at .  Updated at .

The TV networks are continuing to reap the rewards of more people watching the small screen during these uncertain times. 

This Is Us Season 4 Episode 18 hit best since premiere results, surging to 7.9 million viewers and a 1.7 rating. 

The demo tally is up three-tenths week-to-week, while the total viewer tally is up around 800,000. 

Hanging With Deja - This Is Us Season 4 Episode 18

This is a decent result for the series, which has already been renewed for Seasons 5 and 6. 

Council of Dads launched out of This Is Us with a paltry 3.9 million viewers and a 0.7 rating. 

The demo tally is very concerning when you consider the lead-in and the fact the series is set to take over the This Is Us slot.

Ellen's Game of Games started things off for NBC with 6.3 million viewers and a 1.4 rating.

FBI (10.8 million viewers/1.1 rating) was at season highs in total viewers and the demo, while FBI: Most Wanted (9.5 million/1.0 rating) was at series highs. 

Over on ABC, The Conners (6.4 million/1.1 rating), Bless This Mess (4.1 million/0.7 rating), black-ish (2.6 million/0.6 rating), mixed-ish (3 million/0.6 rating) and For Life (2.4 million/0.6 rating)  were all on par with recent results.
