The week was mostly quiet, but we did get our first premiere of the fall.

Syfy's Haven was back for its fourth season and turned in solid numbers Friday night, while Under the Dome slipped to a low point that was still not all that low. Those were the only two shows on our list that got any action last week, but not to worry. Next week we'll have network premieres galore, and even more the week after that, so it's about to get really crowded around here. Watch this space over the next two weeks to see how all the new shows did, and how the returning ones are holding up.

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


MONDAY, September 9

Under the Dome (CBS) 9.72 million viewers/2.1/6 share
