This Is Us

NBC will air a special episode of the much-beloved drama following the Super Bowl on Sunday night, sometime around 10 p.m.

Crock-Pot crack pots: In the last episode, we learned that the horrific fire at the Pearson house was caused by a faulty slow cooker, on a Super Bowl Sunday no less. It also ignited a chain reaction of Crock-Pot concerns, which in turn led to headlines like this: “Crock-Pot tells ‘This Is Us’ fans: Our slow cookers won’t kill you.”

Kleenex time: Presumably, and you never know with this show, viewers will finally learn how family patriarch Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) dies. In the two seasons of the era-hopping series, we knew he had passed away some 20 years ago, but not how it happened.

DVR strategy: For years, networks have featured top-rated shows, or new ones, in the post-Super Bowl time slot when hundreds of millions are watching TV. Fans will need to set their DVRs accordingly, as end times for the big game (overtime? extensive replay reviews? power outages?) and postgame coverage can by iffy.
