For the last time in 2017-18, “This Is Us” got the biggest seven-day boost to its adults 18-49 rating.

The season finale of the NBC drama grew by 2.1 ratings points in the 18-49 demographic (2.8 to 4.9). That’s 0.6 better than the two shows that tied for second, “Grey’s Anatomy” and “The Good Doctor.”

In total viewers, “The Good Doctor” (+6.23 million) narrowly beat “This Is Us” (+6.13 million) for the biggest boost. “Jane the Virgin” and “Designated Survivor” were the percentage-gain leaders.

Here are the broadcast Live +7 rankings for the week of March 12-18. They include only first-run series and specials, not repeats.
