NBC’s new nighttime drama, THIS IS US, starring soap alum Justin Hartley (ex-Adam, Y&R; ex-Fox, PASSIONS), received the first full order for a freshman series, bringing the total number of season one episodes to 18. The announcement came following the show’s critically acclaimed debut, which proved to be a ratings hit. THIS IS US had set a record earlier this spring when its official trailer collected more than 127 million views online.
