Game of Thrones has already been renewed for a second season, but it's still good to know that the series is doing well in the ratings. Episode 8, which aired this past Sunday,scored 2.7 million viewers. That's a 22% increase since the series premiere. When the episode repeated later that night it picked up an additional 900,000 viewers, which gave Game of Thrones a total of 3.6 million viewers for the night.
