Californication and Dexter Premiere to Series Highs


Showtime reached series high ratings on Sunday night with Dexter, opening its fourth season to the tune of 1.5 million viewers while Californication kicked off its third season with 821,000 viewers. Dexter was up 25% from its third season premiere and Californication gained 57% from its second season opener. No word on whether Californication's horrifying images of Kathleen Turner seducing Evan Handler should affect next week's ratings.
