This weekend’s offering of both “Dexter” and “Homeland” provided Showtime with a record breaking one-two punch in terms of ratings, knocking out other previous records with quite the wallop. Read on for details.

According to Deadline the shows’ penultimate episodes for the season posted both series’ highest ratings ever. “Dexter” drew 2.6 million viewers at 9 PM, the biggest audience ever for a Showtime original series, as well as the best total night delivery ever for a Showtime series with 3.08 million total viewers. “Dexter” edged Showtime’s previous record, which was held by the serial killer drama’s Season 4 finale on December 13, 2009 (2.57 million at 9 PM and 3.05 million for the night). Compared with the previous week, “Dexter” was up 25%.

  1. Am I like the only one who’s not madly in love with this season? It had a few high points – started off strong and picked back up in the last few episodes, but overall it was pretty “meh” to me. Especially Deb – I just don’t buy how she’s reacted to everything she’s learned this year.

    • I feel like they made Deb too jealous and vindictive this season. It also feels like they rushed some of the plot so they could focus on Laguerta’s investigation, which I’m betting will leave us with a cliffhanger.

      Still, nothing on this season has been as bad as watching Dexter shooting at stop signs and picking up gas station cashiers like he did last year.
