    Don’t have week to week figures (at least not that I can see), but as a trend this doesn’t surprise me. Often the Sunday night line-up is live F1 on One from 9pm, with House followed by delayed F1 on Ten. I would expect a number of people to watch the F1 live on One and record House on Ten to watch later. The specific week referred to in the article was the weekend of Le Mans (though I don’t recall if this specifically was on at the same time as House, but I think it was), so same principle. Live sport takes precedence in any clash.

    If people are timeshifting, it’s likely that they are fast forwarding through the ad. In that resect I don’t think the networks should take consolidated figures into account.

    @aznfratboy – not unless you have a ratings meeter box…

    I hope the networks are finally taking these numbers into account before cutting or moving shows that under perform.

    Pretty interesting figures there, the house one esp!

    House seems to be very regularly at the top of the timeshifting list. This indicates to me that Ten has given it the wrong timeslot.

    i’ve been missing seeing these results!

    So, which ratings are considered “official” – because this is a very different list. It allays fears of good wife being axed too (which is my drug of choice)

    What sort of timeshifting is this? I taped NCIS LA with my oldschool VCR, does that count to this data?
