner

    Intelligence is a DVR darling!

  • StevenD

    Should be promising for Chicago PD that it’s DVR numbers are also higher then veteran lead in SVU

  • Tensor11

    In the narrative at the top, it lists The Big Bang Theory as having the largest viewer lift. It was in reruns that week and isn’t on the lift list. The number is also the same as the previous weeks Live + 7 for The Big Bang Theory. The high in viewer lift was The Blacklist with just over 6 million.

  • emtsuj

    What’s the Live+7 viewership for HIMYM? Thanks.

  • Sarah

    Bones! :)
