Live+7 Benefits Struggling and Strong

The Live Feed is reporting that the DVR Live+7 used by primetime TV has helped a slew of TV shows achieve marked gains in ratings. Life, Lipstick Jungle, Heroes, 90210, Grey's Anatomy, Dirty Sexy Money, Private Practice, Smallville, Prison Break, Boston Legal, Terminator and Chuck all had viewership gains of 17 - 36%.

No wonder several of these smaller shows have been picked up by their networks. What I don't understand is why the ratings for daytime soaps, which require an even larger commitment to watch, aren't calculated on Live+7? Imagine the percentage of viewership increases the soaps could have if their ratings were calculated with Live+7?

Visit The Live Feed to find out how much your favorite show's ratings increased with Live+7.

According to IMDB Riker has appeared in a host of primetime TV shows including Big Love, The Closer, Boston Legal, Malcum in the Middle, Crossing Jordan, NCIS, Dragnet and Reba to name a few.

Now since bloggers like to dig up the old work of stars from their earlier days, I found this You Tube gem from Riker's 1980 film Alligator. Oh the cheesy goodness of the 80's.
