We think we may have a new complete source for DVR numbers, but we don’t have them yet, so to tide you over here is a graphic of the top 10 most viewed shows in DVR playback among 18-49 year olds for the week of 12/8-14 via a Fox press release. Please keep in mind that typically we measured the entire DVR viewing audience of people aged two and above, and these numbers are only for 18-49 year olds:

For reference, here are the top 20 shows for adults 18-49 in the same week for Live+SD viewing.


Time Shifted Viewing – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live+Same Day (Live+SD) and Live+7 Day. Time shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs which are currently in approximately 24.4% of all U.S. TV households. Live+Same Day(Live+SD) 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.
