Showtime Has Its Largest Sunday Audience Ever

Oct 2, 2012  •  Post A Comment

Showtime had a big ratings night Sunday, fueled by two season premieres, B&C reports. The pay-cable network apparently benefited from the Emmy win for “Homeland” as best drama series a week ago.

For its season two premiere, "Homeland" delivered 1.73 million viewers at 10 p.m. on Sunday, a gain of 60% from its series debut a year earlier. Across its three airings Sunday, the show totaled 2.07 million viewers, an increase of 50% when compared with the first season’s debut night, the story adds.

The 2.07 million figure was also up 2% from the night of the “Homeland” season one finale, the story reports. “Homeland” is on track to become Showtime’s second-most-watched series, behind “Dexter.”

“Earlier in the night, the seventh season premiere of ‘Dexter’ delivered 2.4 million viewers at 9 p.m. and 3.04 million for the night, increasing 10% versus its season six premiere in both measures,” the story reports.

The combination of “Dexter” and “Homeland” gave Showtime its largest Sunday audience of all time, the report adds.
