NBC seems to have a huge hit on its hands and it’s for a show that has not even aired yet. The trailer for This Is Us, an upcoming series debuting in the Fall, has racked up over 32 million views on Facebook since its debut just 3 days ago. Previously, the record for the most views amassed for a new series trailer was DC’s Legends of Tomorrow which hit 4.1 million views last year.
This year, the Fox limited series Prison Break revival trailer was a smash hit out of the gate. Within 48 hours the trailer for the six episode limited series picked up 20 million views on Facebook alone. While these are excellent numbers, the show has a built in audience from its four season run on Fox. This Is Us has virtually no big stars (yet), it’s not a reboot or a revival. It’s simply a great looking new show.
The dramedy from Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love) stars Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes), Mandy Moore, Justin Hartley (Smallville), Chrissy Metz (American Horror Story: Freak Show), and Ron Sephas Jones (Mr. Robot).
