‘Game of Thrones’ second season finale attracts more than 4 million

Sunday’s second-season finale of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” clocked 4.2 million viewers at 9 p.m.  – 1.2 million ahead of the first-season finale crowd of 3 mil.

 At 4.2 million, the “GoT” episode’s 9 p.m. telecast was on par in the hour with ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition” (4.3 million), CBS’s “The Good Wife” rerun (4.6 million), and ahead of Fox’s repeats of “Family Guy” and “American Dad” (3.6 million), while running behind NBC’s “Miss USA Pageant (5.8 million).

 HBO estimates that, in its second season, “GoT” achieved an average gross audience of more than 10 million viewers per episode. That includes those watching episodes on the pay cable network, via on-demand, HBO Go, DVR, etc. This stat does not, however, weed out viewer duplication – people who might watch the episode more than once.
