This isn't a huge surprise - but it's still impressive
Last night's Game of Thrones premiere was the most watched episode in the show's history - with 17.4 million people tuning in. It was also HBO's biggest streaming night ever.
The previous record for the show was the season seven finale, which nabbed 16.9 million viewers in August 2017. Viewership for Sunday's premiere was upmore than a million viewers from the season seven premiere in 2017.
