“Dexter” Impressive in Return October 3, 2007 3:54 pm

Posted by Rosario T. Calabria in Cable TV Ratings, Dexter, News, Nielsen TV Ratings, Showtime.

The second season premiere of Showtime’s Dexter returned in impressive fashion, securing a record as the networks first drama series to open a season with over one million viewers.

1.09 million viewers tuned in for the 9:00 p.m. premiere, up 67% over the series premiere last year and up more than 40% over the season one average of 624,000 viewers.

An 11:00 p.m. repeat drea another 414,000 viewers, bringing the nightly audience to 1.42 million viewers.

In other season premiere news, Brotherhood was viewed by 371,000 viewers, a two-fold increase over last year’s premiere and well above its season-one average of 207,000.  But the weak retention from its lead-in (only 34%) was a bit disappointing.

Dexter is creepy, funny and constantly surprising. Did anybody see the headbutt of Doakes coming?
