The second episode of This Is Us airs on NBC on September 27. After a heavy marketing campaign and getting The Voice as a lead-in, the show earned the best rating in the 18-49 demographic with a 2.8 and 10 million viewers. The show, created by Crazy Stupid Love writer Dan Fogelman, also had a surprising twist at the end of the pilot, so SPOILERS will follow. If you don't want to know how the pilot ended before you watch it, it is available at NBC.com.
Prior to the pilot airing, This Is Us was billed as a dramedy about four groups of strangers who had a mysterious link. At the end of the episode, it was revealed and we learned that the story of one of those couples is really taking place in the past.
