'This Is Us' Outpaces Premiere's 7-Day Gains in Week 8
NBC's This Is Us posted bigger delayed viewing gains for its Nov. 10 episode than for the season premiere two weeks earlier.
The drama added 1.23 points to its adults 18-49 rating over seven days, rising from a 1.29 for its initial airing to a 2.52. That's ahead of the 1.14-point gain for the Oct. 27 season premiere. The Nov. 10 episode, "Changes," also grew by 4.26 million viewers, up from a 4.12 million viewer bump for the opener.
The improvements in delayed viewing for This Is Us means that "Changes" held onto 98 percent of the two-hour premiere's seven day rating in the 18-49 demographic and 97 percent of its total audience.
A pair of ABC shows got the largest ratings boosts in the week of Nov. 9: The two-hour premiere of Grey's Anatomy rose by 1.25 points in the 18-49 demo, and The Good Doctor tacked on the most total viewers at 4.31 million.
