Under the Dome appears to have made a big – and by big, I mean excellent – splash with viewers!
According to LATimes, “CBS’s big-ticket summer series “Under the Dome” got off to a strong start Monday night with 13.14 million viewers tuning in, according to Nielsen.
“For CBS, the numbers were the best for a new summer scripted show since the 1992 prime-time soap “2000 Malibu Road” delivered 17.05 million viewers.
“Of course, in 1992, 17 million viewers was not considered a huge number whereas 13 million viewers is large by 2013 standards.
“Under the Dome” cost between $3 million and $3.4 million per-episode to make. CBS sold digital rights to the 13-episode series to Amazon at a price in the high six figures per-episode and also did well with international sales.”
