Milo Ventimiglia nudity has driven views of the This is Us trailer to near-record heights
The This is Us trailer premiered last week, and, if trailer views amount to anything, then NBC may have a massive hit on its hands. The trailer notched over 17 million views in less than three days on Facebook. In a week on YouTube, there have been over 6 million views. To put it into perspective, the Facebook numbers smash the record set last year for TV trailers by The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow. Only Fox’s Prison Break reboot tops This is Us with 20 million Facebook views. That, though, is largely attributed to the baked-in fan base for the reboot.
Starring Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore, This is Us comes from the team of Dan Fogelman (Tangled, ABC’s Galavant) and the directing team of John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (Crazy, Stupid, Love). The plot is largely unknown at this point with NBC’s description referring to the way the character’s lives “intertwine in curious ways.” Apparently, they have the same birthdays. Like, omg. Megan and Joey should be on this show.
It is set to premiere this fall on NBC.
