“This Is Us” returned to NBC Tuesday night — and returned to its usual position as the evening’s top show among adults 18-49.
The series earned a 2.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic, off slightly from its last episode of the fall (2.8) but still well ahead of everything else. NBC led all three hours of primetime, with “Ellen’s Game of Games” scoring a 2.1 and “Chicago Med” a 1.4. They were each down 0.1 vs. last week.
The second episode of “LA to Vegas” flew a bit lower for FOX, coming in at 0.8 (vs. 1.1 for its premiere). “Lethal Weapon” (1.0) and “The Mick” (0.7) each dipped a tenth of a point.
“NCIS,” “Bull” and “NCIS: New Orleans” were all even with last week’s early numbers for CBS (“Bull” adjusted up in the finals). At ABC, “The Middle” (1.3) and “Fresh Off the Boat” (1.0) each fell by 0.2, while “Black-ish” (1.0) came down a tenth and “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” matched last week’s 0.7.

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.
