This Is Us Starring Justin Hartley Receives Full Season Order By NBC!

Courtesy/NBC

NBC’s freshmen series, This Is Us, which stars former Y&R star Justin Hartley (Ex-Adan Newman) scored a full-season order of 18 episodes, after only one episode aired of the dramedy, with the second installment airing tonight.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, This Is Us from creator Dan Fogelman received an additional five episode order bringing it to 18.  In  a statement, Fogelman expressed: “We are thrilled. This order for a complete first season of 18 episodes is exactly what we’d wanted and hoped for. We’d carefully mapped out an 18-chapter story for the first year of the show, and this allows us to follow through with our exact initial intent. And to get the order so early on is a tremendous show of confidence and a boost for our entire cast and crew. I’m starting to sound like a broken record but I have to thank Dana, Gary, Jonnie, Howard and my amazing partners at 20th as well as Bob and Jen and the fine folks at NBC for continuing to do absolutely everything right by me and this show. I’d gush more but I have to go back to work.”

NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke added:“It’s a rare moment in this business when a show so instantly delivers both critical acclaim and hit ratings, but This Is Us is just such an extraordinary achievement. Creator Dan Fogelman, along with co-directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa and the gifted producers, cast and crew, has delivered the kind of heart and depth that resonates with every segment of the audience, and we’re proud to extend its presence on our schedule.”

The series, which also stars Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore. Chrissy Metz, and Emmy winner Sterling K. Brown, stands as the No. 1 new show of the fall (so far) with a 4.5 rating among adults under 50 and 14.3 million viewers when factoring in five days of DVR. That’s up 1.7 ratings points from its live debut and NBC’s highest-rated scripted program in the Tuesdays at 10 p.m. slot in six years.

So, what do you think about the success of This Is Us? Looks like Justin Hartley has found himself on a hit primetime show!  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Great for Justin, bad for Y&R BUT they have weathered plenty of storms throughout its existence and they will continue to be #1. Especially when ABC is #3 and rehires all THREE of its problems! Sorry, had to get that swipe in! But anyway, Justin’s show, I’m out, too much bouncing around for me after a hard day at the office! The acting is great and it will probably be around for a couple years. One thing I cannot shake, when Justin is acting I still see Adam. I know its because he is fresh off Y&R but it still… Read more »

Well I wanted to hate it, but it is a good show— character centered, but moves along nicely so I am not bored. It is a unique premise– the twist from the pilot, not finding out until the end these were not four separate stories, but one story about one family, was genius— so as much as I wanted it to flop so JH could return to Y&R– I think this show has at least another season in it and I look forward to seeing how the rest of this season unravels—good for JH, this will move him up the… Read more »

It’s a great uplifting story/series–so glad it was picked up. And what a great break for Justin!
It’s rare to see anything with some “humanness” in it–not just zombies, superheroes, time travel, and “how to commit MMMMMMurrrrrder. LOL

I’ve watched both episodes and it is really a good show. I have it on auto-tune so I don’t miss any episodes.

Justin Hartley is done with Y&R. Get over it and move on, he certainly has.

Good grief. I think that reply was uncalled for.

What’s wrong with saying I miss him on Y&R?

Beautifully written, loved the symmetry of the triplets and the fire station drop off. Justin is pure tragicomic gold in this series–love his relationship with his sister Kate. I knew Justin was talented but I had no idea he was THIS talented. “This is Us” is word play because on one hand it implies an introduction to the characters, but on the other hand it also includes the audience. This is ALL of us in one form or another. Who cannot relate to having regrets or wondering how we got here and recognizing the disparity which exists between where we… Read more »

Harry, did you watch REVENGE? Justin played a gay character with mommy issues…he was fantastic in that role!

Thanks, Soapie Queen. No, Bec, I did not watch Revenge. Excuse all the mistakes on my post above–tenses are all messed up.
Love “This is Us”! And I certainly did not expect to love it. ABC seems to be making a comeback which is great news.

Harry…your comment was extremely well expressed. If you’re like me you just free associate here…I don’t map out my words…I just convey my opinions/thoughts. I hate the grammar/spelling poleece, polise…I mean police. 😉

The show is very well done. The twist to the first episode…the way they play with time periods…is genius and opens the door to multiple stories of one family, different generations at different stages of their lives. The second episode ending…wow! And yet…I’m not hooked. I just haven’t taken to the characters yet. I’m gong to have in there because of the quality premise as well as Justin and Milo, two actors who always seem to be involved with good prime time projects.

I got bored. It just didn’t do it for me. After this season will there be more of the same? If so then it will have a short run. It’s not like that show “Thirty Something”.

I am not familiar with Justin Hartley’s work. I don’t watch Y&R, but I think I may love This Is Us. So far, so good and I don’t watch a lot of TV so am selective about what I do watch. I will definitely tune in for the 3rd ep when it airs.

Cameron Mathison Shares He Will Make Summer Debut On GH and Says: “Incredibly Grateful to Frank Valentini and the Writers at GH for Including Me on Such an Iconic Show”

Longtime All My Children favorite and current co-host of Hallmark’s Home & Family, Cameron Mathison, took to his Instagram account on Friday to share his enthusiasm and excitement for what’s to come this summer when he joins ABC’s General Hospital.

No word yet as to what role Mathison will play – and whether it will indeed be Pine Valley’s Ryan Lavery, a new character, or a recast character from the past such as how Kim Delaney took over the role of Jackie Templeton, who has not been seen on the canvas for decades since Demi Moore made that role soap-famous.

In his post today, Cameron expressed thanks to GH EP Frank Valentini and the writing team,  noting: “Almost 10 years after All My Children went off the air I am so excited to be joining General Hospital this summer! I was a member of the abc family for over 15 years and soon I’ll be back: Incredibly grateful to Frank Valentini and the writers at GH for including me on such an iconic show I feel like a kid on Christmas, as I’ll also continue making Hallmark movies and continue to be part of that family as well😀🙏🏼 So so excited… thank you!!!! (More details to come😉)”

So, who do you think Cameron will play once he hits Port Charles?  Let us know and make sure to take our poll below on how you want Mathison to be integrated into the story as Ryan, a new character or a recast character blast from the past? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Karla Mosley Temporarily Replaces Mishael Morgan on The Young and the Restless

Soap favorite Karla Mosley (Ex-Maya, B&B and Christina, GL) has stepped in for Mishael Morgan and will air on upcoming episodes of The Young and the Restless in the role of Amanda Sinclair.

As has been previously reported and brought to light by Morgan herself, she recently suffered an eye injury and had to undergo surgery.

In a joint statement, Y&R’s EP’s Anthony Morina and EP and co-head writer, Josh Griffith said of the temporary swap:  “We’re grateful that Karla Mosley, a seasoned actor and consummate professional, was able to step in to the role of Amanda during Mishael Morgan’s temporary absence. Mishael is a valuable member of the Y&R family and will be back on air soon to continue her journey as Amanda.”

Mosley spoke exclusively with Soap Opera Digest where she shared she spoke to Morgan before taking on the role: “It was great that I could talk with her and say thank you for leaving me such a wonderful path to follow. I also told her, ‘I’ll be happy when you’re healed and able to return.’”

In return, Mishael took to Twitter and said of Karla: “I am so grateful this beautiful and talented woman stepped in for me on such short notice and allowed me time to heal. I can’t wait to be back, but It comforts me to know that Amanda is in such great hands.”

Look for Karla to hit Genoa City on the upcoming April 26th episode of the CBS daytime drama series.
