ABC and NBC continued to rake in some of the biggest gains in the broadcast Live +7 ratings, this time for the week of March 4.

“This is Us” grew more in the adults 18-49 demo than any of the week’s other broadcast shows, rising from its initial 1.7 L+SD rating to a 3.5 (+1.8, +106%), after seven days of delayed viewing. CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” came second in the demo, growing by 1.5 points (+71%), while ABC’s “The Good Doctor” (+1.3, +118%) came third.

Once again, “The Good Doctor” scored the week’s biggest boost in total viewers as well, after raking in an additional 5.74 million (+85%). With a growth of 5.66 million viewers (+72%) too, “This is Us” posted the week’s second-largest gain in the measure.

Here are the broadcast Live +7 rankings for March 4-10, 2019. They include only first-run series and specials, not repeats.
