Ratings for the Feb. 14 episode of “This Is Us” were down a little bit the night it aired vs. its previous outing, and that remained the case with a few days of catch-up viewing. But it did take over the No. 1 spot on broadcast TV among adults 18-49 for the week of Feb. 13-19.

The NBC series gained 1.8 points in adults 18-49 with three days of DVR and on-demand viewing, rising from 2.4 to 4.2 — off a little from 4.5 in Live +3 for its Feb. 7 episode. “This Is Us” passed “The Big Bang Theory” (3.9, up 1.1) to rank first in adults 18-49.

CBS dominated the Top 10 among viewers, claiming eight spots. “NCIS” led the way with 18.27 million people watching within three days of air.
