So much for all those people who swore they were done watching the show, June 14's season finale was watched by more people than any other episode in the show's history.
According to Moviefone :
the June 14 Episode 10, "Mother's Mercy"
-- which killed off a ton of people and blinded one of our badass BFFs -- had 8.11 million viewers. That makes it the most-watched GOT episode to date. And that was even opposite the NBA Finals Game 5!
The Season 5 premiere
held the record before this with just barely 8 million viewers. Episode 1, "The Wars to Come," also had a series high 4.2 rating, which is still slightly above "Mother's Mercy's" 4.1 rating. But who really cares about that, since that 18-49 demo is more important to shows that run ads. The bigger number is the overall audience, and with 8.11 million in the U.S., that's the most for HBO's dragon drama so far.
