'Under the Dome' rises, 'Backpackers' and 'Seed' tank
Fast National ratings for Monday, July 14, 2014.
The season finale for FOX's limited "24: Live Another Day" rose on Monday and combined with a solid episode of "MasterChef" to help the network win primetime in all measures.
The bump for "24" made up for a very small dip for FOX's "MasterChef."
CBS' "Under the Dome" dropped in overall viewers, but rose a bit in the key demo and actually ranked as Monday's top individual show in both measures and moved back ahead of "American Ninja Warrior" among young viewers. [CBS changed the lead-in for "Dome," going with a "Big Bang Theory" repeat instead of "Mike & Molly," which almost certainly helped.]
Among other notables, The CW's "Backpackers" and "Seed" got off to weak starts, squandering the audience from a new "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"
On to the numbers...
