‘Game Of Thrones’ Series Finale Breaks HBO Ratings Record

HBO has officially revealed the ratings for last night’s series finale of their blockbuster fantasy series Game of Thrones, breaking the network’s all-time record among all of its available platforms upon its premiere. A massive 19.3 million viewers tuned in to watch the series finale entitled, “The Iron Throne”.

Although critics and fans seem to have a very mixed overall reception to not just the series finale, but to the entire eighth and final season in general, that didn’t stop them from tuning into the episode to see how HBO’s blockbuster series concluded.

This exceeded last week’s episode that at the time, broke the initial record with 18.4 million viewers. With the telecast on its own sans the numbers from HBO GO and HBO NOW, it broke The Sopranos season 4 premiere record of 13.4 million when that aired on September 15, 2002.
