Ratings: Under the Dome Dips Again, Siberia Cools, Bear Grylls Makes Small Roar

Ratings Bear Grylls PremiereUnder the Dome once again dome-inated the Monday ratings, even while sustaining a second week of declines.

CBS’ summertime surprise drew 10.6 million total viewers while scoring a 2.7 demo rating — again besting its broadcast competitors combined, yet down 10 percent and two tenths week-to-week and now off some 20 percent from its boffo debut.

Opening NBC’s night, American Ninja Warrior (5 mil/1.6) ticked down a tenth from its season opener. Come 9 pm, the premiere of Get Out Alive With Bear Grylls retained 4.2 mil/1.4.

ABC’s Bachelorette inched up 8 percent and a tenth to a season-high audience of 6.8 mil with a 1.9 rating. (BTW, I caught about 30 minutes of this last night. Do people really get pulled in by all that artifice? My kingdom for a genuine moment!)

  1. What about #MajorCrimes ratings?It was a great ep!!

  2. dude says:

    It’ll probably keep dropping because it really hasn’t achieved the entertainment of the pilot in the subsequent episodes but with those ratings it will certainly be renewed.

    I didn’t think Under The Dome was going to hold my interest, but it has so far. These are great numbers for a summer series, so it appears we’ll see it back next summer. I wonder how far this will veer from the book, specifically whether some of those who died in the book will survive in the series. It worked for The Walking Dead to keep Shane alive longer than expected. I’m looking forward to seeing how things work out by the end of this first season.

    I watched King & Maxwell instead, love the chemistry between those two actors.

    I guess many people lost interest in “Under the Dome” since the first episode due to negative feelings about the quality of the series. I lost interest for the same reason after seeing the last few moments of the second episode on local television and the entire first episode through Comcast’s Xfinity on Demand service.

  6. Steven says:

    Still amazing ratings for Under The Dome considering it’s a Summer series on network TV, but the show needs to improve if it’s going to hold my interest. Start by killing Junior and giving Angie more to do.

  7. Craig Hanenberg says:

    As fake as they come… Writers and directors, well everyone should have tried to put together a more believeable show… Insult to our intelligence..

  8. Mensa Graham says:

    No one has bothered being concerned about food yet even though they know there is not in/out through the dome. Same for fuel.

    • Len says:

      Guess you missed the chocolate bar reference. At least on Emerson has commented and shown concern and understanding of the isolation consequences.

      Let’s be realistic. There’s 41 minutes. People sitting around talking about lack of potential food if this goes on, is going to hold even less interest for viewers than the show does for some now,

      I’m sure that it will have an episode devoted to the issue,

      This isn’t real life you know, but an entertaining fork of fiction.
