TV Ratings: House of the Dragon Is HBOs Biggest Premiere Ever

The premiere of HBOs House of the Dragon taken in a record-setting audience on Sunday.

The Game of Thrones prequel, that is go about 200 years prior to the previous series and targets the Targaryen family, drew nearly 10 million viewers across all platforms in the usa, HBO says. Thats the largest series premiere in HBOs history.

The premiere also was the very best series launch up to now on HBO Max in the usa, Latin America and the so-called EMEA region Europe, the center East and Africa. (Per usual, streaming figures arent broken out.)

It had been wonderful to see an incredible number of Game of Thrones fans return around to Westeros yesterday evening, HBO and HBO Max chief content officer Casey Bloys said in a statement. House of the Dragon features a remarkably talented cast and crew who poured their core in to the production, and were ecstatic with viewers positive response. We anticipate sharing with audiences what else George [R.R. Martin], Ryan [Condal] and Miguel [Sapochnik] have waiting for you for them this year.

The House of the Dragon also earned the biggest single-night audience for HBO because the series finale of its parent show drew 19.3 million viewers in-may 2019. The very best single-night tally since that time was season two finale of Euphoria in February, which had 6.6 million cross-platform viewers.

House of the Dragon also eclipsed the audience for the series debut of Game of Thrones (2.22 million same-day viewers, in accordance with Nielsen) in 2011 though its extremely difficult to create a completely like-to-like comparison to both shows. HBO had a more limited streaming presence in 2011 and didnt even regularly report multi-platform viewing at that time. And, needless to say, Game of Thrones was not used to TV viewers then, whereas House of the Dragon reaches stand on the massively successful shoulders of its predecessor.

Full weekend ratings, including an improved read of House of the Dragons on-air audience vs. those that watched on streaming, will undoubtedly be available Tuesday morning.
