Yes, that's right - 13.6 million people tuned in to HBO itself to watch the final Thrones episode.

In general, though, just think about how few shows generate more than 10 million weekly viewers - especially now that Game of Thrones and The Big Bang Theory are done and The Walking Dead is a shell of what it was at one point.

Jon Snow was the most talked about character during the series finale, as revealed in new data from Twitter Canada, with Bran Stark, Daenerys Targaryen's last dragon Drogon, Sansa Stark and Daenerys herself following behind, respectively.

As impressive as the aforementioned viewer figures are, there's another record here that is even more impressive and unlikely to be topped at any point in the near future. In 2002, HBO was still years away from launching HBO Go and HBO Now as post-live viewing options for fans, so viewers pretty much had to tune in live.

DID YOU WATCH the finale of Game of Thrones?

The final season of the fantasy saga faced sharp criticism among its fans, with over 1.2 million people having signed an online petition, asking HBO to remake the last season 8 "with competent writers".

The series finale of Game of Thrones also beat one of Thrones' own records, although not a record that has been standing at HBO for almost 20 years.

Assuming a spinoff or two does make it to the airwaves, it should be interesting to see how its ratings compare to the parent show.
