Ratings Climb Still Higher

According to TV by the Numbers, the latest episode “The Prince of Winterfell has ticked up to match its series high of 3.9 million viewers and 2.0 share, narrowly missing beating the second round of the NBA playoffs as top cable show on Sunday. The second showing later that evening added just over a million more viewers and a 0.5 share, taking it to just shy of 5 million viewers in all.

Will “Blackwater” get us over the 4 million and 5 million marks respectively? Given all the promotion from HBO positioning this episode as something of an event, I think odds are good at least a few subscribers are going to tune in to see what the fuss is all about.
