TV Ratings Report: This Is Us Hits Series High

at . Comments

This Is Us returned for Season 2 last night, and it's clear fans were eager to find out what happened to the Pearson family in the aftermath of the emotional This Is Us Season 1 finale. 

The episode managed 12.6 million viewers and a 3.8 rating among adults 18-49. This is a new record in the demo, but just shy of a record total viewer tally. 

Law & Order: True Crime debuted afterward with 6.2 million viewers and a 1.7 rating. This is a disappointing result considering the huge lead-in, but will it stabilize here?

Before those two shows, The Voice interested 10.6 million viewers and had a 2.6 rating.

Bull was way down from last years' premiere with 9.9 million viewers and a 1.2 rating. NCIS: New Orleans closed the night out for the eye network with 8.7 million viewers and a 1.0 rating. 

Over on Fox, Lethal Weapon slipped to a new low in total viewers, while it matched a low in 18-49. It managed 4.3 million viewers and a 1.2 rating.
