The war-related comments by Oscar winners Michael Moore and Adrien Brody were the most replayed part Sunday's Academy Awards broadcast, according to TiVo, the personal video recorder technology company.
The single most paused or freeze-framed event of the live show was the stage entrance of presenter Julia Roberts.
[...] TiVo also reported that viewership dropped off heavily during commercials in the Oscars show, but speculated that this was because viewers were using commercial breaks to tune into other sources of news programming to follow the dramatic events of the war in Iraq.
The measurement of audience behavior was based on a review of 10,000 of TiVo anonymous subscribers' viewing patterns during the broadcast.
No stats on fast-forwarding? This article seems to imply that all of these people were watching the show live, which I would never do. After your first week with Tivo you catch on that there's no benefit at all to watching TV live instead of time-shifted, because that just means that you can't fast-forward.
I hadn't realized they collected stats on pausing, etc. That must be a lot of data. But I guess it compresses well.
