Though the last episode of Dexter aired opposite stiff competition (the Emmys and NFL football on NBC, for example), the serial killer swan song set a ratings record for Showtime.
The series finale was the most-watched original airing in Showtime history, attracting 2.8 million viewers. Including the night’s multiple airings, the tally rises to 3.3 million.
The previous record-holder was Dexter’s 2012 season finale with 2.7 million initial airing viewers.
