The premiere of Game of Thrones’ seventh season set a series record of 10.1 million viewers tuning in to the live broadcast. Despite being off the air for three months longer than the usual one-year gap between seasons, it seems that the show has lost none of its momentum, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
权力的游戏第七季首集创下该系列收视新高，有线电视观众达1010万。此前，权力的游戏每年更新一季，今年播放时间延迟了三个月，但据《好莱坞报道》（The Hollywood Reporter）称，权力的游戏势头依旧迅猛。
According to HBO, “Dragonstone” beat last year’s season 6 finale (which had 8.89 million viewers) for the title of most watched Game of Thrones episode in the series’s history. That number also doesn’t factor in streaming views, which added another 6 million views toThrones’ total last night.
Looking back, it’s remarkable how the viewership of Game of Thrones has grown over the past seven years. The pilot episode, which aired in April 2011, brought in a comparatively tiny 2.22 million viewers. Wikipedia’s Game of Thrones episode page helpfully charts how that fan base has ballooned from year to year. With only six more episodes left in this condensed season, there’s a good chance HBO will continue to surpass itself in the coming weeks.
