Are fans tiring of NBC’s “This is Us”?
Last night’s ratings fell 13% from last week to the lowest of the season– 4,997,000. The episode basically tied with a rerun of “FBI” over on CBS.
The soapy hour is a three hanky weeper every week, with someone dying, or babies being born against all odds, and actors wearing bad makeup to look 20 or 30 years older. The only thing that keeps this mortifying experience afloat is actor Sterling K. Brown, who makes the most ridiculous dialogue sound like Shakespeare.
I don’t know the particulars of last night’s cryathon but I think three babies were born and Griffin Dunne was made to look like Methuselah. And it was February sweeps. Maybe the numbers will come back in delayed viewing.
And yes, Jack is still dead. I think NBC owes Milo Ventimiglia a series of his own.
