The Live +3 ratings for the week of Nov. 27 tell a pretty familiar story.

NBC’s two primetime NFL games remain first and second in adults 18-49. “This Is Us” (+1.5 vs. its same-day rating), “The Good Doctor” (+1.3) and “The Big Bang Theory” (+1.3) made the biggest gains with three days of delayed viewing. All three were among the top 5 scripted shows in the same-day numbers.

“Big Bang,” “This Is Us” and “The Good Doctor” also had three of the four largest total-viewer gains in the Live +3 charts (“Blue Bloods” was the fourth).
