Game of Thrones smashes HBO ratings record

Game of Thrones smashes HBO ratings record”

And no, this wasn't just a coincidence - Game of Thrones showrunner David Benioff confirmed during an after-episode behind-the-scenes featurette that he intentionally included the line.

To say that Game of Thrones is a popular TV show would be an understatement. If you don't have time to catch up on the most-recent season before Sunday's big premiere, here are six key points you should remember.

Wondering how to watch Game of Thrones season 7 episode 1 online now it's officially aired in the UK? The portal suffered similar problems at the time of the fourth season premiere of "Game of Thrones" in 2014, when the site crashed during the finale of the first season of "True Detective".

The 16.1 million number was up 50% from last year's April premiere, making it the most-watched premiere night in HBO's history.

In total, the season 7 premiere reached a combined audience of 16.1 million viewers across its linear TV airing, same day DVR playback, and streaming via HBO GO and HBO NOW.

Full Sunday cable ratings will be available Tuesday morning; the chart will be added to this post. The Game of Thrones states that you either claim the throne or you die.

This is the penultimate season of Game of Thrones, and the threat from the north has been becoming more real by the year.

There can be no doubt Ed's cameo as a Lannister soldier, who broke bread with the now unstoppable assassin Arya Stark, was a major boon for viewers. In fact, very few of them are actually officially supported by Kodi themselves - a telling sign. As you prepare for the episodes to come, you can go back to the iconic places and scenes with the most famous families in the Seven Kingdoms: "the Starks, Lannisters and Targaryens".

ESPN, on the strength of its Home Run Derby coverage, finished as the most watched network among adults 18-49, while Adult Swim was tops on a 24-hour basis in the demo, according to Nielsen.

"Game of Thrones is a cultural phenomenon across Russian Federation", said Denis Gorshkov, CEO at Amedia TV.
