After becoming the first broadcast show to grow by 5 million viewers or more from Live+Same Day to Live+3, NBC‘s hot freshman The Blacklist has set another DVR record, becoming the first broadcast series to add more than 6 million viewers from L+SD to Live+7. Both milestones were achieved by Blacklist’s second episode, which averaged 17.9 million viewers in Live+7, up 6.50 million or 57% vs. the 11.35 million who watched live or the night of the original airing.

Proving that DVR viewing is growing in leaps and bounds this season, the previous record for Live+7 viewership gain was posted only a week earlier, by CBS monster hit The Big Bang Theory, which added 5.7 million viewers for its season premiere between Live+SD and Live+7. What’s more, The Blacklist was able to erase its entire 13% Second Week drop among adults 18-49 in Live+SD through time shifted viewing. The second episode of the James Spader starrer rose to a 5.49 18-49 rating in week two, matching exactly its premiere 18-49 result. It appears to be the only new series to hold onto its premiere rating in Week 2 this season. The Blacklist also supplanted ABC‘s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. as the No.1 new series in 18-49 as S.H.I.E.L.D. dropped 23% in Week 2 L+7 vs. its debut to a 5.4. For Fox‘s Sleepy Hollow, which launched a week earlier, the Week 2 drop-off in L+7 was 9%. Big Bang remained the highest-rated broadcast program for a second straight week (7.6 in L+7), eclipsing NBC’s Sunday Night Football.

Other highlights from the second week of the season’s Live+7 results: Does anyone watch New Girl live? The Fox comedy almost doubled its live+SD result, posting the biggest percentage gain in Live+7, 89%, to a 3.6. It was followed by fellow Fox comedy, newbie Brooklyn Nine-Nine, up 79% to a 2.5. Coincidentally, the two heavily DVR-ed comedies are set to air behind the biggest live TV event, the upcoming Super Bowl. Here are the 18-49 program rankings for the second week of the 2013-14 season:
