Showtime kicked off new seasons of two original series last night, with the season premiere of the final string of Dexter episodes and the series premiere of the new drama Ray Donovan (read Allison’s recap here). The Liev Schreiber-fronted series broke Showtime records, scoring the largest audience for an original series debut in the network’s history. The show’s 1.35 million take eclipsed the previous record holder, Homeland, which nabbed 1.08 million viewers in its season one debut.
Dexter returned strong for its eighth and final season, scoring 2.5 million viewers and marking the show’s largest premiere audience ever. That tops last season’s 2.4 million viewers, though it’s still down from the season seven finale’s 2.8 million viewers.
The gang gets grifted!
On tonight's episode, 'The Flash' puts the Fear of Grodd into viewers and Reverse-Flash begins building his Legion of Zoom.
"It really is life or death. You’re not even sure if it’s life or death in the present, life or death in the future, or life or death in the past, or a little bit of all three."
"I think people are going to be overjoyed with it and really salivating for next season."
A continually updated list of over 150 scripted broadcast and cable series, detailing which have been cancelled and renewed for the 2015 season so far.
Unfortunately for Fox, 'Gotham's' ratings bump didn't transfer over to 'The Following,' which was down slightly.
The vampires have taken over Manhattan, The Master is undergoing a "wondrous transformation," but the most frightening thing of all is still Corey Stoll's wig.
This is the way season one of 'Gotham' ends, not with a gang, but with a Riddler.
You've seen the finale, now learn more about it from actors Ben McKenzie, David Mazouz, Camren Bicondova and showrunners Bruno Heller, Danny Cannon and John Stephens.
Against the odds, 'Tyrant' is back for a second season. Will it win back those who gave up on it?
