'Dexter' finale is Showtime's most-watched episode of anything ever
You may not have loved it. But you sure didn’t miss it.
Showtime’s Dexter series finale Sunday night became the network’s most-watched episode of any original series ever.
Dexter had 2.8 million viewers at 9 p.m., up 13 percent from the season 8 premiere — and that’s despite airing against the Emmys. The show’s final season ranks as its most watched, averaging 6.4 million viewers across all platforms. Lead-out Ray Donovan, in case you’re wondering, had 2.1 million viewers, the biggest average of a Showtime freshman series finale — though you’d kind-of expect that given the Dexter numbers.
