Kit Harington Talks Favourite GoT Scenes and Crazy Season 8 Schedules

The two shows share something else in common - frequent Always Sunny director Matt Shakman also directed two episodes of Game of Thrones Season 7, "The Spoils of War" and "Eastwatch".

The season premiere burned up Twitter, with fans saying they were left "speechless" by the episode.

The final episode of "Game of Thrones" will air on May 19.

HBO said Sunday's live US television audience and viewers on its HBO GO and HBO NOW apps exceeded the previous series high of 16.9 million viewers for the Season 7 finale two years ago. It includes 11.8M viewers on the linear HBO channel along with those on HBO Go and HBO NOW, and will go up heavily when delayed viewing is counted. It does fall behind the Season 7 finale, though, with 12.1 million.

Activists said they hope to create a "festival" of action, including people's assemblies, performances, talks, workshops and food. They plan to engage in acts of non-violent civil disobedience against governments in capital cities around the world.

Of course, the 17.4 million calculation is likely to change in the coming days when post-live viewership can be tallied.

As a testament to the evolving video consumption habits of subscribers, the HBO NOW streaming service saw a jump of approximately 50% in viewing when compared to last season's finale and almost doubled (97%) when compared to the seventh season premiere.

In fact, the premiere of Season 5 nearly matched the Season 8 premiere with its April 12, 2015 airing.

"Thrones" has become a TV blockbuster at a time when there's huge competition from streaming services and social media. Moreover, the third episode happens to be the longest episode of the season, clocking in at one hour 22 minutes.

When we became aware of the error, we immediately fixed it and we look forward to tuning in this evening. That's the same way he greets him upon their reunion in Season 8's premiere. According to Kit Harington, the logistics of being a dragon rider didn't leave too much room for, um, necessary bits and bobbles if you get our drift.

Still, the episode delivered some long-awaited reunions, especially for Arya.
