Last night was the most watched episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones… ever.
Pulling in 4.4 million viewers for the 9PM premiere itself and another 6.7 viewers in later showings the show completely dominated the season 2 record set last year. These numbers also fail to tally the HBOGo viewers and number of viewers per TV so you can imagine just how many fans are actually out there.
The show had to battle the Easter holiday and went head to head with The Walking Dead. Thrones will also have to compete with Mad Men when that show premieres this month also.
It looks like HBO’s massive publicity campaign worked rather well this time around! As the show continues to grow we’ll be here to get you all of the latest news on your new (or old) favorite series.
