The initial viewership numbers of the week are in. With 6.82 million pairs of eyes watching the first airing, the fourth episode of Game of Thrones S5 matched the performance of the second one, which constitutes a slight rise from last week. It looks like Game of Thrones won the night once more.
Overall, the numbers for episodes two through four have been essentially flat. Many will await next week with eager anticipation to see what the viewership of the first non-leaked episode this season is going to be. There should be an uptick, common sense tells us, but just how big of an effect there will be I’m not sure about.
