Neither Bill or I is a big believer in DVR increases mattering much to a show’s prospects, but we are numbers junkies and know there is some demand.  Bill has the regular post that focuses on the top 20 most DVRd shows, and the top 20 shows with the largest % viewing by DVR here.

Here, I’m posting the improvements to 18-49 ratings points over the Live+SD  ratings points.  Again, these are ratings points out to hundredths, and NOT millions of viewers.  These are for the 2/27 airings of Dollhouse and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and the 2/23 airing of Chuck:

Show Live+SD 18-49 Rating Live+7 18-49 Rating %increase
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles 1.21 1.71 41.3%
Dollhouse 1.61 2.19 36.0%
Chuck 2.30 2.75 19.6%

I know a lot of people go whoooo-hoo, 41%!!  But this is why I am a bigger believer in absolute increases in most cases than percentage increases.  I have ranked this list, by % increase, but that’s not particularlyly meaningful.  Are  TSCC‘s prospects better than the prospects for Dollhouse or Chuck?
