The Live+7 ratings for premiere week were released today, and they confirm what we already know: that people are time-shifting their TV viewing more than ever. For instance, an unprecedented three programs added at least 4 million viewers between Live+Same Day and Live+7, led by ABC’s Modern Family, which added 4.7 million and 4.6 million viewers, respectively, to the tally of its two-episode season premiere. CBS’ Two And A Half Men followed with 4.1 million. Modern Family was the champ in net gain both in total viewers and adults 18-49 (a 2.4 demo rating lift), where it also was followed by Two And A Half Men (2.3). The CW’s Supernatural topped the chart of the shows with the largest percentage gain with 63%, followed by CW’s America’s Next Top Model (57%) and Fox’s Fringe (53%). NBC’s struggling Harry’s Law got a much needed boost, up 42% in the demo, while the 38% lift for NBC’s canceled The Playboy Club came too late. The CW, whose target demo is on average the most digitally savvy, dominated the top of the percentage-gain rankings with six of the top 10 shows. That translated into a big lift for the CW in the network standings for premiere week, doubling the closest network in percentage gains. Among the Big 4, CBS posted the largest net and percentage gain in both 18-49 and total viewers. Here are the network rankings as well as lists of the Top 10 Programs in adults 18-49/total viewer net increase and 18-49 percentage growth for premiere week:
