Tuesday is the ratings day. And it is all a (golden) rose garden. Once more, TV by the Numbers strikes first:
Game of Thrones was Sunday’s top cable original with a 2.6 up from last week’s 2.4 adults 18-49 rating.
This best ever demo share (beating even the NBA playoffs of the night) is joined by the record number we regulary track – the number of viewers for the initial airing. This week the counter stopped at 4.87! The repeat added another 1.03 million for a nice, round first-night total of 5.90.
Hear Me Roar: I am actually surprised at the constant and steady rise week by week (given the rather flat S2). Positively, naturally, no complaints here :) Enjoy the good news.
