I was going to state that few of the TV adaptations of Stephen King can bhe found in Earth Prime-Time, the Toobworld proper.

But since then I've looked over the list, and found that most of them can remain in the main Toobworld - such as:
  • 'The Shining'
  • 'Salem's Lot' (original version)
  • 'Storm Of The Century'
  • 'It'
  • 'The Tommyknockers'
  • the "Rekindled" version of "Firestarter"
The TV series 'Kingdom Hospital', 'Haven', and most of 'The Dead Zone' would be in the main Toobworld. ('The Dead Zone' switched over to an alternate TV dimension when the President of the United States was assassinated.) Some of the episodes from the anthology series 'Nightmares & Dreamscapes' might take place in Toobworld, but still others would have to be relegated to other worlds.

And of course, as Monty Python would put it, 'The Stand' is right out!

So I know nothing more about this new TV production, 'Under The Dome', other than the basic premise. But depending on how it concludes, at present I can see now reason why it can't be considered part of Earth Prime-Time. After all, the Toobworld Dynamic has been able to absorb the loss of a sizable chunk of a Los Angeles suburb (as seen in an episode of 'The Outer Limits') as well as alien invasions from - again - 'The Outer Limits', and 'The Twilight Zone', 'Doctor Who', and even 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents'.

We'll just have to wait and view.....
