THR is reporting that Fringe and The Vampire Diaries are among the shows that produced an increase in ratings after DVR totals came in for the week of Sept. 20th.
Granted, this was before all the fall shows premiered; however, both shows are still holding their own for their respective networks. “The CW again this year is showing significant gains. “Vampire Dairies” (2.1 adults 18-49 rating) was the largest gainer of the week, rising 31%. “Melrose Place” (1.3) and Fox’s “Fringe” (3.9) both rose 30%. NBC’s “The Office” (5.2) went up 27%. Fox’s “Bones” (3.9) climbed 26%.”
The fact that most of these shows are on at the same time couldn’t possibly have anything to do with DVR numbers, right?
