If you haven't watched Game of Thrones yet, stop reading and find an episode NOW!
The HBO fantasy series ended its second season with more viewers than ever before. 4.2 million people tuned in during the first airing at 9 p.m., which is a 38% increase from the 3 million that tuned into first season's finale.
More and more people are becoming fans as more and more episodes air too. To give you an idea of the show's growing success, the series premiered with 2.2 million people watching. After including views from DVR, HBO GO, and HBO on Demand, an average of 9.3 million people watched each episode the rest of the first season, but that figure has grown to 10.3 million this year!
The finale is the highest rated episode so far and the series has become the third most-watched series in HBO history.
We're impressed, but not that surprised. It's only a matter of time until we're all begging HBO for a movie!
Were U satisfied with last night's extra long finale? We won't give out any serious spoilers in case people are behind on their viewing, but shiz is about to go down at The Wall and we absolutely cannot wait for season 3!
