"Game Of Thrones" Viewership Down From Final Season Debut, Up From Season 8

  • Deadline
On the cusp of the battle of all battles on Game Of Thrones, Easter Sunday’s “ A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” second episode of the final season of the HBO blockbuster had a lot of drinking, a lot of talk about death and some mixed messages viewershipwise.

Coming off the sky high Dragon flying numbers of the long anticipated April 14 debut, the just over 1 hour long April 21 episode snared 10.3 million viewers on HBO proper. While down about 12.5% in terms of those watching on linear TV from last week’s “Winterfell,” the fifth to last episode of GoT ever is actually the fourth most watched episode of the series ever.

Now, that’s before we get the digital viewership off HBOGo and HBO Now. Telling of how people actually watch the small screen in 2019, that additional data pushed the Season 8 opener to 17.4 million, the largest viewership GoT has ever had.
