  1. This is Us is my favorite show right now. Not sure why it appealed to me to watch it in the first place but now I am hooked.

  2. I can’t believe this night is actually going to happen with this biggest game 7 of all-time in any sport. Then the CMAs on tonight celebrating their 50th anniversary at the same time it’s going to be a very special night for television. I’m going to be DVRing the CMAs and watching it in the wee hours of the morning and watch the rest of it either tomorrow or Friday.

  3. This is Us is the first time I have seen a show ever grow out of the Voice numerous times. Looks like NBC may have found something. I hear glowing reviews from folks who watch it.

    World Series tonight is going to be YUGE Lol

    ABC should consider giving Agents of Shield a final season soon.

    • It grew out of the clip show, but lost a significant slice of the audience following original shows.

      That said, it’s an almost solid show so far (much to my surprise and I still predict further erosion – and it did erode a bit again this week) and NBC will claim it is a huge mega-hit considering the rest of its dismal schedule.

      ABC should consider making this episode the last… 😉

  4. This Is Us did OK (relatively) given the lower lead-in.

    That said, it’s getting roughly the same ratings as a Bull re-run, so that’s hardly hit-level…

    Elsewhere, Agent of SHIELD, The Real O’Neals, No Tomorrow, Fresh Off The Boat and The Flash would have been long gone in the era of real hits.
