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.

Aida September 23, 2014 at 9:44 am

Enough is enough! Solve the dome issue and move on. geese!


Sandy September 23, 2014 at 4:34 pm

Aida, what’s the problem? If you don’t like the show, why did you watch it the whole season? People really are strange – it’s like you’re trying to tell them how to write the show and since it doesn’t meet your approval, well, gonna watch it anyway so I have something to bitch about. turn the channel next time it comes on. Simple solutions are sometimes hard for people to understand.


Jessica Wagoner September 23, 2014 at 2:14 am

Preferably do not cancel! Those that hate the show, change the channel. It’s that simple. Two adults in the demo the network looks for that watch it every week on both seasons. We are hooked. Please don’t cancel Under the Dome!


Sandy September 23, 2014 at 1:20 am

I really like this show but have to admit I wanted to see a great ending tonight. I did not think it was going to have another season. I would like to see the show have a way for at least one person to come and go outside of the dome. I hope they will include that in season three.


cmyers September 22, 2014 at 11:15 pm

Absolutely love this show! Please renew season 3. Characters are great and plenty of twists and turns…the variety is what keeps it interesting you keep yourself guessing how things will turn out! Great show, and for the people who give a thumbs down its interesting how they took the time to even comment on this site…deep down you live it too! Lol!

I agree!! LOVE THIS SHOW… Can’t get enough!!


Anonymous September 22, 2014 at 11:10 pm

One of the only shows I like, I sure hope it renews


Ray Hendrix September 22, 2014 at 11:08 pm

Renw it!! It is Stephen King!!!!!


Scott September 22, 2014 at 11:54 am

I thought season 1 was OK, but season 2 is absolutely brutal. Melanie is sick, now she’s better. Now she’s sick. Now she’s better.

The dome is threatening our crops. Then acid rain. Next up extreme cold, and finally now the walls are closing in. Oh no, what do we do? Hey look! It miraculously stopped, so the dome must be happy again. So what’s next? Darkness? Heat? Locusts? Lightning bolts out of Big Jim’s arse? Who cares. The show feels thin and recycled already, and I’m reading up to 8 seasons? Thanks but no thanks.

No, I haven’t read the book, either. Under the Dome just isn’t good. Glaring story inconsistencies, boring/pointless supporting characters, pacing problems and general lack of direction.. Interesting idea, poor execution. Flush it and move on.

If it takes up to 6 more seasons to resolve all this, I’d rather just read the novel.


Linda September 22, 2014 at 12:28 pm

I find the show interesting because it’s totally different from the book. Season 1 was close because King had full control over the writing, but I believe other writers are involved and want to change everything. 8 seasons – never saw that nor do I believe it. In fact, I’m thinking 3 will be the most. But do read the book, it is much more King style and the ending is a real surprise.

I think tonight decides if Season 3 comes, depending on the ratings. You know TV stations, it can be the best show out there and they will ax it for something stupid. I seriously don’t see how the Simpsons keep going – that is TOTALLY STUPID and poor language for kids watching.

So I’m going to enjoy tonight’s Dome – I saw a sneak preview and Big Jim totally goes berserk!!!! And I want another season.


Mike September 22, 2014 at 9:44 pm

Horrible .. Stupid .. Let’s end it ! On the other hand, ” The Blacklist ” is premiere tonight.


Sandy September 22, 2014 at 9:49 pm

Mike – go watch the Black list, the rest of us will enjoy Under the Dome. So glad we have a freedom of choice, where we don’t have to watch something we don’t like.


SRP September 23, 2014 at 3:14 am

In first season MONTHS went by now after 13 WEEKS it’s only been 2 weeks?
END IT NOW!!!Season 2 writers need a visit from BIG JIM!!!!


kristie September 21, 2014 at 12:44 pm

Love it. The best show ever! Please renew it.


misterv September 20, 2014 at 12:00 pm

Comments range from love it or leave it. The negative reviews are very negative. Interesting that a TV show can evoke that kind of emotion. Personally it is a show I will continue watching during the summer unless I find better shows to replace it on my DVR.
For those who want to put a ‘bullet’ in it I wonder what you would expect it to be replaced with? I’d also be interested to hear what summer shows you do watch.
For me, The Last Ship and Legends are two Summer shows I enjoy. I play catch up on my DVR for other viewing during the Summer.


ana September 19, 2014 at 1:26 pm

I like this show, please renew it! Please, another season


sunstrip September 18, 2014 at 11:14 am

Do the entire TV world a favor and put a bullet into this series, put it and us out of our misery. One of the worst series I have ever seen, the story had potential at the beginning, but then it spun off into absolute stupidity, and the acting became atrocious..half of these actors must be related to the producer.

PLEASE OH PLEASE can this ticker !!!!


Bekka September 18, 2014 at 1:51 pm

At the point where the show became stupid, and the acting atrocious, was there someone holding a gun to your head saying you had to keep watching? If you don’t like it, there are more shows to watch, move on and quit torturing yourself. A majority of us love the show, but when I find a show I don’t like, it’s so simple to hit the remote button and watching something else. Or don’t you know how?


Scott September 22, 2014 at 11:57 am

That’s what I’m doing. I was only hanging in there to see how the show is supposedly going to end, but now I’m reading up to maybe SIX more seasons? Forget that. I can’t stand the show and I’m done with it. Consider my channel changed.


Kellie September 20, 2014 at 10:46 am

Do all of us and yourself a favor and use that bullet on yourself. If you don’t like a show, turn the channel. It’s just that simple.


Sonny September 20, 2014 at 2:40 pm



Scott September 22, 2014 at 11:57 am

Mature response.


mike September 18, 2014 at 9:15 am

One of the worst tv shows ever. Not even the bad kind you can laugh at. Just bad. Put this loser out of it’s misery and cancel it.


Bekka September 18, 2014 at 11:45 am

It always makes me laugh when people say how much they hate the show, yet they are watching it. Why are you watching it if it’s so bad, to punish yourself? Or just so you can give negative feedback – maybe you’re one of those that LOVE giving negative feedback on all the surveys that come out. I can respect you don’t like the show, but to keep watching is pretty weird.

I myself, love the show and want to see another season. If you reallypay attention to the events in the show, you can immerse yourself into it and enjoy it. It’s like any fiction novel of Stephen King (unless you don’t like King, then don’t watch his shows), there’s fun, danger, great actors, maybe some of the other writers aren’t doing such a great job, but King, himself, can outwrite any horror author. Bring back SEASON 3.


Scott September 22, 2014 at 12:00 pm

Let me explain this to you – because you have to watch the show to find out whether you like it or not. I was hanging in there just hoping to find out how the show ends, but now I’m reading up to maybe SIX more seasons? No way. I’m done. Channel changed.


Bekka September 18, 2014 at 11:46 am



Kellie September 20, 2014 at 10:48 am

I happen to like the show. If you don’t like it don’t watch it….period.


alii September 17, 2014 at 5:18 pm

I love this show so much! It actually makes me laugh and cry and connect with the characters! I wait every week for it to come one and hated waiting almost a year for season 2 even. Please, please please renew it! To many shows that are good or even show a lot of promise get canceled lately and replaced with complete crap! We need a real ending! Not the cliff hanger we have been told we get next week! Even just do one more season!
