More Good News for How to Get Away With Murder

'How to Get Away With Murder' Breaks DVR Records

It's safe to call How to Get Away With Murder the surest bet among this fall's crop of new series thus far. Now that live-plus-3 ratings are in for most of premiere week, the ABC drama stands as the top freshman performer in the adults 18-49 demographic and boasts the biggest DVR viewership increase in history. 

The Shonda Rhimes-produced series skyrocketed to 20.3 million viewers and a 5.8 rating among adults 18-49. Not only do those gains top the growth of previous freshman demo champ Gotham, they eclipse its total haul as well. Each fall has produced new time-shifting records as more and more viewers choose to watch broadcast series on their own timetable, but How to Get Away With Murder's increase of 6 million blows all previous live-plus-3 improvements out of the water.
