The premiere of ‘The Last of Us’ on HBO has already been a great success, but the series continues to grow week by week. With the second chapter, he broke a historical record for the chain and the ratings for the third episode have been even bettersomething that was not even achieved by ‘The House of the Dragon’, since it lost follow-up in its third week -although it later grew again-.
The chapter ‘A long long time’ has achieved 6.4 million viewers during the night of its premiere on HBO, which represents a growth of 12% compared to the 5.7 million that ‘Infected’ had. This in turn represented an improvement of 22% compared to the 4.7 million viewers achieved by ‘When you lose yourself in the dark’.
It must also be taken into account that these data represent only a part of the audience of ‘The Last of Us’, since HBO clarifies that the first two episodes They already have an average of 21.3 million viewers. That figure does include all through which the series can be seen.
There yes that ‘The Last of Us’ still has room for growthWell, ‘The House of the Dragon’ closed its first season with an average audience of 29 million viewers. Nor is it bad at all to come in second place -to the second season of ‘Euphoria’, which averaged 19.5 million viewers, it seems that it will easily leave it behind-, but we will have to pay attention to how far it manages to grow.
Indeed, so that you get a better idea of the impact of ‘The Last of Us’, ‘Game of Thrones’ did not exceed those 21.3 million viewers on average until its sixth season. In addition, it did not manage to increase its audience during its first three episodes, since the following of the second fell slightly compared to the first.
