Delayed Viewing Ratings: ‘This Is Us’ Dominates ‘Good Doctor’-Less Week 7

This Is Us” handily won both key measures in the Nielsen Live+7 ratings for week 7 of the 2017-2018 broadcast season, which began on Nov. 6.

The much-beloved NBC series typically faces stiff competition from ABC’s freshman hit “The Good Doctor” in both measures, but the latter show was preempted in week 7 by the ABC News special “Living Every Day: Luke Bryan.” As such, “This Is Us” out-gained its nearest competition–CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory”–by approximately 36 percent in the key demo and 28 percent in total viewers. “This Is Us” went from a 2.5 to a 4.8 for a 92 percent gain in the measure. In total viewers, “This Is Us” went from 9.88 million viewers to 16.16 million viewers for a 64 percent increase.
