The season five finale of Showtime's popular drama series Dexter cut a sizable chunk out of Sunday night's TV audience in route to its most-watched season to date.
The Dexter season five finale drew 2.5 million viewers, matching last year's network record-setting audience for the series' season four finale, according to Showtime officials. Dexter's season finale audience tally was 40% above its season five premiere episode numbers, according to the network.
An additional 11 p.m. showing garnered 401,000 viewers. Once On Demand and Live+7 viewers are in, Showtime estimates that the Dexter season five finale could deliver a series record six million viewers.
Overall, season five of Dexter is expected to average a series-high 5 million viewers, according to network officials.
