‘Game of Thrones’ finale Episode sets new viewership record

The final episode of “Game of Thrones” brought in a series record of 19.3 million viewers.

The finale, titled “The Iron Throne,” broke the record set by last weekend’s episode, “The Bells,” for which 18.4 million viewers tuned in.

The viewership for “The Iron Throne” includes 13.6 million people who watched the episode on HBO at 9 p.m. Sunday night, making it the most-watched telecast in the network’s history, according to HBO.

The rest were viewers who watched an encore presentation, or who streamed the show with the HBO Go or HBO Now apps.

Despite being off the air for three months longer than the usual one-year gap between seasons, it seems that the show has lost none of its momentum.

The pilot episode, which aired in April 2011, brought in a comparatively tiny 2.22 million viewers. Wikipedia’s Game of Thrones episode page helpfully charts how that fan base has ballooned from year to year.
