Last night’s season finale was the most watched episode in the history of the series.
According to HBO over 12.1 million viewers tuned in for the live broadcast of “The Dragon and the Wolf” episode.
That number rises further to 16.5 million if streaming services like HBO Go are included.
“Game of Thrones” had broken its own viewership records four times across the season’s seven episodes.
