'Under the Dome' ratings big for summer
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.

Under the Dome is based on the Stephen King novel and was originally developed for CBS’ corporate cousin Showtime. The ratings make you wonder: Should CBS have aired Dome during the regular season?
