/// There’s No Place Like Dome
CBS on Monday drew a huge crowd with the premiere of its ambitious scripted series, Under the Dome , delivering 13.1 million total viewers and a staggering 3.2 in the adults 18-49 demo. While it debuted on a sleepy summer Tuesday, Under the Dome’s fast national ratings topped the deliveries for every CBS series premiere of the 2012-13 broadcast season. (Elementary bowed Sept. 27 to a 3.1 in the dollar demo; runner-up Vegas opened two nights earlier to a 2.5 rating.) Dome’s preliminary ratings tied Fox’s The Following as the year’s second-biggest premiere. NBC’s Revolution earned the highest marks for a newcomer when it debuted out of The Voice on Sept. 17 (4.1). The 25-54 set also turned up in droves, as Dome drew a 4.3 in the demo. By way of comparison, Elementary premiered to a 4.0.
