“This is Us” reigned supreme in the broadcast live +7 ratings, with the largest adults 18-49 gain for the week of March 18.

With seven days of delayed viewing, the NBC drama rose more in the demo than any of the week’s other shows, growing from a 1.7 L+SD rating to a 3.4 (+1.7, +100%). ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” (2.6) and FOX’s “9-1-1” (2.4) tied with the week’s second-biggest demo gain, as both shows grew by 1.2 points.

“This is Us” raked in the week’s largest viewer gain as well, after drawing in an additional 5.21 million (+68%), while CBS’ “Bull” followed behind it with a 4.64 million viewer gain (+72%). Elsewhere, the CW’s “Charmed” (1.22 million) and ABC’s “The Rookie” (8.60 million) were the week’s only shows to double their initial L+SD audiences.

Here are the broadcast Live +7 rankings for March 18-24, 2019. They include only first-run series and specials, not repeats.
