    Will “Under The Dome” and “24: Live Another Day” both be considered miniseries for Emmy consideration?

    They are both miniseries.  Want to turn this into the official Under the Dome thread?

    Just read this article on Yahoo TV.  This confirms that Under the Dome is not a miniseries, which means it’s probably being submitted as a series.

    NOTHING ‘MINI’ ABOUT IT | “This is not a miniseries,” Baer clarified, referencing early reports. “It’s a 13-episode series.” Continued Vaughan, “Stephen King’s book takes place over a relatively short period of time. But when we first started talking about [to him], he said, ‘When I came up with this idea, I envisioned a town being trapped for years at a time. That’s something that you guys could get to do that I didn’t, and that might necessitate a different ending.” That means fans of the novel can look forward to a completely different conclusion to the saga. “We pitched Stephen a far-out, big-swing [ending] for if we’re lucky enough for this to go several years, and he was so excited about it,” revealed Vaughan.

    Yeah, I’m actually kinda surprised people thought Under The Dome was a mini.

    I never really read too much about it.  I just assumed that as a summer “event” with a short order and a high-concept premise lifted from a single book that it was a miniseries.

    Good for Dean Norris then getting a new regular role.

    If we’re turning this into the ‘Under the Dome’ thread, then it should be said that they scored an impressive 13 million viewers and a 3.2 in the 18-49 demo. That’s insane for a summer series.

    Brian K. Vaughan warrants attention though. The man is the best comic book writer of his generation. In fact, I only haven’t watched it yet because I have low tolerance for Stephen King, and especially, Stephen King adaptations not done by Kubrick or De Palma.

    Adjusted up to a 3.3 in the finals!
