If you've noticed that your late-night Web browsing tends to move a bit slower than normal, there may well be a good explanation.  A recent study has shown that peak Internet usage in North America occurs around 11 p.m., representing a significant shift from previous years in which Internet traffic peaked during the daytime. According to the study conducted by Internet security firm Arbor Networks, another smaller peak was detected around 4 o'clock in the afternoon, as kids are getting...

By Gary Levin Networks worried about declining ratings can take some comfort in the growing DVR crowd. In the first set of delayed-viewing numbers from the new season, out Monday, the four major broadcast networks collectively added an average of nearly 3 million viewers who watched shows from one to seven days after their original airing. In all, 16 prime-time series on the four major networks gained 1 million or more viewers. But the gains are particularly startling for some...

By Gail Pennington Talk about culture shock. As of this week, "regular TV" is back, and TV hasn't really been regular since last winter, when the writers strike disrupted network schedules. Sooner or later, every series was forced into premature reruns, and some never returned. Unscripted shows, many of them missable, filled prime time. And then it was summer -- rerun time. So the arrival of the fall TV season has some TV fans hyperventilating, not so much from excitement as from...

By Stark, Eric It's time. Finally. The new television season starts this week and, believe me, I'm ready. I've had enough of the reruns, summer replacements and reality shows. Both Fox and ABC networks are in good situations this fall. Neither has a lot of new shows, and that's not a bad thing. It means either last year's shows were successful, or the networks are giving programs time to build an audience. It's all too common for networks to give up on shows too fast. "The thing about...

By Chuck Barney The networks are still withholding some pilots from us (blame the strike, they say). But that doesn't mean we can't do a cursory slalom through the new shows and toss in some snap judgments along the way. Here's a rundown to help you get with the program: Monday -- "Worst Week" (9:30 p.m., CBS, Sept. 22): Newcomer Kyle Bornheimer stars in this slapstick romp as a bumbling klutz whose attempts to win over his future in-laws always go horribly -- and hilariously -- awry....

By Kamini Mathai CHENNAI: Late nights at the office, deadlines to meet, traffic jams, crowded gyms, household chores, working moms, so how do you fit an hour's workout into your busy schedule? Simple, say this lot of working professionals, who simply slip out of work at lunch time and, instead of digging into a 500 calorie meal, burn off about the same amount by sweating it out at the gym closest to their office. Like Dr Prithviraj T, a laparoscopic surgeon at Apollo Hospitals who works...

By Alan Pergament There isn't any way to be certain, but it sure looks like the labor-management battle at Channel 7 is further eroding the news ratings at the third-place station. One thing is for certain -- the union Web site 7NewsUnfair.com and its campaign asking viewers to turn off Channel 7 isn't helping the ABC affiliate. In the just-completed July rating period, 7 News saw news rating declines ranging from 15 percent to 27 percent from a year ago for the late afternoon and...

By DAVID BAUDER By David Bauder The Associated Press NEW YORK CBS GOT A PAW UP on its competition with the debut of "Greatest American Dog" helping the network to a midsummer ratings victory. The new competition was the sixth-most popular show on prime- time television last week, with 9.5 million viewers, Nielsen Media Research reported Tuesday. With a month to go before the Olympics, summer's run of contrived network competition continued to dominate. Eight of TV's 11 most-...
