Same-day ratings for the week of Feb. 26 were down a bit across the board: It was the first week of full regular programming across the broadcast networks after the Winter Olympics, and viewers seemed a bit slow getting back to their regular habits.

They made up for it some, however, in the first three days of delayed viewing. Six shows grew by at least a full ratings point in adults 18-49, the most since week 7 of the season. “This Is Us” had the biggest bump of 1.5 points (2.5 to 4.0).

“The Good Doctor,” per usual, had the largest total-viewer boost (5.2 million) and doubled its 18-49 rating. Outside the top 25, three other ABC shows — “Designated Survivor,” “Agents of SHIELD” and “Once Upon a Time” — also at least doubled their 18-49 numbers.
