This is Us” has wholly dominated Tuesday night ratings since its debut last year. The show’s cast, which includes Susan Kelechi Watson, has been lauded for consistently compelling performances. Watson plays Beth, the wife of Sterling K. Brown, who won the Primetime Emmy for the leading drama actor in “This is Us.” Praise for her understated, yet reliable performance has continued to grow.



Maggie Fremont of Vulture.com referred to Watson as “the real MVP of the show’s present-day timeline.” She describes Watson’s character Beth as, “one half of one of TV’s best marriages, but she can also stand on her own. She is loving, loyal, self-assured, smart, gorgeous, and she’s even got some jokes.” The Brooklyn native, who is a graduate of Howard University, has starred in NBC’s “The Blacklist” and “The Following” on Fox. Sharp-eyed viewers will remember Watson as, Janet, Louis C.K.’s ex-wife on his eponymous Netflix series.



Today, Susan Kelechi Watson sits down with the ladies from “The Talk” to “discuss current events, pop culture, contemporary issues, and family.” (“The Talk,” CBS, Friday, October 20th, 2pm ET 1pm PT/CT)
