Nielsen has released a boatload of statistics looking back at the year that was 2006. If you want to know what the top 10 movies, digital music downloads, or cited Wikipedia entries, they've got it.
What I found most interesting was the comparison of the rankings for the top 10 regularly scheduled television programs and the top 10 programs that viewers time-shifted with a PVR, VCR, or other device. Not surprisingly, many of the shows on the live list are reality-based shows such as American Idol, which become stale if you don't watch them right away. The time-shifted list, features a lot of shows with lower ratings, many of which appear to be on the CW network. I guess time-shifters skew young?
Anyway, without further ado, here are the two lists:

Top 10 TV Programs - Regularly Scheduled - 2006 Rank Programs Network % of Homes in U.S. (Rating)

AMERICAN IDOL-TUESDAY FOX 17.7
AMERICAN IDOL-WEDNESDAY FOX 17.2
DANCING WITH THE STARS ABC 12.7
CSI CBS 12.0
DANCING W/STARS RESULTS ABC 11.4
NBC SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL NBC 11.1
CSI: MIAMI CBS 10.3
DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES ABC 10.2
HOUSE FOX 10.0
DEAL OR NO DEAL-MON NBC 9.8
