'Revolution,' 'Modern Family,' 'Big Bang' Top Premiere Week's 7-Day DVR Ratings Gains

Those that saw the biggest initial gains -- "Glee," "Grimm" and "New Girl" among them -- maintained that growth over their first week, while several under-performing freshmen get promising boosts.

Final time-delay returns are in for the 2012-13 TV season's official premiere week, and those who reaped the initial benefits of DVR boosts in Live+3 Day numbers are seeing them again in Live+7.

They may not be as important as those Live+3 Day ratings -- networks trump those with advertisers -- but the season's first seven-day returns show that time-shifting continues to be on the rise.

Live+7 changes the official ranking very little (and an even Sunday Night Football remains on top without any delayed viewing), though several scripted series did push ahead of one or both broadcasts of The Voice. NBC's Revolution, most notably, saw a 68 percent bump after already scoring record growth in Live+3. The freshman drama pushed into the top five with 68 percent growth in the key demographic, moving 2.3 points to a 5.7 rating among adults 18-49.

Revolution sits below only Modern Family (42 percent boost to a 7.8 adults rating), The Big Bang Theory (38 percent to a 6.9) and Grey's Anatomy (34 percent to a 5.9) in scripted programming.

In raw points, New Girl (4.3 and 4.2 adults ratings), Glee (3.9 adults rating), Once Upon a Time (5.3 adults rating) and Elementary (4.5 adults rating) saw the biggest gains with seven days -- behind the top four.

As percentages go, nothing moved as much as Grimm. The Friday drama moved up a whopping 81 percent, nearly doubling its Live+Same-Day showing for a 2.9 rating with adults 18-49. Fellow Friday series Fringe had huge growth too, falling just shy of Revolution's boost with a 64 percent improvement (1.8 adults rating).

With several freshman series already in the clear for a full season, and only one removed from the schedule, a few less stellar ratings performers have also gotten a bit of redemption in Live+7. Most notably, 666 Park Avenue (52 percent to a 3.2 adults rating) and Last Resort (45 percent to a 3.2 adults rating) both pushed past the 3.0 mark, joining Elementary and Vegas and the already picked-up Go On, The Mindy Project and New Normal.
