This is Us has been successful in captivating the hearts of the audience. However, fans will need to wait longer to see the first season finale. This is Us finale was originally supposed to air on March 7 but it has been delayed by a week.
This is Us finale is going to air later because of a joint session of Congress by new president Donald Trump. The session address will be telecast on ABC on March 7. Many who already hold some angst against Donald Trump have one more reason to be angry now.
This Is Us Finale Delayed By A Week
This is Us finale will now be on TV on March 14. Another NBC show will be delayed due to the President’s address. Trial & Error will make up for the lost episode by airing two episodes on March 14, reports Variety. An online comment by a fan reads, “I watch this heartwarming show as a brief escape from our current political situation, which I can find (and do find) covered on the multiple news networks and outlets available. Please stop moving around the things we actually look forward to as bright lights in the world.”
Actor Milo Ventimiglia spoke about an explosive finale coming up. Mandy Moore set off thousands of speculations when she posted a farewell photo on Instagram. Some fans sensed that it looks like a set up for the funeral. As speculations went on dangerously further, she put out an update saying that it was not a funeral. Moore clarified saying, “The photo is dark. No one is in black actually. Everyone breathe. We’re at Kevin’s play. Hence the hashtag.”
This Is Us Ratings Soars Ahead Of The Finale
This is Us boasts of 9.6 million total viewers in the USA. It registered a very strong rating stand along with another popular show NCIS. Other leading shows like NCIS New Orleans, Bull, The O’Reilly Factor are also posting strong ratings and good viewership. In the 18-49 age bracket, This is Us, took the lead.
