Did This Is Us Make You Cry? Seriously?!Rich Juzwiak9/21/16 12:10am3819EditPromoteGo to permalink I was promised tears, but the pilot of NBC’s much-hyped This Is Us left me dry. “Must-Weep TV,” said The Atlantic. “This Is Us will give you something to cry about,” said Salon. “Watching This Is Us is like getting beaten up with a pillow soaked in tears,” said The New York Times. Bullshit, I say.
