Overnight ratings have nothing to do w/DVR recordings -- they are added in later, so I'd have to say no.
Wrong -- the most commonly-reported numbers are "live plus same day" numbers. So anybody who would have watched by 3 a.m. on their DVRs should have been counted, but perhaps wasn't.
However I'd say that if the problem was limited to Verizon DVRs and the horrible, worthless guide data from the horrible, worthless FYI Television Inc. provider, then that probably wasn't enough to affect the ratings significantly. Does the pathetic, useless FYI provide guide data to any other companies? AT&T maybe?
So, KCrimson is probably right that it was just competition from Revolution, etc.
As for Two Broke Girls not providing a good lead-in, it wasn't down from the ratings that the sharply declining, equally-hacky and lame 2.5 Men was turning in by spring 2012.
(BTW, I'm not a H5-0 fan. Just an interested observer.)
