It is the end of Game of Thrones two days back and the most watched TV series in the history of mankind has come to an end. Despite a lot of criticism and disappointment over the last season’s script, the finale of the Game of Thrones drew a staggering number of viewers.
The final episode of 'Game Of Thrones' drew in over 19.3 million viewers in the US, setting a new series record, television network HBO announced.
The record was previously held by last week's episode, which was watched by over 18.4 million viewers.
"Season 8 of Game of Thrones is averaging 44.2 million viewers per episode in the gross audience, an increase of more than 10 million viewers when compared to season 7," HBO further said in a statement.
The record for the most-watched US television show is still held by the Korean War comedy MASH, which attracted nearly 106 million viewers for the final episode in 1983.
