Cable delivers the most top TV programs when it comes to the percentage of its audience that time-shifts viewings.

This data comes from Nielsen Media Research, Jan. 1 to Nov. 30, 2008, and includes time-shifted playback of up to seven days.

Sci Fi Channel had three shows in total that made the top 10. The other two were series, "Sanctuary" and "Eureka," which earned 35% and 34% of their respective audiences via DVR playback ...
