There’s a good reason why Game of Thrones crashed HBO Go last night: an estimated 6.6 million viewers tuned in to watch the Season 4 premiere of the hit series, the largest audience the premium channel has received since The Sopranos ended in 2007.
Factor in the premiere’s two reruns, and a total of about 8.2 million people watched the show. The Season 4 audience also eclipsed the 4.4 million viewers who tuned in to Game of Thrones’ Season 3 premiere, Reuters reports.
Sunday’s record beat out the previous high of 5.5 million viewers who tuned in to the Season 3 finale. The war-centric fantasy is slowly becoming one of HBO’s most popular shows ever: according to a Vulture chart, the only show that received better ratings was The Sopranos.
