Additionally, the "Manifest" premiere ranks #4 all-time for biggest L+2 lift among all telecasts on broadcast and cable, behind only the "Roseanne" debut, the post-Super Bowl episode of "This Is Us" (+5.129 million) and the Jan. 27, 2014 telecast of "The Blacklist" (+4.977 million).

The previous biggest L+2 lift for an NBC series debut in 18-49 was for the "Will & Grace" revival in 2017 in 18-49 (+1.24) and in total viewers it was "Blindspot's" premiere in 2015 (+3.930 million persons).

Tuesday's debut of "New Amsterdam" ranks as NBC's #4 most time-shifted series launch on record in "live plus one day" total-viewer Nielsens.
