Game of Thrones Season 8 is now the worst rated Game of Thrones season of all time

As you guys might already know, Game of Thrones Season 8 isn’t doing too well with the ratings. We saw episode 3 go on to become the second lowest rated episode of the show, only to be displaced by episode 4 for the slot. Now, Game of Thrones has hit another low, with Season 8 becoming the lowest rated season for the show, of all time. Read on!

Rotten Tomatoes recently published a report about how Game of Thrones Season 8 ratings have hit a record low for the show, making it a non-recoverable lowest rated season of the show.

Game of Thrones Season 8 kicked off with a relatively good percentage in ratings with the first two episodes. However, episode 3 and 4 have dipped the ratings down so low, that even if the show hits 100% with both of the remaining episodes, it will bring up the season average rating to 85%, which will still make it the lowest rated season. The season currently sits at an average of 77%.

In contrast, all the other seasons are 90%+, with the first season being the lowest at 91%, and Season 4 being the highest at 97%.

What do you guys think? Do you agree with the low ratings for this season? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Rotten Tomatoes has never accurately rated the better shows. It’s the final season, tough to wrap up a story like this neatly. Fans will never be happy with the ending of an era.

The show I came to love is gone. It is a very sad thing. They should have just let it run and just end without any big finale. The show runners have blown it.

They’re ending it too fast, that’s the problem. GoT has always been noted for its foreshadowing and clues. This year the season started and the final battle with the White Walkers happened in the second episode. Now we’re getting the battle of King’s Landing today, I believe. It’s just going way too fast.

Plus, we’re not seeing enough dragon.

I’m loving the final season, but it’s not my favorite. Because the season is ending, doesn’t mean all my loved actors have to die, has not made me happy. Last nights episode was just crazy. It’s not going as I would have hoped, but any show or movie is difficult to finish. Even good books have crappy endings sometimes.

George R. R. Martin discusses Game of Thrones finale, says the books will and will not have a similar ending

George R. R. Martin discusses Game of Thrones finale, says the books will and will not have a similar ending

After nearly a decade of work being put in, Game of Thrones ended this Sunday. Season 8 episode 6 — “The Iron Throne” rounded up a lot of loose ends from the show, and while it might not have pleased everyone, it was still a fitting end for the show that has had us on the hook for such a long time. Now, of course, everybody is interested in knowing what creator George R. R. Martin has to think of the end and whether the book ending will be any different. These are exactly the questions that he addressed in a blog post on his website, recently. Read on!

George wrote a blog post on his Not a Blog recently, titled “An Ending“, talking about the end of Game of Thrones. George dabbled in nostalgia in the post, talking about how he asked David and Dan who Jon Snow’s mother was, in their first meeting, and they knew the right answer. He also went on to appreciate the showrunners, the cast and the crew for working so hard on the show. He revealed his future plans, saying he was working on five shows with the HBO, some of which are not about Westeros. He then went on to discuss his plans with the books, specifically:

“And I’m writing. Winter is coming, I told you, long ago… and so it is. THE WINDS OF WINTER is very late, I know, I know, but it will be done. I won’t say when, I’ve tried that before, only to burn you all and jinx myself… but I will finish it, and then will come A DREAM OF SPRING.

How will it all end? I hear people asking. The same ending as the show? Different?

Well… yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes.”

He then gave us a glimpse of what to expect from the books:

“I am working in a very different medium than David and Dan, never forget. They had six hours for this final season. I expect these last two books of mine will fill 3000 manuscript pages between them before I’m done… and if more pages and chapters and scenes are needed, I’ll add them. And of course the butterfly effect will be at work as well; those of you who follow this Not A Blog will know that I’ve been talking about that since season one. There are characters who never made it onto the screen at all, and others who died in the show but still live in the books… so if nothing else, the readers will learn what happened to Jeyne Poole, Lady Stoneheart, Penny and her pig, Skahaz Shavepate, Arianne Martell, Darkstar, Victarion Greyjoy, Ser Garlan the Gallant, Aegon VI, and a myriad of other characters both great and small that viewers of the show never had the chance to meet. And yes, there will be unicorns… of a sort…”

He also ridiculed the idea of fans asking which one the “real ending” will be:

“Book or show, which will be the “real” ending? It’s a silly question. How many children did Scarlett O’Hara have? How about this? I’ll write it. You read it. Then everyone can make up their own mind, and argue about it on the internet.”

Well, the man said it himself. Maybe we should stop complaining now and enjoy what Game of Thrones did for us. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones gave us a beautifully “subverted” ending this Sunday. In the series finale — Season 8 episode 6, “The Iron Throne”, Westeros got a new ruler that was completely unexpected.

Game of Thrones fans react to Bran Stark becoming King

Game of Thrones has revolved around who gets to sit on the Iron Throne after Robert Baratheon’s death resulted in a series of conflicts that caused a lot of death and destruction. In this episode, all the important lords and ladies of Westeros gathered in the Dragonpit, to choose the new ruler.

The scene has Tyrion Lannister on trial, who had been held as a prisoner for betraying Daenerys Targaryen. An angry Grey Worm brings Tyrion, and eventually, Tyrion soon gets to talking. He talks about how there can be no better ruler than the one that holds all memories of the realm, Bran Stark, A.K.A. Bran the Broken.

Issac Hempstead Wright, who plays the role of Bran Stark, had the best reaction to this reveal. He tweeted:

HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6: The Iron Throne

Game of Thrones final season might not have gotten the expected response from critics and fans with regards to the rankings, the show still has maintained its viewership figures.

HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6: The Iron Throne

A report by The Wall Street Journal says that the finale of the show garnered a record viewership of 19.3 million viewers, including the live TV viewership, and streaming viewership from HBO Go and HBO Now. The live TV views accounted for 13.6 million of those views.

This not only make the episode the most watched Game of Thrones episode of all time, but also makes it the most viewed HBO episode in history, standing above some pretty great television.

Season 8 has consistently broken the viewership records for the show, starting right from the premiere. The last episode of the show being the most watched is quite fitting, given Game of Thrones had been HBO’s poster child for a long time now.
