Dexter keeps getting better and better, and the audience knows it. The show continues to break ratings records as the season goes on. Last Sunday's episode 6, for example, broke Showtime's record for highest ratings – which was set the week prior by Dexter episode 5. Frankly, I'm not surprised. This season is spectacular. Dexter found a mentor who isn't dead! Deb can't catch a break! Dexter's marriage is on the rocks! John Lithgow! I have loved Dexter since season 1, but this season has turned me into a fan girl.
Oh right, the nitty-gritty. Episode 6 had nearly 2 million viewers – and that was just for the premiere 9 PM airing. The previous record set by episode five was merely 1.7 million viewers.
