Live+7 Ratings for Week of Oct. 26: ‘This Is Us’ Premiere Grows 86% to Top Delayed Charts

“This Is Us” returned for season 5 on Oct. 27, and also returned to its usual place at the top of the delayed ratings charts.

The NBC drama grew its premiere by 86% after seven days of delayed viewing, jumping from a 1.4 rating in Live+Same Day to a 2.6 rating in Live+7. Not only did that give it the overall win in the 18-49 demographic for that week, but it also made it the largest grower by a 0.5 ratings point.

As has been the case for the past couple broadcast seasons, Fox’s “The Masked Singer” was the closest competition, growing its episode that week by 44% to a 2.3 rating. “The Simpsons” ended in third place for the week with a 2.0 rating, closely followed by ABC’s “The Bachelorette” with a 1.9.

On the total viewership front, “This Is Us” added over 4 million viewers to end up with 11.4 million in L+7. NBC’s “The Voice” came second with 9.2 million, followed by “Masked Singer” with 8.3 million. The Fox singing show and “The Conners” was the only two other programs to add more than 2 million viewers in delayed.
