Game of Thrones record: HBO’s “Game of Thrones” took home another record recently, breaking the network’s previous viewership record on Sunday.

The fifth “Game of Thrones” episode of the season garnered 5.3 million viewers and beat its own high of 4.9 million, reported Deadline.com.

“Veep,” the political series starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, also got 1.3 million viewers–its largest audience thus far.

Entertainment Weekly pointed out that last year’s premiere of “True Blood” got 5.2 million viewers, meaning that “Game of Thrones” could become HBO’s most watched series this year.
