“We have a winner Johnny!” NBC’s This Is Us has been renewed for not one but TWO seasons. Original episodes have averaged a 4.6 rating in the key 18-49 demographic and 14.6 million viewers, after 7 days of delayed viewing is accounted for, according to numbers from Nielsen via NBC.
Two-season renewals aren’t especially rare in the cable world, but among broadcast networks, it’s a distinction often saved for the biggest hits. Fox has in the past renewed shows like “The Simpsons” and “Glee” for two seasons. NBC renewed “The Voice” for two seasons back in October 2016. Great Job!
