CBS Corp. chief executive Les Moonves told the Television Critics Association on Monday that King will write next summer's debut episode.

More than 13 million people watched the June debut episode of "Under the Dome," a strong number for the fall season, much less the summer.

The show has continued to draw about 11 million viewers per episode and has ranked either No. 1 or 2 among all programs each week.

Moonves says 13 episodes have been ordered for summer 2014.
