NBC’s ‘Manifest’ Has TV’s Biggest Time-Shifted Series Premiere Ever (Unless You Count New ‘Roseanne’)

  • The Wrap
NBC’s “Manifest” has set new records with the all-time biggest two-day lift for a series premiere in the network’s measurement history, in both the all-important adults 18-49 range and total viewers, according to Nielsen data dating back to May 2007.

The “Manifest” premiere scored a 2.16 rating in the key demo in live-plus-same-day Nielsen numbers, shifting to a 3.44 in live-plus-two-day data. The episode put up 10.404 million viewers in L+Sd and lifted to 15.304 million in L+2.
