Take the Black Podcast: Let’s focus on “The Long Night”
As traditional, lots of people watched the brand new episode of Game of Thrones this previous Sunday. How many? Per Variety, “The Long Night,” which featured the show-stopping Battle of Winterfell, drew 12.02 million for its preliminary broadcast on HBO. That places it simply beneath reside viewership for the season 7 finale, “The Dragon and the Wolf,” which clocked in 12.07 million viewers. Can Game of Thrones break that document with its ultimate three episodes? We’re taking a look at you, untitled collection finale.
If you rope in HBO GO and HBO NOW, viewership for “The Long Night” expands to 17.eight million viewers, which is a document, for Game of Thrones and for HBO. The most up-to-date episode of an HBO TV present to carry that title was the GoT season eight premiere, “Winterfell,” which collected 17.four million viewers throughout all of HBO’s platform on its first evening out. Since then, it’s climbed to over 38 million viewers.
“The Long Night” can also be essentially the most tweeted-about scripted TV episode of all time, so HBO is breaking information throughout. (Although I’m curious that each outlet reporting that qualifies that it’s solely scripted TV we’re speaking about, so I assume there’s some unscripted present that was tweeted about extra. Not certain which one, although. I’m gonna guess some form of Bachelor.)
So in conclusion, lots of people watch Game of Thrones. How was your day?
