“Homeland continues to prove its strength for Showtime, and is one of television’s most exciting, provocative and widely-discussed shows,” said network president David Nevins in a statement. ”The critical and audience reaction to Masters of Sex since its great launch has been incredibly gratifying.”

Homeland Season 3, while under critical fire for its latest episode, is averaging 6.5 million weekly viewers across all platforms through four weeks; while Masters of Sex is bringing about 5.4 million.

Both air new episodes this Sunday.
