The Word: ‘Under the Dome’ still under said dome
Welp, it looks like no one is escaping that stupid dome anytime soon — CBS has renewed “Under the Dome” for a second season.
“We’re excited to tell more stories about the mystery of the dome and the secrets in Chester’s Mill, and are thrilled to have the master storyteller himself, Stephen King, tell the first one of next season,” CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said in a statement.
The renewal makes sense as the show is a bonafide hit for the network, averaging about 13.8 million viewers, according to Nielsen numbers provided to the network.
Considering this was to be a mini-series, done and over in 13 tight episodes, this renewal is just stretching it out to make advertising dollars. So instead of a mini-series, it will now be a TV show. So what are they going to call the second season, “Under the Dome: Still Not Over It”?
