Dexter Breaks Showtime Ratings Record
The season four finale of Dexter captured record ratings for original programming on Showtime. Growing 71% over the season three finale it drew over 2.5 million viewers at 9pm and over 3 million including the replay later in the evening.It was the biggest broadcast on Showtime overall since a 1999 Mike Tyson fight.
A direct beneficiary of Dexter’s success has been Californication which airs right after. It was up 72% over its previous season finale pulling in 1.1 million viewers. Californication was renewed earlier this year after it showed a 60% jump in its season premiere and ratings were strong throughout the season.
What did you think of the finales for Dexter and Californication? I was riveted throughout the episode of Dexter and knew that something big was coming but it was still a shock to see it play out that way. The entire season was great and it’ll be fascinating to see where they take the story from here. I also enjoyed the conclusion to the season of Californication and my interest in the show may have been saved. I had started to grow tired of the over-the-top nature with no real consequences being faced.
