Sunday night's "Dexter" and "Homeland" season finales were the highest-viewed episodes in both series' histories ... breaking a slew of Showtime ratings records they set last week.
"Dexter" was the higher-rated drama, attracting 2.75 million viewers at 9 p.m. and 3.4 million for the total night audience, making it the highest-rated original episode in Showtime history. Last week, 2.6 million viewers watched at 9 p.m. and 3.06 million on the night, with both marks setting all-time Showtime records at the time.
"Dexter's" Season 7 ratings surge has caused many to wonder if the network will stick to its tentative plan to end the series after Season 8.
"Homeland" scored 2.7 million total nightly viewers, narrowly beating the ratings for last week's record episode, which came in at 2.6 million. The Season 2 finale established a new ratings high for the series.
