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.

You could basically combine this video with synopses of each episode for a Game of Thrones speedball.

Exit polls by News 18-Ipsos has projected six to seven seats for the BJP, and the Congress may gain by winning one seat. It is a loss of two seats for Congress, which had won nine in 2014 while no change is expected in the strength of JD-S.

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.

Game of Thrones' final season inspired such FOMO among non-viewers that several punters executed marathon binges just to catch up.
