This Is Us

Viewers will have the chance to binge-watch the biggest hit of the fall season, This Is Us, when all 10 episodes of NBC's breakout drama air on sister cable network USA Network. The catch-up marathon kicks off at 1 p.m. ET/PT on Saturday Jan. 7 with the pilot episode airing simultaneously on NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment's USA, Bravo and E! networks. All episodes will then continue on USA Network through 11 p.m. New episodes of This Is Us return to NBC on Tuesday, Jan. 10. The series stars Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Chris Sullivan, Susan Kelechi Watson and Ron Cephas Jones. In the series, it is a refreshingly honest and provocative series that follows a unique ensemble whose paths cross and their life stories intertwine in curious ways. We find several of them share the same birthday, and so much more than anyone would expect.
