Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings, including demographics, are available at approximately 11 AM (ET) the day after telecast, and are released to subscribing customers daily. These data, from the National People Meter sample, are strictly time-period information, based on the normal broadcast network feed, and include all programming on the affiliated stations, sometimes including network programming, sometimes not. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. For example, with a World Series game, Fast Affiliate Ratings would include whatever aired from 8-11PM on affiliates in the Pacific Time Zone, following the live football game, but not game coverage that begins at 5PM PT. The same would be true of Presidential debates as well as live award shows and breaking news reports.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.

Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. (See also, Rating, which represents tuning or viewing as a percent of the entire population being measured.)

Time Shifted Viewing – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live+Same Day (Live+SD) and Live+7 Day. Time shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+Same Day (Live+SD) include viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3:00AM local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live+7 Day ratings include incremental viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.

    UTD steady as a rock!

  • Dennis

    YES … I think we can declare Under the Dome a solid hit now ! :D
    Poor Siberia, I like it

  • W

    Under the Dome is getting exciting and so intriguing to watch!

  • alim

    under the doom is a good show but some of the actors are freaking dreadful. like the boy and girl. thta junior omg awful.

  • Colin

    As i said, all the internet hate about UTD doesnt matter. People like it and it will be renewed.

  • CBSviewer

    Go UTD :) Great Show !

  • Dennis

    Also, there’s no way Big Jim is going to help Angie, he’s just going to shut the door and pretend he saw nothing

  • JR35

    UTD leaving its original 10 p.m. competition in the dust. :)

  • boonies

    RE: UTD…other than Dean Norris, the acting is just atrocious but for some reason I keep watching it (I know, I know…I can’t figure it out either). I’ll ride it out to the end, but I really hope it ends after a mini-series run as they can’t draw out the silly premise beyond that.

  • Mon

    Looks like Under the Dome has stabilized. The drop has been decreasing (0.4, 0.2, 0.0). But it might still hit mid-2s which will still be a strong performance anyway and maybe go up again as fall approaches.

    I like Siberia too. I hope the finale is a satisfying one. No way it’s going to be renewed.

  • MichaelChickless

    Just came in here looking for the UTD haters. Unbelievable ratings for a summer scripted series at the late hour of Primetime.

  • Winston

    Mistresses at least has never fallen below a 1.0

  • TimsDale4ever

    UTD is a smash! I need to start watching…

  • Andrew

    I actually saw Under the Dome live last night, instead of on my DVR days later. My 2.7 prediction for UTD was correct. As The Raconteurs say, steady as she goes.

  • Kris

    how does a show promoted as an event series, limited run, go on? do the 13 episodes and end it.

    Dick Fosbury would be ashamed of you!

  • John A

    That UTD episode was good. Hopefully it stays good as episode 2 and 3 were bad. 2.7 for a summer show is great.

  • TV Viewer


    I did not read the book, but, I think Big Jim is more like the type of person who would kill Angie, (whom has been missing anyway for quite a while), as he regards her as being a big problem best solved with her dead and buried. This will lead to a fight with his son, who kept her locked up for several days, and could cause his boy a lot of trouble, if he let her live.

    I am sure many people will write; “No kidding Sherlock”, but, I doubt, Big Jim is the type of person to play hero, when he found out about Angie.

  • Dan S

    Looks like UTD has leveled off & shouldn’t drop much further. Either people are sold on the show or have stopped watching it by now. I’m quite certain it’ll return with a 2nd season next year.

    @TV Viewer

    No kidding Sherlock !
