“Game of Thrones” hauled in 10.167 million total viewers on Sunday, despite Episode 64 being leaked to the web a few days before its HBO premiere.

That impressive total is up 10 percent from last week, when the third episode of Season 7 drew 9.258 million total viewers. It also marks a new season high — at least in terms of “live” linear viewers measured by Nielsen.

Scroll past the “Also Read” to see how Season 7 of “Game of Thrones” had gone prior to Sunday. All numbers are from Nielsen’s Live + Same Day metric, which means they don’t count streaming viewers or DVR catch-up.

“GoT” Ratings, to-date:
Episode 61: 10.121 million total viewers (6.060 million from 18-49 demo)
Episode 62: 9.284 million total viewers (5.566 million in demo)
Episode 63: 9.258 million total viewers (5.525 million in demo)

In case you were one of the few to miss it, on Sunday’s “The Spoils of War,” Daenerys struck back, Jaime faced an unexpected situation, and Arya finally came home. This weekend’s episode is titled “Eastwatch,” and as of the time of this writing, the 9 p.m. HBO show has not leaked to the web.
