TV Ratings: ‘Game Of Thrones’ Returns To All-Time High
Game of Thrones Season 5 scored an average audience of 8 million viewers for HBO this weekend, its highest for the series, and up 17% from last season’s premiere. Only The Walking Dead on AMC has more viewers on cable.
In the demo – which apparently has little effect on a premium channel like HBO (since everyone is paying, it doesn’t matter how old they are) – the premiere had a 4.19 rating or 5.3 million viewers. This was up 14% from last year.
The first four episodes of Game of Thrones Season 5 leaked over the weekend. Looks like piracy did not win!
