“Girls” competed with the big boys on Sunday.

The HBO series’ finale jumped 45 percent from last year’s Season 5 ender, pulling in 741,000 total viewers this time around.

Week over week, the show’s increase was far more modest — the penultimate episode of the Lena Dunham comedy earned 735,000 total viewers. That means the growth for the actual finale was less than 1 percent.

April 2nd’s third-to-last episode was actually this season’s most-watched, with 766,000 overall audience members. Interestingly enough, that’s exactly twice what Episode 55 pulled in on February 26, 2017.

The final episode of the show’s freshman run remains a season finale high for “Girls” — that one drew 1 million total viewers, per Nielsen’s Live + Same Day metric. All numbers in this story come from that measurement.
