Season 6 of “Game of Thrones” debuted to slightly smaller ratings than the opening of Season 5 did in 2015, but it was still far and away the No. 1 show on TV Sunday.

The HBO series scored a 4.0 same-day rating in adults 18-49 and 7.94 million viewers for its premiere. That’s off a little from the 4.2 and 8 million viewers for its opener a year ago.

HBO notes that two replays later in the night and early figures from HBO Go and HBO Now push the total to 10.7 million viewers, a same-day record for the show.

Also Sunday, “Silicon Valley” premiered to a 1.0 and 1.32 million viewers, while “Veep” drew a 0.5 and 1.1 million people. “Fear the Walking Dead” scored a 2.1 in the demo, down from 2.5 the previous week.
