Another detail that last night’s Big Bang Theory got right was the overlap in the Venn diagram of Guys Who Own TiVos and Guys Who Watch Sci-Fi. This appears to be borne out in a bit of good ratings news for both Dollhouse and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (on which should-have-been-Echo Summer Glau appears). Reports James Hibberd, in their second weeks, DVR viewing improved the ratings of both shows 29% from their original airings. No one is out of the woods yet, but that’s quite a boost. (Also, Breaking Bad jumped 21% from its first-season premiere, to a pretty-good-for-AMC 1.7 million viewers.)
