Borgias Sets Showtime Record!

Borgias Breaks Records

Oh Jeremy Irons, is there nothing you can't do??

Looks like there isn't, because the Irons period drama Borgias drew in the highest number of viewers for a Showtime drama… in SEVEN years!

That's impressive! The show brought in a whopping 1.5 Million viewers between the premiere and the encore. It even beat out Shameless (982k), and United States of Tara (881k)!

It's even getting decent reviews!

So congrats are in order for the cast and crew! Great job, guys!

    Yeah. Project masculinity.

    I liked it but like The Tudors more. It had to set the stage, maybe it will get better. Will definitely watch.
