"UNDER THE DOME" IS MONDAY'S MOST-WATCHED PROGRAM AND HIGHEST RATED AMONG ADULTS 25-54

 

“Dome” Places First in Time Period in Viewers, Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54

 

UNDER THE DOME was Monday's most-watched program and highest rated in adults 25-54, according to Nielsen preliminary live plus same day ratings for August 5.

 

At 10:00 PM, UNDER THE DOME was first in viewers (10.20m), A18-49 (2.5/08, tie) and A25-54 (3.3/07) up against atypical "Bachelorette" programming.

 

Compared to the time period last year, UNDER THE DOME was up +185% in viewers, +213% in A18-49 and +230% in A25-54.

 

Compared to the same night last year, CBS was up +73% in viewers, +60% in A18-49 and +69% in A25-54.

 

RATINGS IN CONTEXT OF TIME WARNER CABLE DISPUTE

 

  • Time Warner Cable has blacked out CBS stations to 3.2 million of its customers in New York, Los Angeles and Dallas.
  • The influence on the national average is expected to be minimal.  Through the first 4 nights, CBS Research estimates a minor 1% impact.
  • Because of CBS’s strong ratings growth this summer, the net effect of the blackout will not present an overall ratings hardship.
  • In addition, August is traditionally one of the lowest months of the year for ratings and advertising revenue, making the overall financial impact of the blackout negligible.

 

Updated Monday ratings will be available this afternoon.

    You can’t stop the dome; you can only hope to contain it.

    Does CBS have some special advertisers that actually care more about the 25-54 demo? Because they seem to quote it more often than any other network…

  • HG

    I don’t get why the age ends at 54….don’t they care about EVERYone. Ratings would a heck of a lot higher if they did and shows might have a chance to stay on the air.

    Well, what else was on at the same time? NOTHING. This show is just terrible. I can’t believe we will have to endure this again next summer.
