It didn’t have to face The Walking Dead this week, but Homeland still had the competition of the NFL on NBC. Nonetheless, the Showtime series pulled in 2.1 million viewers on Sunday to hit a new Season 3 high. That result, up a tick from a previous cycle high on October 27 of 2 million, also made episode 11 of the current season’s Homeland the top show on premium cable. Overall, the penultimate Homeland of the current season had 2.7 million viewers over two plays on Sunday. Despite some critical knocks, Season 3 of Homeland has proven the most successful the show has had. It is currently up 17% on average over Season 2. The Claire Danes starrer wasn’t the only Showtime series to hit a new high this past weekend. Freshman Masters of Sex drew 1.23 million viewers for a season high of its own. The second to last episode of the renewed show’s first season rose 15% over last week. Overall for the night, Masters of Sex had 1.5 million watching.
