The Last of Us, ratings grow ever higher with third episode of HBO TV series
Sunday aired the third episode of the HBO TV series of The Last of Us, and as reported by The Hollywood Reporter, ratings continue to climb.
The latest installment of the Naughty Dog game adaptation drew 6.4 million people in the U.S., a number up from the 5.7 million ratings of the second installment and the 4.7 million of the first. This is a ratings increase not to be underestimated considering that an important AFC Championship game was airing on CBS at the same time. HBO also says that four of its latest series, including The Last of Us, have averaged more than 15 million viewers.
According to HBO, the first two installments of the series averaged 21.3 million viewers across all platforms, the majority of which came from streaming on the HBO Max platform. The success of The Last of Us is evident to all to such an extent that HBO announced last week that it will work on a second season.
The Last of Us TV series airs weekly on Sky and Now TV in Italy, with each new episode available on Sunday night and Monday night. The fourth episode will arrive this weekend. Did you know that the first episode can be viewed for free on Sky’s YouTube channel?
