DVR is an amazing advancement is TV tech. But it doesn't have as huge of an impact on any TV show for me, in comparison to hoops.
I can still watch a normal TV show w/o DVR. Football, hockey, the news, etc. but basketball? NO WAY. I can't watch Mich-Purdue without having a 45+ min lag on my DVR, let a lone an important game. I don't even consider watching M games in real time anymore. the times out are ridic and the DVR'd alternative is 100000000 times better.
