'Dragonstone' breaks several records!

HBO said 16.1 million subscribers watched 'Dragonstone'; the number is 50% more than the sixth season premiere's viewers.

While 10.1 million of the subscribers watched it live, the other 6 million chose DVR and streaming.

'Dragonstone' is "the most-watched season premiere" for any of HBO's series and also had the "highest number of concurrent viewers" on HBO Go and HBO Now streaming platforms.

This year's opener also the most tweeted-about

'Dragonstone' was also the "most tweeted-about" episode in the 'Game of Thrones' history. It attracted over 2.4 million tweets, most of which talked about Arya Stark's cold opening scene and also Ed Sheeran's cameo, which annoyed many GoT fans.


Do GoT fans watch a lot of porn?

Not saying that GoT fans are porn addicts, but it appears like they watch a lot of porn.

Shortly after the dramatic opening of GoT S07, Pornhub's visitor traffic shot back up.

Pornhub will continue to follow up to see how the seventh season impacts its numbers in comparison to the sixth.

Pornhub, which turned 10 in May'17, is reportedly the largest porn website.
