HBO’s “Westworld” ended its first season with its biggest audience so far.

The season finale of the heavily theorized-about show tied its season high in adults 18-49 with a 1.0 rating and hit a season high in viewers with 2.24 million. The 18-49 rating matched the previous week’s episode, and the viewer count surpasses the premiere and episode 9, both of which drew 2.1 million viewers for the initial airing.

For the season, “Westworld” averaged 0.8 same-day rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.83 million viewers. That’s a fraction of the total audience — HBO says that repeat airings, DVR and on-demand catchup and streaming bring the show’s total to about 12 million viewers per episode.

Also Sunday, “The Walking Dead” stemmed its five-week decline in ratings. The show earned a 4.9 rating in adults 18-49, even with the week before, and rose slightly in viewers to 10.48 million (vs. 10.4 million).

Elsewhere Sunday, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” (1.1) and “Shameless” (0.6) were both steady. The premiere of “Mariah’s World” on E! posted a 0.5 and 1.24 million viewers.

Note: An earlier version of this post had “The Walking Dead” at a 5.0 rating in adults 18-49 rather than 4.9.
