'THIS IS US' OVERTHROWS 'THE BIG BANG THEORY'!


Everybody can’t seem to get enough of NBC’s breakout hit This Is Us. And, apparently, the popularity for the freshman primetime family-drama-soap-opera has made it’s way to the Top 5 in the television ratings game. The February 7th episode of the series entitled I Call Marriage kicked The Big Bang Theory out of its longstanding Nielsen spot.

The Big Bang Theory is CBS’ number one show. It is a sitcom about a group of friends, in which some work in separate scientific fields. The sitcom has been a success since it first went on the air. However, it is probably finding its match in This Is Us. This Is Us has become so succesful that NBC has renewed it for 2 more seasons. Anything beyond that is unknown. However, judging by it success, it seems as though This Is Us will go on for a very long time.

The episode of This Is Us scored 9.35 million in total viewers. After DVR ratings were taken into account, the episode brought in a total of 11.10 million.

This Is Us airs Tuesdays on NBC (check your local listings)

The series stars The Young and the Restless and Passions alum Justin Hartley.
