The storyline on Under the Dome may be getting increasingly wacky, but viewers are hanging in.

Daily Comparison 2013 Mon Aug 19 three way

CBS:  UNDER THE DOME held even at 2.4, tying its series low, but still towering over everything else that aired last night.  The reruns that preceded it were all 0.9-1.0.

NBC:  A bad night.  AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR slipped 0.1 to 1.5, GET OUT ALIVE fell 2.0 to a new low 1.2, and SIBERIA tied its low 0.7.

ABC:  MISTRESSES, airing for the first time in 3 weeks, tied its low 1.0.

FOX:  Reruns at 0.7-0.8.

CW:  BREAKING POINTE stayed at 0.2 after a HART OF DIXIE rerun managed 0.3.

Every network except CBS has something new (and unscripted) tonight, and on cable, USA airs a hyped flashback episode of SUITS.
