    1. Will & Grace and the Chicago triplets are all doing very well in delayed viewing for NBC. In particular with Will & Grace the gains it’s getting off of DVR to being one of the top 10 or top 15 shows on this list shows you that the lead-ins have been pathetic and that if you give W&G the proper lead-in it can pickup from where it did back in the fall next season. I would give W&G the This Is Us or The Voice lead-in on Tuesdays so that it can help lead a block in 2019-20.

    2. This is awesome Douglas. Will have a much lighter load request-wise now! 🙂
