I'm more surprised they had one that fit him so well.

I have decided that the dome has an amplification effect on crazy (junior, the Rev, and the trigger happy cop couldn't have been that bad off all along or it would have been noticed well before now), and considering the rush to bomb it, apparently it works on the outside as well.

And apparently the effect leaks out into the real world as well, specifically concentrating where the script writers work.


Now there's an idea for a Stephen King book, TV series writers being possessed by the show they're writing, so that it goes where it wants to instead of where they originally intended.

And the show is really stupid.

Writer: "Dammit, Jim, we're SMARTER than this!"

Show: "Hyuck hyuck hyuck!"

At the Television Critics Association Press tour, CBS boss Les Moonves praised the series. "It's the way television should be. It's the way television can be," he said.

Come on people....don't you know high quality when you see it?!

now i feel like i'm contributing to the delinquency of cbs, in fact all of television, if i don't immediately delete the sp.

if the show is so great, it wouldn't be airing in the summer with the rest of the fall schedule rejects - who does he think he's kidding? unless he's admitting cbs was too inept to realize the show's potential before they scheduled the series...hmm...

I dreamed I was under the dome last night and it was just as ridiculous.

If I have that dream, I'm blaming you for putting the idea out into the wild.

I'm a few minutes into last night's episode and I'm not sure I can force myself to keep watching it.

Of course a second season means lots of padding with back story flashbacks.

CBS is using this show in its commercials aimed at putting pressure on Time Warner in their carriage negotiations. Personally, I think this show may be a good reason FOR TW to pull the channel, but that's just me.

The networks are having a push for more Summer programming since that seems to be where they can increase their viewing numbers now. While the normal viewing season numbers have been dwindling.

Multiple networks have plans for several bigger budget Summer shows next Summer. Like Fox with the show 24 which will air next Summer.

Under the Dome has been a huge success this Summer.

With last weeks episode the ratings and the viewer numbers actually started to rise again. It had over 11.5 million viewers before DVR and streaming was factored in. I'm curious if last nights episode will rise again in viewers. If so that would seem to imply that it has been having good word of mouth. Either way it is still the most watched show on TV right now.

The only reason I watch is for Rachelle Lefevre and Britt Robertson.

I guess for me the show is only half as good as it is for you (Rachelle Lefevre).

Then again, I may like Rachelle Lefevre as much as you like Rachelle Lefevre and Britt Robertson combined...

Good news for around here. I wonder if production will stay.
