Like a pack of wildlings scaling the Wall, the Game of Thrones ratings continue to go up. This week the initial audience hit a series-record 5.5 million, according to TVByTheNumbers. This included a 2.9 rating, also a series high. This puts Thrones only 30k viewers behind True Blood‘s all-time high number of 5.53 million.
The 11 PM repeat added 1.27 million viewers for a total of 6.77 million on the night, which tops the 6.68 million that watched on premiere night. Even more impressive, the season 3 premiere total was accumulated over three separate airings and this new record was set with only two.
Winter Is Coming: Great news! This show continues to defy expectations in the ratings. Is 6 million by season end in reach? At this point, all things seem possible.
