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 have to 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.

Under the Dome is a great premise and
an excellent show…particularly for Broadcast
which is not known for unique, edgy TV. True,
The last episodes were not nearly as good as
the first episodes…but Under The Dome is far better
than maybe 50 or 60 other shows that made
it to the small screen….and it has earned its place.
What happened to Under The Dome? should is a good show.
Cancelling Under The Dome would be a mistake.

I just got season 2 on DVD yesterday. I love this series. About time we had a good series and not them stupid reality shows that I’m sick of on just about every channel. Stephen King is not only an excellent writer but when his books are turned into movies, I love it more. The only good series I watch now is “Under the Dome,” “The Returned,” and “Fortitude.”
Not only did season 1 of Under the Dome leave us hanging but… season 2 did the same. WE NEED SEASON 3!!

Garbage. Should be cancelled.


VE January 17, 2015 at 11:33 am

Great? No. But I will continue watching it.
The book is much better of course, as almost all books are. This series has deviated from the book so I try not to compare it anymore.
My only request is that they do provide closure whenever the series does end.

The second season was not as good as the first, in my opinion.
Rachelle Lefevre’s “acting” is abysmal. Dean Norris’s performance is what keeps me watching this rather second-rate show.


Jen October 7, 2014 at 3:14 pm

Whaaaat? Seriously? But the 2nd season was better than the 1st! it was bonkers and very cool – it took me and my husband a day to watch the 2nd one – it was brilliant! please renew!

p.s. i even got a book, gonna start reading shortly, cant wait so long anyway lol


Bree Virág October 1, 2014 at 3:00 am

Please, please renew this for a Season 3!! I love this damn show!


Michael H Hamilton September 27, 2014 at 11:02 pm

I’m with the majority here…I love the show! If you absolutely must cancel it, please give us some sort of resolution with it…give us at least a partial season. Don’t drop it and leave us hanging like this! This is a rare animal…Speilberg and Stephen King, working together…Let it run it’s course.


Jim Drummond November 14, 2014 at 12:00 am

I agree 110% let it run its course. Way too good to stop now!


Lori September 25, 2014 at 3:29 am

tisha kay September 24, 2014 at 9:28 pm

=-O OMGGGGG :'( love this I hope they don’t cancel I have to see the real ending of this Its not fair if they cancel it

This is in my top 10 worst shows of the decade. Horrible acting and writing. Its bad when the most believable thing in the series is that a magic dome swallows a city.


Shari September 24, 2014 at 7:27 pm

You’re in the minority with disliking the show, and if you didn’t like it, why did you keep watching? Go watch some reality tv, that’s so believable!

YES INDEED, renew the show so we can see what happens from the cliffhanger. If no one is holding a gun to your head, you can change channels you know. It’s really easy.


tammy September 23, 2014 at 8:30 pm

please renew


ayhan September 23, 2014 at 7:54 pm
