THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 07/01/2014 Under the Dome Premiere Ratings, Sleepy Hollow Wins, Tammy Premiere Tonight and more!

Hate to say I told you so, but…  Woo Hoo! How awesome was the premiere episode of Under the Dome!  Ncasting hosted an extraordinary Viewing Party in downtown Wilmington NC at Hell’s Kitchen to celebrate the Season 2 Premiere of Under The Dome. Cast members that came out with their Chester’s Mill Townsfolk were… Colin Ford, Alexander Koch, Makenzie Lintz, and new cast members Grace Cox, Brett Cullen and Max Ehrich. Here’s a few pics thanks to Mary Jo Jackson!

Missed the premiere episode?  WATCH IT NOW! 

nielsenNow how did Under the Dome do in the ratings game? Well, the initial reports for Season two put them at #1 in their time slot! AND Under the Dome beat everything else on broadcast television FOR THE ENTIRE NIGHT, doubling Mistresses in their A19-49 demo, plus beat Master Chef and Bachelor by a landslide as well.  Now compared to its season one premiere it was down 1/3. The same-day ratings show we had 9.4 Million viewers for A18-49 with a 2.2. However, once we get the full report including the DVR numbers, the viewership will swoosh up in numbers over the coming days.  We will see if the numbers tick up or down later today.  READ FULL REPORT
