Dome stays on top, Falling Skies rises + 48 other genre shows

There seems to be no stopping Under the Dome.

After a very strong debut last week, the summer series returned to keep most of its viewers and most of its ratings score, holding what looks to be the summer's top broadcast show slot. Meanwhile Falling Skies got a nice boost, True Blood  reclaimed the Sunday night crown, and Futurama took a somewhat steep drop.

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