THE WRAP: Super Bowl LII may have been down from last year, but its lead-out program was way, way up.
With a 16.2 rating in metered-market households, This Is Us scored the highest post-Super Bowl TV rating in six years, per early Nielsen numbers. The special Sunday episode’s numbers were 59 percent higher than last year’s premiere of 24: Legacy.
The last post-Super Bowl telecast to grab a better rating was NBC’s The Voice in 2012, which scored a 20.0 in the metered markets.
The number is not just a record for the special time slot (This Is Us ran from 10:45 -11:49 p.m.), but the NBC family drama itself, which rose 80 percent over the show’s previous record of a 9.0 rating for the Season 1 finale last March. The special installment also jumped 128 percent over This Is Us Season 2 average (7.1).
Following the dramatic episode, the cast appeared on a post-Super Bowl edition of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which posted a 5.7 rating in metered-market households from 12:24-1:35 a.m. ET. Sunday’s show was the third highest-rated telecast for the Fallon-led late-night program and moved ahead of its last post-Super Bowl installment in 2015 (5.5 rating).
