Game Of Thrones Is Now Attracting A Larger Audience Than House Of The Dragon

According to viewership figures, Game of Thrones is presently attracting more viewers on streaming than its precursor, House of the Dragon.

In terms of viewership, Game of Thrones is presently outpacing its precursor, House of the Dragon. According to Variety, House of the Dragon scored sixth on the Nielsen Streaming Top 10 ranking from August 22 to 28, which included the first week of Episode 1 and some of Episode 2.


Specifically, the first two episodes received a total of 741 million viewing minutes throughout that time span. That data does not cover the release of House of the Dragon as a channel on HBO, only the HBO Max streaming service. According to reports, the show has roughly 10 million viewers across all platforms and is averaging 29 million viewers every episode.

Game of Thrones, on the other hand, ranked third on the same ranking, with over 909 million viewing minutes within that time frame. With 73 episodes available to watch, Game of Thrones knocked out House of the Dragon, which was attributed to heightened interest in the franchise following the publication of the prequel.


Otherwise, Netflix dominated the top ranks of streaming services. Echoes racked up 1,123 million minutes, Me Time 971 million minutes, Stranger Things 890 million minutes, NCIS 770 million minutes, and The Sandman 681 million minutes. Both Games of Thrones and House of the Dragon are based on fantasy author George R.R. Martin's novels.

The eight-season drama featured the narrative of numerous families and individuals competing for control of the Iron Throne and the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. While the series received excellent reviews at first, subsequent seasons received less praise and more criticism. Nonetheless, Game of Thrones remained enormously successful in terms of viewership throughout its lifetime. Following the conclusion of Game of Thrones, HBO began developing new programs set in the same realm. The first of these programs to air is House of the Dragon, which chronicles House Targaryen 172 years before the birth of Daenerys Targaryen. HBO is also developing a second series centered on Jon Snow.
