Game of Thrones Episode 8.03 Ratings Hit Record 17.8 Million

-

Sunday night’s episode of Game of Thrones hit a new series high in gross audience for the night, with 17.8 million viewers watching the battle of Winterfell in the episode entitled “The Long Night.” The episode ran an hour and 22 minutes. The Game of Thrones Episode 8.03 ratings include two linear airings from Sunday night and streaming on HBO NOW and HBO GO.

The 9:00 p.m. airing alone amassed 12 million viewers, marking a season high for the time period broadcast. The previous gross audience high was 17.4 million viewers for the premiere episode of the season. That episode has now surpassed 38 million viewers.

HBO says that Barry also reached a series high in both gross audience and initial broadcast with 2.5 million viewers for the night and just over 2 million viewers at 10:30 p.m. (5% above the previous high set last week). The gross audience includes two linear airings from Sunday night and streaming on HBO NOW and HBO GO.

Game of Thrones Episode 8.04 will debut on Sunday, May 5th at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) and has a running time of an hour and 18 minutes.

The power players of the Seven Kingdoms have gone to great lengths to get to where they are. All have made sacrifices, experienced betrayal and taken great risks for the throne — some have already lost the battle.
