    Don’t think so Secret Squirrel, if we had that, we’d get all the late night and multi-channel programs which rate close to 0k but have 10+k in timeshift numbers aka massive percentages on the list.

    How I will miss Rafters this year, however it will mean winners and losers will come back sooner.

    Seven pushed Revenge later and later as they stretched out their contest shows.

    People responded by recording it so they could watch it at a reasonable hour. It was the second ep of a double episode that was most timeshifted.

    Grey’s Anatomy also gets a massive percentage boost because it has as loyal fan base but was on later at night.

    It stands to reason that the most popular dramas tend to have the highest time-shifted numbers, altho’ Revenge is slightly anomalous here. A more informative table would be to list the programs in percentage order, with the percentage being the proportion of total (consolodated) viewers who watched a delayed recording, altho’ shows after 9:30 will prob dominate.
