The numbers are remaining very impressive for HBO’s smash hit GAME OF THRONES. Last night’s Episode 2 rating was only down 2-3% from the series-record season premiere the previous week. That’s better than the hold True Blood had between its season premiere and 3rd episode (its 2d episode can’t fairly be counted because it fell on July 4th weekend and had previously been made available online), which was close to a 10% drop.

Stay tuned for numbers from the premiere of THE CLIENT LIST on Lifetime and Showtime’s season premieres.
