The viewership numbers from the last “Game of Thrones” numbers have been updated, and they shot up with the streaming included.

According to Variety, the initial number of 11.8 million viewers jumped to 17.2 million once HBOGO and HBO Now streaming numbers were included. (RELATED: These Are The Sexiest Photos Of ‘Game Of Thrones‘ Star Emilia Clarke On The Internet)

Once again, it’s just more proof of how popular the hit HBO show is for fans around the world. Over 17 million viewers? That’s just an absurd number for any show on cable. (RELATED: ‘Game Of Thrones‘ Is Excellent In New Episode ‘The Last Of The Starks’)

It was about 600,000 under the third episode of the final season, according to Variety, but that’s too be expected. The battle of Winterfell was the most hyped episode of television in recent memory.

Putting up 17.2 million is nothing to laugh at. Those are big-time numbers for a big-time show. It really does make me happy as all hell to see “Game of Thrones” putting up gigantic numbers.

Hopefully, the insane success of the show will drive more networks to branch out and get riskier with their content.

People will clearly tune in if the stuff produced is great.

Tune in Sunday night on HBO for the second to last episode of “Game of Thrones.” The saga is nearing an end, and we have to savor every remaining second.

It’s going to be epic, and the numbers should continue to be absolutely huge.
