Showtime's psychosexual horror series "Penny Dreadful" debuted to 1.44 million viewers for its premiere outing (including encores) on Sunday night, with 62% in the key demo.
That's one of the network's best debuts in years, topping both "Homeland" and "Masters of Sex" which scored 1.38 million on their debut nights.
The 'Penny' premiere also scored a further 900,000 viewers through official channels thanks to two weeks of online previews, and over 500,000 non-Showtime viewers through other non-official channels like Youtube.
Finally, the network has unveiled a "This Season On" trailer showcasing what's to come over the next few episodes. You can check it out below:
