'This Is Us' Outpaces Premiere's 7-Day Gains in Week 8

THIS IS US Changes Episode 503

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.
