In total, the average episode had 10.4m viewers from all legal platforms (premiere, repeat, HBO on demand, etc) and then about 4-5m illegal views.

As for modern TV ratings...

Game of Thrones - 4.2m
How I Met Your Mother - 8.87m
Big Bang Theory (Ugh) - 15m
Mad Men - 9.7m
House - 8.7m
Desperate Housewives - 11.1m
Family Guy - 5.7m

Of course, GoT is the only one of those that isn't on regular cable so the discrepancy is understandable. Big Bang Theory getting 15m, however, is baffling.
This is some nice info. Thanks.

I'd also be interested in how the ratings compare to comparative seasons of the above shows. E.g, GoT Season 2 ratings vs House Season 2 ratings. ETC.
