We finally said goodbye to Futurama, and there were plenty of fans there for the sendoff. 

The legendary animated series ended its run (or so we think) last Wednesday with more than 2 million viewers tuning in. Meanwhile, Wilfred had a disappointing finale, Under the Dome stayed strong, and we continued to wait for the fall shows to liven things up.

Check out the numbers and commentary below to see how your favorite shows are doing in Live + Same Day ratings.


MONDAY, September 2

Under the Dome (CBS) 11.15 million viewers/2.7/8 share

Futurama got another big boost for its final episode ever (for now, at least), topping 2 million viewers and earning its best ratings score in years. A lot of fans are particularly sad to see this one go, and this finale proved it's still got at least a little energy.

After a great boost last week, Wilfred slipped for its season-three finale back to the numbers it's been dealing with all year. The numbers are low, but are they so low that we won't see this series again? We'll have to wait and find out.
