NBC Orders Full Season of This Is Us

Get ready to buy those tissues in bulk, because NBC just ordered a full season of This Is Us, EW reports. By ordering an additional five episodes, this will bring the full season order to 18 episodes. If you haven’t gotten a chance to watch yet, it follows new parents Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia and several other characters who are connected by sharing the same birthday. The pickup impressively came after only one episode, but the series premiere alone brought in ten million viewers, and averaged a 2.8 rating among adults under 50, the demo group most coveted by advertisers. So, maybe it’s not all bad for network TV, after all. Watch the trailer below.
