This Is Us scores TV's biggest post-Super Bowl rating in 6 years

The Super Bowl itself might have been relatively disappointing in the ratings. But NBC’s special episode of This Is Us definitely scored in the Nielsens.

Early numbers mark the weepy NBC drama as the most-watched post-Super Bowl entertainment telecast in six years — and that’s despite the big game delivering its lowest rating in eight years.

The overnights (a 16.2 rating in the metered-market households) were up 59 percent from last year’s disappointing premiere of Fox’s 24: Legacy.

And naturally, this marks an all-time high for This Is Us as well. The full audience number is still to come later today.

For more, EW has some exclusive This Is Us coverage for you: Here’s Milo Ventimiglia interviewed about this pivotal episode for Jack.
