The sixth episode of Season 3 drew 2.75 million viewers the night it aired. That managed to top the previous record of 2.74 million for the Season 2 finale.
Season 3 continues to build in its momentum, with episode 5 “The Yoga Play” also bringing in then-record ratings. After a critically divisive start to Season 3, the Showtime series seems to have found its balance with audiences as Carrie and Saul’s quest to takes Javadi down reaches its peak.
Largely absent from Season 3 has been Damian Lewis‘s Nicholas Brody, proving that the show can still exist without its leading man and bring in great ratings. It will be interesting to see how his introduction back into the main storyline will affect ratings if and when that takes place.
“Homeland” airs Sundays on Showtime at 9 p.m. ET.
