'Game of Thrones' season premiere attracts record 17.4M viewers

Joffrey and Margaery during a scene from'Game Of Thrones Purple Wedding

The pay channel said the 17.4 million viewers who watched Sunday's episode either on TV or online represent a season-opening high for the fantasy saga.

After a long wait of two years, the first episode of Game Of Thrones season 8 went on air today. I suppose that since it's the final season all gloves are off?

Back nearly two years after Season 7 premiered, Sunday's "Winterfell" Season 8 debut snared 17.4 million viewers for the premium cabler on-air and HBO Go and HBO Now. Either way, I am sure I can get a head start from logging on to social media and find out what I may have missed from last night's episodes.

The actor revealed during a brand new interview that he is sure Jon Snow will forever be his favorite character to play since the popular series, Game of Thrones, gave him his wife! While the episode was considerably light on blood and gore, it did much to cover plenty of ground, updating viewers on where numerous fantasy saga's remaining players are at.

The episode was live for some users for hours on DirecTV Now, before it was taken down.

Monday mornings are going to be all things Game of Thrones for the next few weeks.

Game of Thrones has featured a number of celebrity cameos over the years, so it's no surprise to see a couple of familiar faces pop up in the Season 8 premiere. When we became aware of the error, we immediately fixed it and we look forward to tuning in this evening. Will Arya Stark kill the Night King? Check the teaser out here below, then let us know what do you think about it in the comments section.
