'Under the Dome' ratings add over 3 million viewers with live plus 3-day
Now the live + 3-day ratings are in, which means the ratings include households that watched the show on the DVR within three days of the premiere, and things are looking good for Chester's Mill, Maine.
The show added over 3 million viewers, for a total of 16.7 million viewers. It also added a whole point in the 18-49 demo, putting the number at 4.3.
Star Mike Vogel (above) tells Zap2it the stars couldn't be happier.
"We are [thrilled]," says Vogel. "Traditionally, summer has been a wasteland to dump episodes of things, everyone just assumed you can't put new programming on. But what cable's done is show us that people will tune in for content, what they like and what they connect with."
"If we can sustain [the ratings], I think it's a groundbreaking thing for network television."
"Under the Dome" airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
