The family drama on This Is Us continued to draw audiences on Tuesday night with the penultimate episode to next week's season finale — where Randall (Sterling K. Brown) thought about how life would be different if his father (Milo Ventimiglia) hadn't died in a fire when he was a teenager.

The NBC series landed at #1 with the 18-49 demographic, while its time slot lead-in, Ellen's Game of Gamescame in second with a 1.3 rating.

On the total viewer front, a repeat airing of NCIS still managed to win the night with 7.45 million viewers. FBI, also a rerun, came in second, just barely edging out This Is Us.
