After bringing in hefty numbers this summer, CBS is planning on renewing their hit Under the Dome for a second season. As for those who are wondering if an extension of the show would strain credibility, CBS CEO Les Moonves says this the NYT and you:
“Why can’t they be under the dome for a long period of time? This is television.”
Okay. Since I like to be helpful, here are a few ways they could stay under the dome where it would still make sense.
1) START A NEW DOME! But put this one over the White House. Or better yet? Congress! Yeaaaaaaaah.
2) Put a dome inside the dome. Or multiple domes! Like for example, when anyone says a curse word, a mini-dome would drop on them.
3) The dome turns into the Houston Astrodome. And the inhabitants can't help but play football? Right? (I am not grasping here.)
4) Someone discovers a hole in the dome, but whenever they pass through it, they wind up in a different Chik-fil-A. WITH A DOME OVER IT.
5) Okay, I don't have any other ideas. This show is stupid now, and will continue to be so.
