‘Dexter’ Debut Is Showtime’s First to Draw 1 Million Viewers

The second-season premiere of Showtime’s “Dexter” drew just over 1 million viewers, up 67 percent from the series’ first episode last year, and the first time a Showtime debut has topped the 1 million mark.

“Dexter” was followed by the start of season two of “Brotherhood,” which drew 371,000 viewers.

Showtime attributed the dropoff to a long interstitial that appeared between the shows. Even with the decline, however, viewership of “Brotherhood” was double that of last season’s premiere.

Showtime said the combined viewership of the 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. airings of “Dexter” was 1.42 million, the highest debut night for an original series on the network since Nielsen Media Research changed the way it calculates ratings in 2004.

Great show. It's a shame they had to spend all that ad money to get a measly 1.42 million.

I swear I opened the trunk to my car and there was an ad for Dexter playing right there. They were everywhere.

If you're missing this one, you're just a lame TV watcher.
