Tuesday Final Nationals: ‘This Is Us’ on NBC and ‘American Housewife’ on ABC Both Again Build Out of Their Hit Lead-Ins Among Young Adults

FS1 Runner-Up in Adults 18-49 with NLCS Game 3

Tuesday again belonged to CBS among total viewers (12.19 million) and NBC among adults 18-49 (2.3 rating/8 share), adults 18-34 (1.5/7) and adults 25-54 (3.0/9).

The night featured two freshman series that, for the second consecutive Tuesday, improved upon their veteran hit lead-ins among adults 18-49 and adults 18-34: NBC’s “This Is Us” (2.6 adults 18-49 rating, 1.9 adults 18-34 rating) increased from “The Voice” (2.5 adults 18-49 rating, 1.6 adults 18-34 rating) and ABC’s “American Housewife” (1.7 adults 18-49 rating, 0.9 adults 18-34 rating) increased from “The Middle” (1.5 adults 18-49 rating, 0.8 adults 18-34 rating).

FS1 was prime time’s the No. 3 network in total viewers and households, runner-up in adults 18-49 and in a virtual tie with NBC for the lead among adults 18-34, courtesy of Cubs-Dodgers in Game 3 of the “National League Championship Series”. At 6.494 million viewers (along with a 3.9 U.S. household rating, a 1.89 adults 18-49 rating and a 1.5 adults 18-34 rating), it more than doubled the audience and households of the year-ago LCS Game 3 on FS1 (Royals-Blue Jays FS1 10/19/15 1.89 U.S. household rating, 3.092 million viewers). Through the first three games, FS1’s 2016 NLCS has averaged 6.514 million viewers — a +60 percent increase from FS1’s 2015 ALCS.
