Just like last year around this time, we take a look at the Game of Thrones ratings up till now, compared to some other shows. Without further ado, here is the chart:
What can we gather from the data collected? Well, for one, the ratings have been pretty much flat, as you have noticed from week to week – this steady trend is comparable to the long stretch of episodes 3 through 7 last year. The show caught up in ratings with Boardwalk Empire by the end of the first season, and jumped ahead of it this year, keeping a full million difference and more. True Blood, lagging behind as far as the first seasons of the respective shows are concerned, is level with Thrones this year so far, with the difference being that the Southern vampire mystery series gets longer runs of 12 episodes per season. At the S2 6th episode mark, TB reached 4 million viewers exactly, with 6 more episodes to go. Game of Thrones has 4 episodes left this season – last year, the final four instalments brought about a total rise of about half a million viewers. A feat that can hopefully be repeated this time around as well.
Let us know your own predictions for the rest of the season in the comments.
