This time around, the weekly overnight figures are brought to us by the TV by the Numbers crew. It is the biggest number of viewers reached so far, and the largest week-to-week increase as well: episode 8 garnered 2.7 million viewers in the initial airing (2.715 to be really precise).
To complete the picture, Deadline.com provides the combined number for the night: 3.6 million viewers, or an additional 900,000 for the repeat.
Hear Me Roar: I will go on a limb here and predict that by the end of the season the 3 million mark will be exceeded.
UPDATE: Lynette Rice reports that the average gross audience (linear plays, DVR and HBO On Demand) of the season to date is 8.3 million viewers.
