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.

    Under the Dome :D

  • Travis

    Great for Under the Dome. Now lets hope the show gets better.

  • Leon

    When’s the last time a summer show was pulling in those kind of numbers? Under the Dome is a bonified HIT!

  • JR35

    UTD viewers are being very faithful. :)

  • CBSviewer

    Go UTD ! Renewal is coming :)

  • Jay

    I didn’t expect UTD to rise this week! Great for the fans (even if it’s renewal is a no brainer). I stopped watching because of the dialogue and storyline, but it’s awesome for scripted summer shows in general.

  • Andy

    So happy for UTD!!!! It’s amazing.

  • Samunto

    Excellent growth for Under the Dome!! Really impressive ratings. There’s hope that 24 won’t tank when it airs next summer.

  • Claudia

    Poor CW

  • Observer

    It’s funny, the reviews I’ve read for UTD keep getting worse. Meanwhile the ratings keep getting better. Bet we hear about a season 2 very soon.

  • Holly

    Five episodes into a summer series and it’s still getting 2.8? That’s really impressive.

  • John A

    Yeah time for CBS to renew UTD.

  • MichaelChickless

    WOW for UTD! Blew the roof off the dump!

  • Tyson

    The Royal Baby special with no advance notice beat Siberia? Now you know why Siberia was pre-empted.

  • Hardline_Pro

    All the UTD haters can officially suck it. :D

  • Survivor Fan

    For the first time in a few years, we have a race for the #1 show of summer (not counting The Voice, which aired mostly in season):

    Under the Dome- 2.88 (2.90 with adjustment up)
    America’s Got Talent- 2.74 (Wed. airings only- 2.85)

  • steve

    Id expect to see an UTD renewal anytime soon as for a 10pm show with repeat as lead in & summer show these numbers are amazing

  • TV Viewer

    2.8 for Under the Dome is very good. I wonder if it will adjust upward?

  • Tom Shaw

    Under the Dome… rose?

    How bizarre is it that arguably the two biggest broadcast hits of the season are The Following and Under the Dome. Yet another reminder that quality has basically no relationship with ratings.

    The bigger point is that between The Following, Under the Dome, and The Walking Dead, the biggest genre on TV right now is Horror. (Hell, American Horror Story and Grimm outperform our expectations too.) Horror’s rise is a development I certainly didn’t expect: is it a sign of needing a core audience to build off of, content restrictions dropping to the point where Horror is “violent enough” to work on TV, or just another cyclical “Remember what people loved in movies ~5 years ago? Here’s the TV version.”
