While talking about House of the Dragon, its viewership reports have come in. As per that, the Matt Smith starrer has been a record-breaking one. According to Warner Bros. Discovery, the Game of Thrones prequel amassed 9.99 million viewers across HBO and HBO Max after premiering with one episode on Sunday.

Not only did House of the Dragon break HBO’s record with getting the most viewership on its premiere, but the series also garnered more than double what Game of Thrones did. The Kit Harrington and Emilia Clarke series debuted with 4.2 million viewers in 2011. Seems like the fans are back to watch Westeros on their screens.

With such a huge viewership also came some technical issues as several fans shared that the streaming service crashed during its premiere. They took to Twitter to share their dismay. Check out a few tweets here:

Meanwhile, when it comes to its ratings, House of the Dragon received 9 out of 10 on IMDb and an 88% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. It is similar to what Game of Thrones has but it can change as the HBO series is just released.
