Game of Thrones Is the Most Popular Show Ever on HBO

Average rating beats The Sopranos

The adventures of Tyrion Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow (among other characters, most of whom are probably dead now) have officially beaten out another HBO series with a lot of sudden deaths: The Sopranos. HBO confirmed that the series now boasts an average gross viewership (across multiple airings of each show) of 18.4 million viewers, edging out Tony and Carmella's 18.2 million average.
