Under the Dome: Season Two Ratings

Under the Dome TV show on CBS: season two ratingsLast summer, Under the Dome was a big success for CBS. How will season two do in the ratings? Will this Stephen King TV show be renewed for a third season or will it be cancelled instead? Time will tell.

Under the Dome revolves around residents of Chester’s Mill in Maine after a large transparent dome cuts them off from the world. Those on the inside but work to survive with limited resources and rising tension. The large cast includes Mike Vogel, Rachelle Lefevre, Natalie Martinez, Britt Robertson, Alexander Koch, Nicholas Strong, Colin Ford, Mackenzie Lintz, Jolene Purdy, Aisha Hinds, Dean Norris, Eddie Cahill, and Karla Crome.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

The show is going downhill very fast. Please put it (and us) out of its (our) misery!!!!

First of all, Haven is a fantastic show! The only problem is that it requires people to be intelligent and open-minded to understand and appreciate it! This was the same problem with the series Intelligence, along with its significantly poor timeslot! Stephen King knows what he’s doing, and he does it well! I like Under The Dome, and will definitely continue to watch! If you don’t like it, don’t watch it, but get over it already!

Thanks for the advice, I never realised I could just turn this unmitigated tripe off.
As for Haven, it started OK but then came the apparantly random shifts in focus and tone as the writers struggled to eek out the plot across a significantly longer span than they originally expected.
I would however call you up on “it requires people to be intelligent and open-minded to understand and appreciate it”. I don’t think anybody has been unreasonable in critisising the show, with some quite valid points made. Also using hyperbole and the dross that was (un)Intelligence as an example is unlikely to aid your case.

This show has gone from average to bad to now worse. I turned it off before the end of the first new show and have deleted it from the taping queue. What promise this had, but it would have been better if it were wrapped up in one season.

And where exactly has all their food and other essentials been coming from? No store or restaurant keeps that large an inventory.

I gave up after maybe 4 episodes, about when the psycho stalker/murder seemed to be being rehabilitated and a new character turned up – she’d been hidden for weeks.
The logistics aren’t even worth bothering about and the ending (of the book) is so poor, it’s barely worth “Explor(ers)ing”.

I said it before and I’ll say it again.

Viewers please don’t get attached to this show………It’s a great show but CBS has a big problem with cancelling great shows ! The problem is CBS puts good shows, (I’m surprised “Under the Dome” made it this far,) in rotten time slots and then they wonder why they don’t do good. They did it with “Intelligence and now the did it with another good show, Reckless (Sundays @ 10 PM.) I personally will not get attached to any CBS shows. I got burnt by really liking Intelligence, only to find out it was cancelled. CBS should but their half-assed Reality shows in the time slots nobody has time for.

Under statement of the year!!!!!! It is true of ALL networks!


Why Watch July 2, 2014 at 12:17 pm

Personally I don’t think Under the Dome, Intelligence and Reckless are/were good shows. Reality shows are even worse.

This is a good show. It offers suspense & imagination. Like “The Good Wife”, it is also willing to take a risk by eliminating key characters. However it was disappointing to me to see Linda’s character go. She has represented a stabilizing force in all the craziness. Yes! I did see Stephan King.

Under the Dome should have been resolved FIRST YEAR but NO! CBS MILKS it; Season 2 opener written by King; WAY DIFFERENT FEEL; BAD ! They should wrap this up at the end of season 2; LONG OVERDUE! Like having _Shawshank Redemption_ play for 3 years! CRIPES !!!

They’ve dragged out Haven – based on a king short story- for what’ll be 5 years, so who knows how long this dull story will manage.


Wild Wilson July 1, 2014 at 1:33 pm

Thought Under the Dome was enjoyable last night except for all the things that magnets would stick to which unfortunately many would not – lol Good to see Stephan ask for a cup of coffee later on in the show – did you see him?
