‘Homeland’ sets ratings record

Showtime drama draws 2.5 million over two telecasts

The Sunday night cable ratings war was good to Showtime as “Homeland” registered its most-watched episode with 2.5 million over two telecasts.

The 10 p.m. showing drew 2.2 million and approximately 300,000 more came aboard for a repeat later in the evening. Both were records for the pay cabler.

The second season of “Homeland” is up significantly versus season one.

An hour earlier, “Dexter” drew 2.1 million and ended up with 2.6 million. For the first time, an original episode of “Homeland” defeated a new episode of “Dexter.”

The king of Sunday, however, was “The Walking Dead,” which attracted a whopping 15.2 million for the night. Over at HBO, the “Boardwalk Empire” finale drew 4.3 million over three airings.

Both “Homeland” and “Dexter” will conclude their seasons Dec. 16.
