RATINGS RAT RACE UPDATE: ‘Under The Dome’ Dominates Monday Despite Distribution Dilemma

By | Tuesday August 27, 2013 @ 10:45am PDT

UPDATE, 10:30 AM: CBS’ Under The Dome dominated Monday in overall audience (10.81 million) and in both the 18-49 (2.5 rating) and 25-54 (3.4 rating) demos. Though Time Warner Cable continues not to carry CBS stations in three of the country’s Top 5 markets, affecting about 3.2 million customers, the Stephen King adaptation scored more than 5 million more viewers than the night’s closest competitor, NBC’s American Ninja Warrior (5.78 million viewers). Ninja and CBS’ How I Met Your Mother rerun tied in the demo at 8 PM (1.4 rating) but Ninja had the total-viewer edge (5.4 million) over HIMYM (4.5 mil). Ninja took over in both races at 8:30. For the full hour, Ninja enjoyed its top demo rating since its summer premiere — it also won the hour among men and women 18-34 and 25-54. Read More »

RATINGS RAT RACE: ‘Under The Dome’ Down, ‘Siberia’ Debuts Soft, ‘American Ninja Warrior’ Falls In Returns

By | Tuesday July 2, 2013 @ 9:11am PDT

The second week of CBS’ Under The Dome (2.8/8) saw a few cracks in the new drama’s strong ratings shell. Following its big debut last week, the Amblin TV/DreamWorks TV-produced show was down 15% on Monday — not altogether unrespectable retention levels for the series based on Stephen King’s 2009 novel. Under The Dome was easily the top-rated show of the night and by far the most watched with 11.52 million viewers. Otherwise, CBS was all repeats Monday. Like on most almost-holiday summer nights, usage was down 5% among adults 18-49 and dipped 4% from last week. CBS was tops for the night in adults 18-49 and in viewers with 7.08 million.
