From NBC:
The “Manifest” debut has increased by +7.99 million viewers going from L+SD to L+7 (from 10.4 million persons to 18.4 million) and +93% in adult 18-49 rating (2.16 to 4.17), generating the #2 biggest L+7 increase in total viewers in measurement history, behind only the +8.8 million for the March 27, 2018 revival debut of ABC’s “Roseanne.” The prior #2 biggest lift had been the +7.9 million for the Sept. 25, 2017 premiere of “The Good Doctor.”
The L+7 viewership of 18.4 million makes “Manifest” NBC’s most-watched drama series premiere in 19 years, since “Third Watch” debuted with 20.6 million viewers on Sept. 23, 1999 (predating Nielsen’s tracking of DVR time-shifting).
