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 previous record for a single telecast in HBO history - 13.4 million - was held by the season four premiere of "The Sopranos" in 2002.

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.

Flair took advantage of the situation and delivered a Big Boot for the three count to become the new Smackdown Women's Champion. The incident came when Brock Lesnar arrived and took out Ali, the Beast also took down two cameramen on his way to the ring.

According to the Hollywood Reporter media outlet, the previous record was set by the previous episode, called The Bells, which was watched by 18.4 million viewers. It even took a record previously set by The Sopranos. This means that the series finale was almost one million ahead of last weekend's 18.4 million overall ratings record.

The Barry season finale also performed very well with 2.7 million viewers watching across all of HBO's platforms on Sunday night, and the initial telecast reached a series high of 2.2 million viewers, which quadrupled the first season finale's viewership of 548,000.

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.
