Game of Thrones Ratings Reach Record 18.4M for The Bells

-

The Game of Thrones ratings hit another record on Sunday, as the penultimate episode, titled “The Bells,” was watched by 18.4 million viewers across HBO’s platforms (linear, HBO GO and HBO NOW), exceeding the previous series high of 17.8 million viewers two weeks ago for the episode “The Long Night,” focusing on the Battle of Winterfell.

In addition to the series high for the night, the 9:00 p.m. airing reached a time-period high for Game of Thrones, with an average of 12.5 million viewers, surpassing the season seven finale of 12.1 million viewers. Season eight of Game of Thrones is averaging 43 million viewers per episode in gross audience, an increase of more than ten million viewers when compared to season seven.

The VEEP series finale, airing just before 11:00 p.m., reached a season-high 1.1 million viewers. The first replay and viewing on HBO’s streaming services brought total viewing to 1.6 million viewers, also a season high.

The Game of Thrones series finale will debut on Sunday, May 19th at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) and has a running time of an hour and 20 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.

Directors for Game of Thrones Season 8 include creators David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, plus David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik. Writers for the season are David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill.

Returning series regulars include Emmy and Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), Rory McCann (Sandor “The Hound” Clegane), and Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion).
