Note that the NBC station in Portland carried NBA basketball.

    “This Is Us” (2.4/7 in 18-49, 8.7 million viewers overall from 9-10 p.m. ET):
    · For a third week in a row has built on its “Voice” lead-in in 18-49 (2.4 vs. 2.1).

  2. FROM THE CW

    A couple of CW notes for you guys as you sort through the World Series ratings… last night’s THE FLASH rose +4% in total viewers (2.779M) from last week, and held even in A18-34 (0.9/4) and A18-49 (1.0/3).

    THE FLASH was #3 in the hour in both A18-34 (tie) and M18-34 (0.9/4).

    NO TOMORROW also gained in total viewers, +6% (853,000), and grew +50% in A18-34 (0.3/1).

    THE FLASH is averaging significant increases in Live + 7 Day delayed viewing this season so far. Through its first two episodes, THE FLASH gained +64% in total viewers (4.88M), +60% in A18-34 (1.6) and +67% in A18-49 (2.0) in L+7 compared to its L+SD totals, and it remains The CW’s highest rated series.

  3. Looks like the This Is Us strange gains last week were just a statistical blip (people often forget you get those usually at least once a season on every show).

    And let me laugh at Agent of SHIELD’s ratings and at Channing Dungey who decided renewing it was a great call and still has a job.
