On the strength of a much-hyped return for monoculture juggernaut " Game of Thrones", HBO released the cross-platform viewership numbers for its Sunday night programming.

In addition, te 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.

Barry, a tense dramedy starring Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader, followed Thrones and saw its best night ever with 2.2 million viewers.
