Really excited. Tonight in the UK, at 22:00hrs, Channel 5 begins showing UTD. I'm looking forward to the different take on the story, and I can watch happy in the knowledge that there is going to be a second series.
CBS’ drama series Under The Dome got off to a good start last night for UK broadcaster Channel 5.
Airing behind the finale of Big Brother (which peaked with 2.6 million viewers), Stephen King’s 13 episode series premiered to an average of just over 2 million viewers (including+1) and a 12% share. The ratings for the series are well above Channel 5′s slot average and outperformed other recent US premieres on the channel such as Person of Interest in August 2012 and its average audience of 1.5 million viewers, but fell short of the 2.9 million viewers that tuned into the series premiere of Dallas in September 2012.
