The next-to-last “Game of Thrones” of the season was far and away the biggest gainer with three days of DVR viewing.

The show’s position atop the cable rankings remained unchallenged in the Live +3 charts, partly because its lead was already huge. But it also had more people watch after the initial airing than any other show.

“GoT’s” gain of 1.3 points in adults 18-49 would by itself tie for seventh place in the rankings below. The 3.03 million viewers it added is bigger than the total three-day audience for all but 10 other cable shows.
