No, Miguel isn’t at fault this time! This Is Us fans are fuming that the show’s first season finale has been pushed back a week because of a scheduled primetime address by President Donald Trump.
NBC announced the delay on Wednesday, February 8. The episode, titled “Trial & Error,” is now rescheduled for Tuesday, March 14.
POTUS, 70, will make his first speech before the joint session of Congress on February 28, and it is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. ET. Other networks, including ABC, CBS and FOX, have also shuffled their usual programming to air the address.
Viewers of the NBC hit, which was recently renewed for two more seasons, were not pleased with the change.
“Wowwwww Trump pushed the season finale of This Is Us back one week … this guy,” one person tweeted on Wednesday. A second commenter joked: “Trump speech to push back #ThisIsUs finale? He’s finally gone too far.”
One fan of the Pearson family shared a sad emoji face. “Trump ruining TV for us too #ThisIsUs,” they wrote.

Trump coverage has delayed #ThisIsUs leaving us so you can’t say nothing good has come from him.
