The Big Three is getting in on the SuperBowl action next year.
NBC announced that This Is Us will air a special episode following Super Bowl 52, on Sunday, Feb. 4th, 2018.
The series will return this fall with new episodes but the move was careful crafted to draw in even more eyeballs.
Not that it needs it – after its breakout last September, it garners a total of 10.1 million viewers weekly.
Still, a huge Super Bowl lead in almost assures that a few more thousand eyeballs will stick around and get hooked.
Plus, Randall, Kate and Kevin were huge football fans like their late father so the tie-in works in their favor.
The only thing that would make it better is if the Pearson’s team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, would be participating in the big game.
