Post-Super Bowl ‘This Is Us’ gets even bigger in week 19 broadcast Live +3 ratings

The episode of “This Is Us” that aired after Super Bowl LII added substantially to its series-best numbers with a few days of catchup viewing.

The show added two full points to its adults 18-49 rating, growing from 9.3 to 11.3. That’s a slightly bigger gain than the last episode, which had a then-series record growth of 1.9 points.

“This Is Us” also added 5.72 million viewers, bringing its three-day total to just above 32.7 million.

The Super Bowl itself rose by 520,000 viewers. This is just a guess, but it seems likely a good portion of that number were Eagles fans who celebrated the game elsewhere watched a recording at home.
