"Game Of Thrones" Viewership Down From Final Season Debut, Up From Season 8

  • Deadline
On the cusp of the battle of all battles on Game Of Thrones, Easter Sunday’s “ A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” second episode of the final season of the HBO blockbuster had a lot of drinking, a lot of talk about death and some mixed messages viewershipwise.

Coming off the sky high Dragon flying numbers of the long anticipated April 14 debut, the just over 1 hour long April 21 episode snared 10.3 million viewers on HBO proper. While down about 12.5% in terms of those watching on linear TV from last week’s “Winterfell,” the fifth to last episode of GoT ever is actually the fourth most watched episode of the series ever.

Now, that’s before we get the digital viewership off HBOGo and HBO Now. Telling of how people actually watch the small screen in 2019, that additional data pushed the Season 8 opener to 17.4 million, the largest viewership GoT has ever had.

“When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.”

-Cersei Lannister

With the final season of Game of Thrones only days away, it’s time to break down who has the best chance to sit on the Iron Throne.

Since the show began in 2011, every fan speculates who will end up on the Iron Throne. While no one can figure it out, it’s been a damn good time to theorize, so let’s take a look at some of the best choices for who will reign supreme at the end of Game of Thrones.

‘Game Of Thrones’ Final Season Sees New Alliances, New Divisions & Cryptic Honesty In 2nd Episode

‘Game Of Thrones’ Final Season Sees New Alliances, New Divisions & Cryptic Honesty In 2nd Episode
Spoiler Alert: This story contains details of tonight’s second episode of Game Of Thrones Season 8. Btw – we’ll be reviewing and recapping every episode of the final season of the HBO series right up to and including the May 19 finale.

If there truly is honor among thieves, then the “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” second episode of the final season of Game of Thrones made it clear that dishonorable and desperate men and women will make any and every alliance they have to when decimation is truly coming from an Army of the Dead.

Or in the words of a suddenly contrite Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau): “This goes beyond loyalty. This about survival.”

Opening with the interrogation teased last week, Lannister faces Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) to quickly admit that Cersei (Lena Headey) lied when she promised in Season 7 to send troops to assist in the defense

Game Of Thrones’ Highest Paid Cast Members Have Been Revealed

Game of Thrones is back – and we couldn’t be more excited about it.

As if the Internet wasn’t foreboding enough with the imminent threat of Avengers: Endgame leaks, HBO’s hit fantasy series has reclaimed its rightful spot at the forefront of television, bringing about a tidal wave of wild fan theories and potential spoilers about the Night King and his unclear origins.

Yes, it’s fair to say that Game of Thrones mania has swept the nation – nay, the world – and as the much beloved show gears up for its sure to be epic conclusion, we’re now learning of just how much money its stars are bringing home this season. Actually, these numbers are reportedly from season 7, but we imagine that the actors are still earning just as much, if not more, for this last batch of episodes.

‘Game of Thrones': Why Jon Snow Is the True Targaryen Heir Instead of Daenerys

‘Game of Thrones': Why Jon Snow Is the True Targaryen Heir Instead of Daenerys
(Spoilers ahead: this post contains some spoilers for the season 8 premiere of “Game of Thrones”)

As we head into the final season of “Game of Thrones,” there’s one question on everyone’s minds, the same question that has been on everyone’s minds since the beginning of this whole thing: who will be the one sitting on the Iron Throne once this thing is all over?

As we move into the final season it looks like a three-way battle between Cersei (Lena Headey), Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and the Night King. Because at this point those are the only people left with a declared interest in ruling — or in the Night King’s case, murdering every living thing on the whole continent. Sansa Stark and Euron Greyjoy — and maybe Tyrion? — could be considered secondary contestants at this point, but it’s tough to imagine any of them making any kind of legitimate play.

Elmo Tries To Bring Respect To Westeros In ‘Sesame Street’-‘Game of Thrones’ Crossover

Elmo Tries To Bring Respect To Westeros In ‘Sesame Street’-‘Game of Thrones’ Crossover
With Westeros at war, Sesame Street‘s Elmo is doing his best to bring a little “respect” to Game of Thrones.

