The wait is finally over. Season four of Game of Thrones premieres tonight. The season three premiere, which faced competition from The Walking Dead season finale, earned a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating. The season three finale garnered a 2.9. Since this year, HBO opted not to pit GoT against the highest rated show on television, how do you think the season four premiere will fare? As you ratings followers know, cable dramas have been known to rise from season to season due to people streaming them during the off-season and getting hooked. So, make your prediction!
