According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, the episode drew a 2.8 adults 18-49 rating and 10.93 million total viewers. The numbers best the 2.7 rating and 10.53 million viewer mark drawn last week.

They also top the 1.9 rating and 10.10 million viewer sum posted by Tuesday’s “The Voice” lead-in. While “This Is Us” has been regularly outdrawing “The Voice” in adults 18-49, this was the first time it built on a new “Voice” in total viewers.
