A pair of medical dramas reigned supreme in viewer gains, in the broadcast live +3 ratings for the week of March 11.

ABC’s “The Good Doctor” scored the week’s largest bump in total viewers, growing by 4.44 million (+57%) after three days of delayed viewing. Meanwhile, NBC’s “New Amsterdam” placed second with a 9.97 million viewer audience, up 3.98 million (+66%) from its initial L+SD audience.

However, it was “This is Us” that took the week’s no. 1 spot in the adults 18-49 demo, as the NBC drama was not only the week’s highest-rated show with a 3.0 L+3 rating, but also posted the week’s largest 18-49 gain (+1.2, +67%). “The Good Doctor” and “Grey’s Anatomy” tied for the week’s second-largest gain, as both grew 1.0 point from their initial ratings.
