BSG Is King Of Timeshifting

The return of Battlestar Galactica was even more successful for the SciFi Channel than they'd originally thought, as new figures show that the show gained 32% more viewers when DVR audiences are taken into account.

It's not just the overall viewing figures that took a leap once TiVo and other time-shifted audiences were factored into the debut of the show's final episodes (Although the audience did rise to 2.8 million); the all important audience demographics shifted dramatically, too; adults 18-49 rose by an amazing 38% (25-54 rose by 35%). What may be most interesting about these figures, however, may be that they're below Galactica's 2008 run, which saw audiences rise by 53% on average.

Apparently, more people like to stay in on Friday nights than they used to.
