    Whoa! Much better than I was expecting!

  • Simon

    Yes! Proof that airing serialized shows in the summer can do well!

  • gigi

    Wow! Better than Elementary!

  • Jeff (Canada)

    For a summer show that’s REALLY good!

  • Survivor Fan

    That would be the biggest CBS premiere since Two Broke Girls!

  • rob60990

    It did surprisingly well. We’ll see how it holds in current weeks.

  • Dennis

    Holy Crap!!!

  • Dennis

    and some fools thought it would struggle to get a 1.0 :D ROFL !!!

  • American

    Wow now I wished I’d watched :(

  • Sam

    Wow, that’s kinda huge for a summer show. Gotta love stephen king!

  • SVU: Hannibal

    Tied with The Following as the #2 drama premiere during the 2012-2013 season. Trailed only Revolution (4.1).

  • Andy

    Yes!!! This is great news for all of network TV!!!

    Under The Domes success is NOT proof that serialised shows can do well in the summer. This is 1 program out of about 20 which has become a hit. It is an anomaly to the rule. It is not an indication that serialised shows can do well because it is only 1 show out of 20 which has done well

    It could loose 50% of that rating and realistically be renewed for a season 2…
    It’s already been sold to over 100 broadcasters

  • gg

    That’s not bad… not-bad-at-all.

  • Dillan

    That’s amazing!

  • gg

    Looking forward to the half-hour numbers…

    “This is 1 program out of about 20 which has become a hit.”

    I just love people who declare a show a hit after airing 1 episode…

  • CrimTV

    oh my god! WOW!


    Just because you predicted a 1.2 for the premiere. A 3.2 for Summer is huge, premiere or not, and it’s huge for regular season too!

  • Devin

    Wow, didn’t see that coming.