Earlier this week, HBO — which airs both series — launched a crossover, kid-friendly PSA. The video shows Elmo visiting King’s Landing for a sit-down with Cersei and Tyrion, while the two bicker.

As Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey trade insults, Elmo crashes into their world and offers to mediate.

The Sesame Street character informs them: “You two need to respect each other.”

The furry red puppet goes on to say: “When Elmo has a problem with his friends like Abby, or Cookie Monster, Elmo doesn’t get upset. Elmo listens and learns from what they have to say.”

“If we stop fighting and work together, we can be stronger.” Tyrion responds. “I’m willing to learn and listen if you are.”

Initially Cersei isn’t on board. But she

Will the main 7 ‘Game of Thrones’ stars all get Emmy nominations?

Will the main 7 ‘Game of Thrones’ stars all get Emmy nominations?
The massive “Game of Thrones” cast has undergone numerous permutations over eight seasons, but for a while now the show and storylines have focused on a core septet of stars, all of whom have been in Westeros since the beginning: Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner. All seven have never been nominated at the Emmys in the same year before, but could this final season be the lucky one for them?

If you go by our odds, yes. All seven are predicted to make the cut this year across four categories, Best Drama Actress, Best Drama Actor, Best Drama Supporting Actress and Best Drama Supporting Actor.

Of them, the biggest lock of locks is Dinklage, who’s going for his record-breaking eighth nomination and fourth win in the supporting category; he’s currently in a tie at three with Aaron Paul

Elmo teaches Tyrion & Cersei about respect in Sesame Street Got parody

  • JoBlo
Although there are still five episodes until the much-anticipated series finale of Game of Thrones, it turns out that we don't need to bother watching any further as Sesame Street has already shown us how the series will end - with Elmo teaching Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Queen Cersei (Lena Headey) about respect and thereby bringing peace to Westeros. That's all well and good for humans and muppets, but what about the White Walkers? Respect brings us together, and if anyone can…

Game of Thrones Meets Sesame Street: Can Elmo Solve Westeros' Problems?

Westeros officially has an 11th-hour contender for the Iron Throne: Sesame Street‘s Elmo.

In a video released on Thursday by HBO (which airs both Game of Thrones and Sesame Street), the beloved red puppet pays an unexpected visit to the Lannisters, interrupting a tense conversation between Cersei (Lena Headey) and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage).

“Elmo thinks that you two need to respect each other,” he bluntly informs the bickering siblings. “When Elmo has a problem with his friends like Abby or Cookie Monster, Elmo doesn’t get upset. Elmo listens and learns from what they have to say.”

'Game of Thrones' Final Season: 15 Key Quotes From "Winterfell"

"Dark wings, dark words." It's one of the great quotes from HBO's Game of Thrones, signaling the dark omens baked into the words that ride on the backs of ravens, sprung from the minds of the sprawling cast: Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and so many others.

Throughout the final season, The Hollywood Reporter's Westeros beat reporter Josh Wigler (that's me!) will round up some of the most important lines of dialogue featured in the past week's episode of Thrones, offering context and divining clues about the hidden meaning in ...

‘Game of Thrones’ Episode 2 Sneak Peek: Lady Mormont Armors Up as Tensions Rise in the North – Photos
The North isn’t going to mess around any more, if photos from Sunday’s upcoming episode of “Game of Thrones’ is any indication. Written by Bryan Cogman and directed by David Nutter, who also helmed the premiere, Episode 2 will run 58 minutes — still one of the shorter episodes of the season — and preview photos tease full-tilt preparations for war.

In the long-awaited premiere last week, Winterfell became quite the crowded place as everyone and the Mother of Dragons converged at the Northern hold. Although several of these reunions dredged up bitterness and regret, everyone somehow remained civil, even Arya (Maisie Williams) and The Hound (Rory McCann).

However, the first meeting between Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) went less smoothly, seeing as this is when he discovered that she sent his father and brother off to a dragon-crispy fate. Clearly troubled, Sam also revealed to his pal
