The early Live+3 DVR numbers for Tuesday, September 23 are largely about ameliorating the Live+SD numbers for a couple shows that looked like minor disappointments and being reminded that when it comes to DVR numbers, the rich often get richer.
When it comes to the rich getting richer, the premiere of "NCIS" added nearly 3.3 million viewers and went from 18.23 million in Live+Same Day to 21.52 million in Live+3 Day, also picking up a full ratings point among adults 18-49 to end up with a 3.9 rating in the key demographic.
Also growing from an already high position was the series launch of "NCIS: New Orleans," which added 2.82 million viewers to reach 20.05 million in Live+3. The 18-49 DVR growth for "NCIS: New Orleans" was an unremarkable 28 percent, but that just meant it ended up with a 3.2 rating in the key demo, as well as a 4.7 rating in CBS' coveted 25-54 demo.
