The huge ratings for “This Is Us” after the Super Bowl on Sunday didn’t carry over to its regular airing Tuesday. The show returned to its prior season average, which still made it the top show of the night in adults 18-49.
“This Is Us” earned a 2.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic, on par with its pre-Super Bowl average. It helped lead NBC to a win for the night along with “Chicago Med” (1.5, tying its season high) and the finale of “Ellen’s Game of Games” (1.9, up 0.1 vs. last week).
Most other shows were down a little bit compared to their last outings. CBS’ “NCIS” (1.4), “Bull” (1.1) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (0.9) all slipped a tenth of a point, as did “Lethal Weapon” (1.1) on FOX, “The Flash” (0.8) on The CW, and “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” (0.5) on ABC. “The Middle” (1.2) and “Black Lightning” (0.6) each dipped by two tenths.
“Fresh Off the Boat,” “Black-ish,” “LA to Vegas” and “The Mick” all held steady with their last episodes.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
