After falling to a series low last week, NBC’s flagship drama “This Is Us” posted live+same-day ratings gains this week.

It, moreover, retained its Tuesday night crown among young adult viewers.

According to fast national data shared by NBC, Tuesday’s “This Is Us” drew a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 7.56 million overall viewers.

The numbers narrowly top last week’s 1.7 rating and 7.40 million viewer mark, which represented series lows.

Tuesday’s “This Is Us,” as noted, ranked as Tuesday’s #1 program in adults 18-49. It trailed the older-skewing “NCIS” and “FBI” for third-place in overall viewership.

The episode notably focused on Beth Pearson’s upbringing and family life. It was the first Beth-centric episode to-date.

NBC’s Tuesday also included “Ellen’s Game Of Games” (1.4, 6.09 million at 8PM) and “New Amsterdam” (1.0, 5.61 million at 10PM). Each of those shows also won its timeslot in adults 18-49.
