Three weeks from its finale, CBS summer hit “Under the Dome” was on the rise Monday, hitting a three-week high in young adults and easily standing as the night’s No. 1 program.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Under the Dome” averaged a 2.5 rating/7 share in adults 18-49 and 10.8 million viewers overall in the 10 o’clock hour, up a tick from the 2.4 it had the two previous weeks. It doubled the combined 18-49 delivery of ABC and NBC in the time period (1.2).

In total viewers, this was the biggest “Dome” in four weeks.

Elsewhere, NBC’s reality shows “American Ninja Warrior” (1.7/5 in 18-49, 5.8 million viewers overall) and “Get Out Alive With Bear Grylls” (1.3/4 in 18-49, 4.1 million viewers overall) were both up a couple of ticks week to week, with the former matching its season high in 18-49 and leading its timeslot. And at 10, “Siberia” (0.7/2 in 18-49, 1.9 million viewers overall) matched its score of last week.

ABC opened the night with a special repeat of “Shark Tank” (1.1/3 in 18-49, 4.6 million viewers overall), followed by drama “Mistresses” in its new time period (1.0/3 in 18-49, 3.4 million viewers overall), up a tick from its week-ago delivery at 10 o’clock. And closing out the night was an encore of “Castle” (0.5/2 in 18-49, 3.2 million viewers overall) as it returned to its regular-season timeslot.

Fox aired two repeats of “Raising Hope” (0.8/3 in 18-49, 2.2 million viewers overall at 8 and 0.7/2 in 18-49, 1.9 million viewers overall at 8:30), followed by encores of “New Girl” (0.8/2 in 18-49, 1.8 million viewers overall) and “The Mindy Project” (0.7/2 in 18-49, 1.7 million viewers overall).
