StatShot: McDreamy, Tropic Thunder, Obama

We’ve got a new set of numbers for the StatShot family starting today. In addition to TorrentFreak’s Most BitTorrented movies and the Video Breakout’s Cool 100, our good friends at TVbytheNumbers will be sharing with us the top DVR’d programs each week.

And what better way to induct the stats into the family than with a lot of drama. Six dramas, actually, as Grey’s Anatomy had the largest time-shifted audience for last week, followed by House, CSI and a host of other heavy shows. For a little levity, The Office had the biggest increase in DVR vieiwing. Check out the full top 20.

Hollywood spoof Tropic Thunder stormed to the top of TorrentFreak‘s list of the most BitTorrented movies last week, bringing with it some other newcomers, including WALL-E and the colon-heavy trio of The Chronic(what!)cles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the TV movie Futurama: Bender’s Game.
