Though Monday evening’s TV ratings are heavily skewed downward due to preemptive coverage of the tragedy in Boston, Sunday evening’s cable ratings have arrived.  Here’s a look at how things stacked up:

  • The fantastic third episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones netted an all-time high audience of 4.7 million viewers, which is up from the season premiere’s 4.4 million total.  A fourth season of the fantasy series has already been ordered, and it’s safe to say Game of Thrones won’t be going away for a very, very long time.
  • The season two premiere of the swell HBO comedy series Veep scored 1.2 million viewers in the post-Game of Thrones slot.  That’s up 11% from the season one finale and marks the second most-watched episode in the show’s history.
  • Finally, Sunday’s Jon Hamm-directed episode of Mad Men dipped from last week’s two-hour season six opener with 2.7 million viewers.  That’s down quite a bit from the premiere’s 3.4 million total.
