HBO’s new show based on PlayStation fungal-zombie game The Last of Us (that is coming soon to PC) has had a healthy start. According to HBO, Sunday night’s premiere drew 4.7 million viewers both on TV and streaming on HBO Max.

That makes The Last of Us the HBO series’ second most-watched debut since the first episode of Boardwalk Empire aired in 2010 (4.81 million viewers), though the gap between second and first place is huge: the first episode of Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon was watched by about 10 million people on its first night last year. Perhaps it’s unfair to compare even a hugely popular game series like The Last of Us to anything other than Game of Thrones: George RR Martin’s books alone, The Last of Us and its sequels, have sold tens of millions of copies, and the Game of Thrones finale broke HBO records 19.3 million viewers when it aired.
