After the delayed viewing fireworks for the Monday series where two shows, NBC’s Manifest and ABC’s The Good Doctor, added more than 5 million viewers to their premiere tallies in three days of playback, we have a more run-of-the-mill Live+3 results for Premiere Tuesday.

The Season 3 premiere of NBC’s This Is Us led the pack with the largest absolute L+3 lifts: +1.28 rating points in 18-49 (3.0 to 4.3) and +4.0 million viewers overall (10.6 million to 14.6 million). The family drama widened its lead over CBS’ The Big Bang Theory (3.7 18-49 rating in L+3) for the No.1 non-sports program of the week honors in adults 18-49. (Long-time leader BBT is in a tight race for No.2 in the demo and No. 1 in total viewers with NBC’s hot newcomer Manifest, which gained on the veteran in L+3 – 3.6 vs. 3.7 in 18-48 and 16.1 vs. 16. 8 million viewers)

The third season opener of Fox’s revamped Lethal Weapon, which introduced new co-lead, Seann Willian Scott, posted the highest percentage gains on Tuesday, +59% in 18-49 (0.8 to 1.3) and 63% in total viewers (3.4 million to 5.6 million).

This is believed to be a series high demo % L3 lift for Lethal Weapon whose Season 3 premiere is now running ahead of the Season 2 finale by +8% in 18-49.

In absolute gains, This Is Us was followed by its lead-out, freshman NBC drama New Amsterdam, which added +0.84 18-49 rating points (1.8 to 2.7) and almost as many viewers as This Is Us, 3.9 million (8.4 million to 12.3 million).

Here are the L+3 gains for all Tuesday series on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox.
