    L+3: LAST WEEK’S “THIS IS US” GREW BY A BEST-YET 5.0 MILLION VIEWERS, BIGGEST L+3 LIFT EVER FOR A TUESDAY SHOW ON ANY BROADCAST NET

    On Valentines’ Day, NBC wins its seventh straight Tuesday in adults 18-49 and also leads in most other key demographics, paced by the #1 show of the night in adults 18-49, “This Is Us.”

    “This Is Us” (2.4/8 in 18-49, 9.0 million viewers overall from 9-10 p.m. PT):
    · Ranks as the #1 show of the night in adults 18-49.
    · Retains 96% of last week’s 2.5 in these prelim fast-affiliate ratings on a night of Valentine’s Day distractions, and 92% of last week’s 2.6 in official nationals.
    Delivers an +85% margin of victory in the timeslot over #2 “Bull” in 18-49 (2.4 vs. 1.3).
    It’s the 13th straight “Us” original to rank as the #1 entertainment show of the night in 18-49 on the Big 4.
    Will add substantial viewership via time-shifting and VOD – last week’s “Us” increased by +77% in 18-49 (2.55 to 4.52) and +5.0 million viewers overall (9.6 million to 14.6 million) going from L+SD to L+3 Nielsens.
    The +5.0 million gain was the biggest-yet for “Us” and set a new record for biggest lift ever for a Tuesday program on any broadcast network.

    It’s the 42nd consecutive “Fire” original to win the 10 p.m. timeslot in 18-49 versus regular ABC-CBS competition, dating back to February 2015.
    · Will add substantial viewership via time-shifting and VOD – so far this season, “Chicago Fire” has grown by +61% in 18-49 rating (from a 1.63 to a 2.62) and +3.7 million viewers overall (7.3 million to 11.0 million) going from L+SD to L+7.

    · Upscale: “The Wall” is delivering a strong upscale audience, indexing at a 115 among adults 18-49 in $100K+ homes

    In Late-Night Metered Markets Tuesday Night:

    · In Nielsen’s 56 metered markets, household results were: “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” 2.2/6; “Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” 2.8/8; and ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” 1.5/4.

    · In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” 0.7/4; “Late Show,” 0.6/3; and “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” 0.4/2.

    · From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC’s “Nightline” averaged a 1.1/4 in metered-market households and a 0.3/2 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.

    · From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, ratings were: “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” 1.1/4 in metered-market households; CBS’s “Late Late Show,” 1.3/5. In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, averages were: “Late Night,” 0.3/3 in 18-49; “Late Late Show,” 0.3/3.

    · At 1:35 a.m., “Last Call with Carson Daly” averaged a 0.7/3 in metered-market households and a 0.2/2 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

    NOTE: Primetime results are based on “fast official” data from Nielsen Media Research. All ratings are “live plus same day” unless otherwise indicated.

    • What do you think about This is Us being Wednesday at 8PM for NBC next season? It doesn’t need a lead in and it’s a family show which makes 8PM perfect. And I am sure it can beat what usually wins that hour (half hour really) the Goldbergs.

      • I don’t think NBC will move This Is Us out of Tuesday night. With worries about a declining Voice, we may see a Wall/This Is Us/Fire Tuesday next season with Voice only on Mondays.

        • I don’t think they will condense the Voice unless they go ahead with the American Idol pick up. I guess we’ll see. They have to do something with all these Chicago shows. I don’t think they should over use the Wall. Game shows tend to decrease fast when over exposed.

  2. FROM CBS

    “NCIS” WINS TIME PERIOD IN ALL MEASURES,
    UP +6% IN A18-49 FROM A WEEK AGO

    “NCIS: New Orleans” Grows +20% in A18-49
    and +13% in Viewers

    “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Tops Late Night, Posting its Highest Tuesday
    Overnight Rating Since Sept.; Grows +33% From Same Night Last Year

    “The Late Late Show with James Corden” Places First in Time Period
    For the Second Consecutive Night, Up +18% From Year Ago

    · At 8:00 PM, NCIS was first in viewers (15.05m), A18-49 (1.8, up +6% from 1.7 last week) and A25-54 (2.8, up +4% from 2.7). NCIS was Tuesday’s most watched program.

    · At 9:00 PM, BULL was first in viewers (10.57m) and second in A18-49 (1.3, nc) and A25-54 (2.1 up +5% from 2.0).

    · At 10:00 PM, NCIS: NEW ORLEANS was first in viewers (10.22, up +13% from 9.01m) and second in A18-49 (1.2, +20% from 1.0) and A25-54 (1.9, up +12% from 1.7). NCIS: NEW ORLEANS posted its largest audience since Dec. 13.

    · For the night, CBS was first in viewers (11.95m) and second in A18-49 (1.5) and A25-54 (2.2).

    THE LATE SHOW

    · From 11:35PM-12:35AM, THE LATE SHOW with STEPHEN COLBERT finished first in the 56 overnight metered markets on Tuesday night. THE LATE SHOW’s 2.8 last night marks the show’s highest Tuesday local rating since Sept. 22, 2015. THE LATE SHOW was up +8% over last week and +33% over the same night a year ago.

    THE LATE LATE SHOW

    · From 12:35AM-1:35AM, THE LATE LATE SHOW with JAMES CORDEN placed first in the 56 overnight metered markets (1.3) for the second consecutive night. THE LATE LATE SHOW was up +18% over both its last Tuesday first run on 1/31 and the same week last year.

  3. This is Us needs to be Wed at 8PM in the next season schedule. It would clearly beat ABC for the hour and it’s a family show and doesn’t need a lead in.

    FOX is just embarrassing. Sad at how Bones is going out with a whimper. Anybody find it even more sad that the Mick will be a show in for renewal and that number is their highest rated non animated sitcom? SMH. FOX is in worse shape than NBC was years ago. FOX will be in worse shape and look worse if NBC brings American Idol back.

    Agents of SHIELD doesn’t deserve a renewal but I have a hunch ABC may give it a reduced order final season.
