Claire Danes will be a guest on The Colbert Report February 15th!
The finale of Showtime’s hugely talked about new drama “Homeland,” a favorite of critics and even President Obama, attracted the biggest audience for the series so far and the biggest for any first-year show in Showtime’s history.
The network announced Monday that Sunday night’s first play of the finale had reached 1.1 million viewers, with just over two million watching when Sunday night replays were included. The finale was up 58 percent over its premiere episode.
The audience figure is likely to more than double when Showtime takes into account all the other ways it will make the finale available this week, either through repeats on the network, on-demand plays or streamed versions online. The series has averaged 4.2 million viewers.
