    DIGITAL: LAST WEEK’S “THIS IS US” DEBUT JUMPS +17% VS. THE YEAR-AGO SEASON PREMERIE ON NON-LINEAR PLATFORMS, FOR ITS 3RD- BEST 7-DAY DIGITAL PERFORMANCE EVER

    L+3: LAST WEEK’S “THIS IS US” & “NEW AMSTERDAM” GENERATE THE NIGHT’S #1-2 BIGGEST L+3 LIFTS

    NBC wins the night among the Big 4 networks in adults 18-49 and every other key demo, sweeping 6 of 6 half-hours in adults 18-49 to take the night by a +58% margin (with a 1.9 average rating vs. a 1.2 for #2 CBS).

    “This Is Us” (2.4 rating in 18-49, 8.8 million viewers overall from 9-10:01 p.m. ET):

    · Is the #1 show of the night in nine of nine key demographics – adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54.

    · Doubles the timeslot’s #2 program in adults 18-49 (2.4 vs. 1.2 for CBS’ “FBI”).

    · Wins the time period among the Big 4 networks in every key demographic

    · Performs in line with where the show concluded last season over its final four telecasts in 18-49 (2.4 vs. 2.5 in 18-49 from Feb. 6 through March 13).

    · Will grow dramatically via time-shifting and VOD:

    o Last week’s “This Is Us” grew by +43% in 18-49 (2.97 to 4.26) and more than +4.0 million viewers overall (10.5 million to 14.6 million) going from L+SD to L+3 Nielsens.

    o These were the largest L+3 lifts of the night in adult 18-49 rating and total viewers.

    o L+7: Last season, “This Is Us” increased by +73% in 18-49 rating (from a 3.09 to a 5.36) and more than +6.2 million viewers overall (11.2 million to 17.4 million) going from L+SD to L+7.

    o Digital: The “This Is Us” season premiere is up +17% versus the year-ago debut episode through seven days of non-linear digital viewership, amassing a projected 1.71 rating in adults 18-49 versus the year-ago 1.46. It’s the third-best seven-day digital performance ever for “This Is Us,” trailing the post-Super Bowl telecast on Feb. 4 (1.91) and slightly behind the show’s prior telecast on Jan. 23 (1.72).

    · Upscale: Last season, “This Is Us” generated a strong upscale audience, indexing at a 144 among adults 18-49 living in homes with $100K+ incomes.

  3. NBC continues to do well at the top on Tuesdays but that slippage for New Amsterdam is a bit concerning. I don’t believe it holds up on its own if it was by itself. FBI, on the other hand, did a much better job of holding on week-to-week in my opinion.

    ABC is gonna have to move DWTS but I don’t think it should be canned just yet try Sundays or Fridays I think that it needs to get away from The Voice.

    Lethal Weapon should’ve been on after Last Man Standing and Cool Kids either on Fridays or Tuesdays assuming Tuesdays because SmackDown is moving to Fridays next fall.

    • Lethal Weapon is falling apart. Another cast member is randomly quitting now. I wouldn’t be shocked if it ends sooner rather than later.

      • Yeah LW is really falling apart I think it’s done as Damon Wayans basically was the show so I expect it to end this season which probably plays out perfectly for FOX since that opens up a slot next season.

        BTW, love the Friday the 13th avatar as well.
