House of the Dragon Season 1 Episode 2 Rating by Viewership:
Episode 2 of “House of the Dragon,” titled “Valar Dohaeris,” garnered 10.2 million viewers across HBO and HBO Max following its Sunday airing, as per Warner Bros. Discovery’s report.
This is a 2% increase from the show’s premiere episode, which was watched by close to 10 million people, based on WBD’s initial count released the day after it aired. The premiere, called “Heirs of the Dragon,” is HBO’s most-watched premiere of all time, more than doubling the viewership of its predecessor, “Game of Thrones,” which was viewed by 4.2 million people when it premiered in 2011
Although “House of the Dragon” has not come close to the viewership of “Game of Thrones” Season 8, which premiered to 17.9 million viewers and 10.3 million with its second episode, it is more comparable to HBO’s newer hits that don’t have the same level of fandom. “Euphoria” is at the top of that list, officially becoming HBO’s second-most successful show of all time in February during its second season.
The second episode of Season 2 of “Euphoria” brought in 2.6 million viewers, 292% less than “The Rogue Prince,” Episode 2 of “House of the Dragon.” Of the truth, both episodes of “House of the Dragon” maintained a viewership that surpassed any of the individual episodes of “Euphoria” for now, which hit a series high of 6.6 million with its Season 2 finale.
