The first Live+3 results for the 2016-17 season are in, and the DVR+VOD lifts are on par with last year.

Like last year, CBS’ The Big Bang Theory logged the largest absolute L+3 gain, +1.6 rating in 18-49 and +4.43 million viewers. That was in line with last fall’s premiere increases, +1.7 and +4.29 million. Year vs. year, Big Bang‘s opener is down -16% in the demo and -10 in viewers. Still, with 20 million+, in its 10th season Big Bang is drawing a massive audience that is rarely seen on television these days and likely won’t be matched by an entertainment program this premiere week.

The Good Place - Season 1

NBC’s new comedy The Good Place broke the tie with CBS’ newbie Kevin Can Wait because of stronger DVR showing.
