NBC won the 18-49 demo battle, while CBS drew more total viewers.
The highly anticipated series premiere of Under the Dome was a gigantic hit for CBS, drawing a downright amazing (for the summer) 3.3 demo and over 13 million total viewers. These numbers make UtD the highest rated summer premiere for its network in nearly eight years. Never underestimate the draw of a Stephen King story.
Elsewhere, the sixth and deciding game of the Stanley Cup Finals tied UtD for the night's demo crown, almost doubling what game five drew in that category. NBC must certainly be pleased. ABC's The Bachelorette rose three tenths to a 2.0. Mistresses dropped to another series low, and doesn't seem long for this world. The Goodwin Games rose a tenth to an 0.6 for FOX. The CW's Oh Sit! matched last week's 0.3.
