It was the second week in a row the sitcom had attracted more viewers, whose 12-season run ends with a 16 May finale episode.

The past week was still a big win for Game of Thrones as the latest episode was the most-watched of any show in HBO history.

The network is also available in far fewer homes than CBS and other rivals.

Game of Thrones' penultimate episode "The Bells" drew 18.4million viewers if reruns later that night and streaming services views are included.

The figures breaks the record of 17.8million set an episode earlier in the season.

Next week's series finale, whose title has not been revealed, is likely to crush those numbers.
