CBS packed a lot of people "Under the Dome" Monday, as the premiere of the series based on Stephen King's novel opened to more viewers than any summer series since 2007.

It was big enough, to give CBS a win in viewers for the night, but the adults 18-49 honors go to NBC thanks to Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals, which saw the Chicago Blackhawks win the Cup. "The Bachelorette" also rose for ABC, hitting a season high in viewers and matching its best performance in the 18-49 demographic.

ABC (5.3 million, 3.8/6) came in third. FOX was a fairly distant fourth with 1.7 million viewers and a 1.1/2. The CW (690,000, 0.4/1) trailed.
