'Game of Thrones' Season Premiere Breaks HBO Ratings Record

Maisie Williams, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner and Isaac Hempstead-Wright at the season 8 premiere of Game of Thrones.

It was not only a bug night for Game of Thrones fans everywhere this past Sunday, but also a huge night for HBO. It is going to be a sad day for everyone when one of our favourite shows comes to an end. 

The season 8 premiere on Sunday April 4th of Game of Thrones was the biggest broadcast in HBO history and the most-watched scripted entertainment program of 2019. In terms of views and streaming, the last premiere surpassed the season 7 premiere and finale episodes by around a million viewers. We absolutely can't wait for the remaining five episodes left in season 8 before the show wraps up. Watch the video above for the full story!
