The premiere episode pulled in a 3.2 rating/9 share and a whopping 13.1 million total viewers for the network. That makes it the most watched summer debut for a series since 2007’s "The Singing Bee", and CBS’ most watched summer debut since 2000's "Big Brother".
It's also the best opening-night demo score for any drama series since the premiere of "Revolution" last fall on NBC.
It's especially impressive after various other network Summer-launched series like ABC's "Motive" and "Mistresses" along with USA's "Graceland" fizzled on launch.

CBS’ TV series adaptation of the Stephen King novel Under the Dome scored some impressive ratings for its series debut last night (read Allison's recap here).

Vaughan spearheading the ship alongside showrunner Neal Baer, which bodes well for the future of the series. We’ll see how much of the first-look audience is retained for the show’s second episode next week, »

A welcome surprise during broadcast’s usually dry summer months: CBS’ Under the Dome just debuted to a whopping 13.1 million viewers and 3.2 rating among adults 18-49 last night.
That’s the most-watched summer debut on any network since NBC’s The Singing Bee in 2007. It’s also very competitive with last season’s crop of dramas, matching Fox’s The Following as the second-highest new drama debut (NBC’s Revolution was #1).

The latest episode of Glee made me realize something about myself: I can’t let go of certain things. And by things, I mean my hatred of everything ‘N Sync-related.
As a child of the ’90′s (literally, I was born in 1990), I felt forced, at a very young age, to pick a side: Backstreet Boys or ‘N Sync. I immediately gravitated toward the pitch-perfect harmonies of Bsb as opposed to the Justin Timberlake-jc Chasez duets that featured three other dancing guys. It might seem harsh, but any child of the ’90′s knows that this rivalry was real and cutthroat. »

Everyone knows Joey Fatone is a multi-talented dude. From holding down one fifth of the legendary boy band 'N Sync to starring in "Little Shop of Horrors" on Broadway ... from hosting red carpets and shows like "The Singing Bee" to nearly dancing away with the mirror ball trophy on "Dancing With the Stars" ... as far as performing goes, this guy can do it all. But did you know he can cook too?
Joey gets to put his chef hat on as host of "My Family Recipe Rocks!" for the Live Well Network. This Sunday (March 3), Fatone travels to Dallas, Tex. to meet some tough dudes from the non-profit group, Real Men Cook.
In the video clip above, only on Zap2it, Joey and his new buds have a little fun with a turkey. When one of the Texas chefs asks if anyone needs a botox, Joey pipes up. "You could »
ABC Family is ready to get into the reality-show game. On Wednesday (Feb. 13), network president Michael Riley announced the pick-up of two new reality series, "Dancing Fools" and "The Vineyard." Both series will go into production this spring and will air during the summer of 2013.
"Dancing Fools," hosted by Melissa Peterman ("Baby Daddy," "Bet on Your Baby"), is a half-hour, unscripted comedy. ABC Family didn't announce any other details, but we can guess that this probably involves a dance competition of some sort.
"The Vineyard" is described as a "dramatic coming-of-age docu-soap." The program will follow a group of 20-somethings working on Martha's Vineyard for the summer. Mischief and romance are expected when the group shares a house and the youths work and play together. It might be something like "Jersey Shore" in this way, only colder and less orange. »
ABC Family is adding two new reality shows, Dancing Fools and The Vineyard, to the schedule.

Production begins in the spring. Dancing Fools is created and executive produced by Phil Gurin (The Singing Bee, Oh Sit!) and produced by the Gurin Co.

ABC Family has ordered two reality series: Dancing Fools, which will be hosted by Melissa Peterman, star of the network’s hit comedy series Baby Daddy, and docu-soap The Vineyard (working title). Production on both series will begin this spring. ABC Family’s most recent unscripted effort, series Beverly Hills Nannies, aired last summer. It did not go to a second season. Dancing Fools is a half-hour unscripted comedy created and executive produced by Phil Gurin (The Singing Bee, Oh Sit) and produced by the Gurin Co. ABC Family is keeping details about the premise under wraps, but judging by Gurin’s track record of turning karaoke and musical chairs into reality series, this may again be a take on a party game. In addition to Dancing Fools, Peterman also is hosting the upcoming ABC reality series Bet On Your Baby. The Vineyard is a dramatic coming-of-age docu-soap, which follows »
