A little show called Game of Thrones is currently in the midst of its eighth and final season, and it is very popular. The ratings for Sunday’s Episode 4 have arrived–and they are massive.
17.2 million people watched “The Last of the Starks” across all platforms–including standard television and digital networks such as HBO Go and HBO Now, according to TV Line. Some portion of those people noticed the coffee cup, which has since been digitally erased (but not forgotten).
Episode 4’s 17.2 million viewers is down slightly from Episode 3’s 17.8 million viewers, which is the most-watched episode of the final season so far. Episode 2 has been the least-watched, with 15.9 million viewers. You can see a breakdown of viewers by episode below.
Episode 6, which is the finale of the entire Game of Thrones series, is likely to draw the biggest crowd, but whether or not it cracks 20 million remains to be seen.
So far, the four aired episodes have been together tallied more than 68 million views, and that doesn’t count all members of groups or families watching together and views from other means.
