Chrissy's mystery boyfriend is far from the only This Is Us fan. The multi-generational TV drama has been a huge success for NBC's fall lineup.

Unfortunately fans will have to wait a bit for more of the critically acclaimed show. The Critics' Choice Award nominated series is currently taking a mid-season break.

This Is Us will return to NBC January 10.
