"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.

Emilia Clarke's Game of Thrones "Family Portrait" Will Make Your Day

Emilia Clarke's Game of Thrones
Emilia Clarke is a gift to the internet. Hot on the heels of her Game of Thrones costar Sophie Turner posting one of the best Instagram videos ever—she was teasing her TV sister and real-life best friend Maisie Williams over a certain sex scene—Clarke took to Instagram to gift the world with a "family portrait." "The family portrait," Clarke captioned the photo below featuring herself and costar Kit Harington. Harington, and here's your spoiler warning, plays Jon Snow, the nephew and love interest to Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones. Clarke included several hashtags, including "#jeneregretterien," which is French for "I regret nothing." She also included...

‘Game of Thrones': Did Bran Just Hint That the White Walkers Will Win the War?

‘Game of Thrones': Did Bran Just Hint That the White Walkers Will Win the War?
(This post contains spoilers for season 8, episode 2 of “Game of Thrones”)

After the way the first episode of the final season of “Game of Thrones” ended, I kinda expected that Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) would get his big one-on-one moment with Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) right at the beginning of this week’s episode, but it was not to be. But finally about ten minutes into the episode we got the big scene.

But it took some doing for Jaime to survive that long. The conversation only happened because Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) spoke on Jaime’s behalf when Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) seemed intent on murdering him. Brienne’s endorsement swayed Sansa (Sophie Turner), and that in turn swayed Dany.

And so we finally got the confrontation we’d been waiting on since Jaime shoved Bran out a window at the end of the very first episode of “Game of Thrones.

Emilia Clarke on Daenerys’ Cold Reaction to Jon Snow Reveal: ‘We’re Up for the Same Promotion’
(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Sunday’s “Game of Thrones,” titled “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms”)

Jon Snow doesn’t have the best timing.

Just before the Night King and his Army of the Dead is about to invade Wintefell in episode 2 of “Game of Thrones,” Jon Snow finally spilled the beans to his new beau-but-also-aunt Daenerys, that his real name is Aegon Targaryen and that he, not her, has the rightful claim to the Iron Throne. But before the two had a chance to talk it out, the Night King and his Army of Dead showed up mere footsteps away from Winterfell, tabling the discussion for after the battle… assuming the White Walkers haven’t turned everyone into a wight by then.

Emilia Clarke said that whole “Dany is Jon’s aunt” thing isn’t the biggest issue with her. “The related thing, to her, is so normal,

'Game of Thrones' and 'Avengers' to Deliver a Deadly Pop Culture Weekend

What do the warriors of Westeros have in common with Earth's mightiest? Both armies boast prominent heroes named "Stark," for one thing. For another, both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and HBO's Game of Thrones stand on the edge of world-ending stakes — and they're both about to sustain significant, heartbreaking casualties as a result.

As Game of Thrones approaches the midpoint of its final season, Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and their allies are set to battle the White Walkers at Winterfell, the climactic confrontation first set in motion all the way back in ...

Chewbacca Actor Still Wants A Solo: A Star Wars Story Sequel

Solo: A Star Wars Story unfortunately didn’t make the splash Lucasfilm were hoping for when it blasted into cinemas last May, with the Han Solo prequel ending up as comfortably the lowest-grossing Star Wars movie ever. Clearly, there were plans to build a franchise around Alden Ehrenreich’s young smuggler, but it seems this has been put on hold since the spinoff underperformed.

Yet, Solo still has an awful lot of fans out there who thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to see a sequel. One of them is Chewbacca himself, actor Joonas Suotamo. The star, who’s portrayed Chewie since The Force Awakens, shared a snap of himself in costume alongside Ehrenreich on the Solo set and in his caption, he encouraged fans to make some noise if they want to see more of Han and Chewie together in a Solo 2.

So Even Daenerys Targaryen Is Cracking Jokes About Kit Harington's Height Now, Huh
Kit Harington might not be what you'd call "statuesque," but it doesn't make him any less hot. While there has been some debate about the Game of Thrones star's actual height, both Google and IMDb list the 32-year-old as being 5'8".

So, Ok. Kit may not be the tall drink of water that some of his costars happen to be. But thanks to a sexy accent, sultry stare, and gorgeous set of curls, we barely even notice.

Reminder: Rhaegar Targaryen's Death Basically Caused Everything on Game of Thrones

Reminder: Rhaegar Targaryen's Death Basically Caused Everything on Game of Thrones
Rhaegar Targaryen is arguably the most important Game of Thrones character, and until the season seven finale, we had never even seen him. His death marked the end of a long and complicated rebellion full of forbidden love and a plethora of fighting and murder. If you're wondering how or why he died, or perhaps you've forgotten, we are here to help, because he's definitely an important piece of the Westeros puzzle.

Rhaegar is the eldest son of "Mad" King Aerys II, making him heir to the Iron Throne and Daenerys's oldest brother. The Targaryens are allies with the Lannisters way back when at this time, and Cersei always thought she might marry Rhaegar, but the two families' peace falls apart when the Mad King instead marries Rhaegar to Elia Martell of Dorne, with whom he has two children. But everything really falls apart in the Seven Kingdoms when Rhaegar

Emilia Clarke Explains Daenerys Targaryen's Reaction to That Huge Game of Thrones Bombshell
We need to talk about Daenerys Targaryen. In "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms," the second episode of Game of Thrones' final season, Dany (Emilia Clarke) had quite a few moments to shine…and step in it, depending on how you look at the situations. When she wasn't putting Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) on trial, Daenerys sat down with Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) in an effort to thaw the chilly nature between them. It…didn't really work. "It was actually quite bizarre because I only see Emilia on screen and it's like, kind of a fan moment. I mean, I know her in real life, but as Daenerys I only see her on screen. It was really, really fun to work with her,"...

‘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’ Season 8 Episode 2 Leaks Online Ahead of Its Premiere

As has happened many times before, much to the chagrin of HBO, the latest “Game of Thrones” episode has leaked online ahead of its official premiere. Last week’s Season 8 finale made its way onto the internet four hours early due to a DirecTV error, whereas the second episode began streaming early on Amazon Prime Video in Germany.

It then made its way to other corners of the internet, ditto details of what transpires in it — which is to say, be careful on social media until actually watching tonight’s episode directed by David Nutter. The helmer is a “Game of Thrones” veteran, having won an Emmy for directing Season 5 finale “Mother Mercy” and also taking the reins on such well-received episodes as “The Rains of Castamere,” “A Man Without Honor,” and last week’s “Winterfell.” He will also direct Episode 4 of this eighth and final season, bringing his time

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.
