‘This Is Us’ Ascends to the Top Spot

‘This Is Us’ (NBC)

After being dethroned for a week by Will & Grace, NBC drama This Is Us climbs back to a familiar spot atop the XFINITY Weekly Top 20 On Demand list. Dan Fogelman’s tearjerker has really hit its stride in Season 2, pulling in a series best 17.8 million overall viewers with L+3 ratings for the premiere. Already renewed for a Season 3, fans can binge and catch up on all past episodes of the Pearsons right here.

Hot Series: Another fan favorite that has made a long-awaited return is Larry David. It’s been a way-too-long six years since we were last treated to HBO’s signature comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm, which details David’s everyday troubles and annoyances (to a hilarious degree). Catch up on all past episodes right here.

This Week’s Premieres:  Black Ink Crew Chicago (VH1 – Wednesday), The Eleven (A&E – Thursday), Superstition (Syfy – Friday), The Walking Dead (AMC – Sunday)
