HBO’s “Game Of Thrones” Ratings Rise Again

Despite facing competition from a highly rated NBA playoffs game and the Billboard Music Awards, HBO’s “Game Of Thrones” enjoyed another week-to-week performance increase.

According to national data posted by Showbuzz, Sunday’s episode drew a 3.96 adults 18-49 rating and 7.890 million total viewers. The numbers narrowly top the 3.92 rating and 7.82 million viewership sum drawn by last week’s broadcast.
