As age increases, so does reliance on Live viewing. A55-64 were the only age group with more than half of viewing spent watching Live broadcast, primetime programs.
Viewing programs on DVR within 7 days of the TV telecast was relatively similar across age groups with ~35% of viewing time.

The launch of Orange is the New Black Season 3 drove a substantial dip in other TV viewing, among those watching during the premiere week.



Viewers watching any season of OITNB during the Season 3 premiere week, spent over 20% of TV viewing time watching OITNB the weeks of 6/8 and 6/15, and then returned to typical viewing levels after three weeks.
Total TV viewing among OITNB premiere week viewers increased by only 7%, indicating that viewers watched OITNB instead of other TV.
