DVR ratings: 'Hawaii Five-0,' 'Grey's Anatomy' are your premiere week champions

hawaii-five-0-alex-olaughlin-scott-caan-320.jpgDVR ratings for the first week of the 2010-11 season are finally out, and the pattern of previous seasons pretty much held: Shows that were big the night they aired were also big in delayed viewing.

Case in point: The premiere of "Hawaii Five-0," which added more viewers (3,374,000) than any other broadcast-network show for the week of Sept. 20-26. It was already a top-15 show in the same-day ratings, and it remained that way in the live-plus-7 tally. (It actually moved up from 11th place to seventh, passing "Grey's Anatomy," "Two and a Half Men," "NCIS: Los Angeles" and the very lightly recorded "60 Minutes.")

"The Mentalist" and "Grey's Anatomy," which jockeyed for the top spot in the DVR rankings last season, came in second and third in terms of viewers added; "The Mentalist" scored 3.2 million extra viewers in the live-plus-7 ratings, while "Grey's" added just under 3 million. "Grey's" was also the biggest gainer in the adults 18-49 demographic, adding 1.4 ratings points. With DVR use factored in it became the week's No. 1 non-sports show in the demo.

After "Five-0," NBC's "The Event" (2,546,000 viewers added) and CBS' "Blue Bloods" (2,224,000) got the biggest boost from DVR ratings. "America's Most Wanted" was the least DVR'd show of premiere week (excluding sports), adding only 87,000 viewers to its total in the live-plus-7 ratings.
