“Game of Thrones” Finale Up

The season finale of Game of Thrones delivered huge ratings for HBO last evening.  The extended episode pulled in 4.2 million viewers during its inaugural broadcast at 9 p.m. ET. With additional airings that night, the episode already averages a total 5.1 million viewers.

Those numbers will go up as DVR viewership is factored in as well as on-demand and encore broadcasts this week.

Sunday night’s ratings mark a 38 percent jump over the first season’s finale. That episode brought in 3 million, a series record at the time, after growing all season from its 2.2 million series premiere.

The series has had solid ratings all year and is already renewed for a third season.
