HBO has just released its audience stats for the premiere of Game of Thrones season 8, which the network says drew a record 17.4 million viewers Sunday night -- beating both the 16.1 million viewers who caught the season 7 premiere and the 16.9 million who tuned in for last season's finale.
The trend when it comes to HBO's landmark fantasy series has been for viewership figures to basically go in one direction from one season to the next -- up and to the right -- and it seems that trend is definitely going to hold true as the series prepares to take its bow after only five more episodes.
