blacklist-dvr-list2.JPGThrough the first seven weeks of the TV season, "The Blacklist" is the runaway leader in DVR ratings. It adds an average of 6,046,000 viewers per episode in Nielsen's Live +7 ratings, leading its closest competitor thus far ("The Big Bang Theory") more than half a million viewers.

If it keeps up that pace, the show will likely become the most-DVR'd series in the brief history of the Live +7 ratings. No other show has averaged even 5 million viewers gained for a full season.

Six million people is a whole lot, in other words. Which got us thinking -- what sorts of things are smaller than "The Blacklist's" DVR audience?

1. The total audience for every single CW series

2. The total audience for NBC's "Sean Saves the World" and "Parks and Recreation"

3. Denmark

4. Missouri

5. The number of people who saw "Thor: The Dark World," "The Best Man Holiday" and "Delivery Man" last weekend*

blacklist-vs-movies.jpg*In all likelihood. The three movies made a combined box office of $34,632,199 for the weekend of Nov. 22-24; with the average movie ticket in the United States costing $7.84, that would mean a little over 4 million people bought tickets.

6. The combined attendance for every NASCAR race in 2013

7. Kylie Jenner's Twitter followers

8. One Direction's U.S. album sales

9. The total audiences for 12 other new network shows this fall
