Fall TV 2011: Which Shows Are You DVRing This Year?

by Chris Harnick, posted Oct 15th 2011 12:00PM
Fringe DVR RatingsSince Nielsen started keeping track of DVR playback, some shows that seemed like they were on death row showed tremendous gains in key ratings demographics.

According to the New York Times, new comedies 'Up All Night' and 'New Girl' had tremendous gains in the 18-49 demographic after Nielsen factored in DVR playback. 'Up All Night' jumped from 2.4 rating to a 3.5 rating. 'New Girl' debuted to a 4.8 rating -- already a great number for a new comedy -- but went up to a 6.7 rating when delayed viewing was factored in. 'Whitney' also went up from a 3.3 rating to a 4.2 rating.

DVR usage matters ... if you're a Nielsen family.

'Fringe' a ratings-challenged show, jumped from a 1.5 rating to a 2.3. Additionally, 'The Office' and 'Modern Family' both regularly show gains when DVRs are factored in.

we tend to DVR most of what we like and then watch it anywhere from an hour to days later to avoid the commercials.

Everything is DVR'd, who watches live TV with commercials anymore? This is not the 1900's! :) Only "Live" stuff if I'm home Dexter/Homeland.
