Homeland And Dexter Earn Strong Ratings For Showtime
Showtime has cause to celebrate after Sunday night’s airings of the season finales for Dexter and Homeland. The intense dramas came to a close this week, with Homeland wrapping up its first season and Dexter closing out its sixth. From the sound of it, both series did fairly well in the ratings.
Things on Homeland came to a boil this Sunday night as the series’ first season finale, which proved to be explosive in many ways (despite the lack of actual explosions, thanks in large part to the efforts and mentally unstable nature of Clare Danes’ Carrie Mathison.) TVLine posted the ratings, and 1.71 million people tuned in for the 10:00 p.m. airing of the Homeland finale. 2.03 million viewers total viewers tuned in that night, which makes it he network’s highest-rated finale for a new series.
Meanwhile, Dexter also did well, bringing in 2.23 million viewers for its 9:00 p.m. airing and 2.71 million viewers for the night, which gave the series its best ratings for the year, as well as making it Showtime’s most-watched telecast this year. So all around, it’s looking like Homeland and Dexter were big wins this season. Now we have to wait until next year to find out what Brody's new plan is on Homeland, and how Dexter's sister reacts to what she saw in the final moments of Dexter.
