Great news! The latest episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, “The Ghost of Harrenhal” has not only climbed a tenth of a point to a 1.9 share and 3.9 million viewers, but it also tied the NBA playoffs to lead Sunday night cable. Adding the second airing that night pushes it to a 4.7 million final on the day.
It’d be terrific to see it crack 2.0, 4 million, and 5 million respectively by the time we see the season’s final episode, “Valar Morghulis”. You have to think the buzz for the 9th episode, or at least after it, should do it, but we’ll have to wait and see.
