‘Game Of Thrones’ Ratings Grow Again

Series breaks another record as audience interest remains strong

HBO’s hit fantasy series “Game of Thrones” continues to break ratings records in its third season.

Episode 4, “Kissed By Fire,” attracted 4.9 million viewers Sunday for its 9 p.m. showing, setting a new high for an initial airing. That was up 4 percent from last week.

Counting Sunday’s encore, 5.9 million viewers tuned in.

In comparison, the Season 3 premiere, “Valar Dohaeris,” pulled in 4.4 million viewers during its 9 p.m. showing, totaling 6.7 million viewers after the encore.

Strong audience interest has also made “Game of Thrones” the most pirated show of 2012. More than 1 million viewers downloaded the Season 3 premiere, with a record-breaking 163,000 people sharing a single torrent at one point, according to piracy tracker TorrentFreak.

Last year, 4.3 million people downloaded the season finale.

“Game of Thrones” chronicles a treacherous clash among royal families to secure ultimate power of Westeros, a vast kingdom facing peril at every corner.

Season 3 is based on the first half of author George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novel “A Storm of Swords.”

HBO has already renewed the series for a fourth season.

“Game of Thrones,” which is executive produced by David Benioff (“Troy,” “The Kite Runner”) and D.B. Weiss, stars Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Emilia Clarke, Michelle Fairley, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, Kit Harington, Harry Lloyd.

The series airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
