Game of Thrones isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Given the show’s boffo ratings for the Season 4 premiere, not surprisingly, the network has renewed the show for not just one, but two more seasons.

“Game of Thrones is a phenomenon like no other,” said HBO programming president Michael Lombardo. “[Producers] David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, along with their talented collaborators, continue to surpass themselves, and we look forward to more of their dazzling storytelling.”

This past Sunday, the show scored a record-breaking 6.6 million viewers, an increase of 52% from the Season 3 opener. Not only is it GoT’s best episode ever, but it’s the network’s best showing since The Sopranos aired its series finale seen by 11.9 million back in 2007. When the two additional airings are factored in, Game of Thrones had a gross audience of 8.2 million on Sunday.

Excited for at least two more years of GoT? What did you think of the premiere? Sound off below.

Love Game of Thrones? Obsessed with House of Cards? Do you prefer Quiznos over Subway? If you’re three for three, this clip is for you. The fast food submarine sandwich establishment teamed up with Toasty TV for an oddly entertaining mashup parody titled House of Thrones.

Seriously, it’s so whacky you can’t help but finish the clip. The guy playing Kevin Spacey, Ross Marquand, does a sensational impression of the actor. It’s one of the best I’ve seen of Spacey. In fact, Kevin himself approves of the spoof. He tweeted, “We weren’t sure what should happen in #HouseOfCards Season 3 but I think I’ve figured it out,” as he linked to the video. Check it out below.

During an interview with Game of Thrones fansite Winter Is Coming, Kristian Nairn who plays the beloved character Hodor came out as gay. The topic came up when the 38-year-old actor was informed that he had a big following in the gay community. Nairn replied to the blog, “Well, in all honesty, when you talk about the gay community you are talking about MY community, haha.”

Kristian added, “I AM aware of it yeah, and I think it’s really lovely. There’s not a day that I don’t get a few messages, but 99 percent or more are super sweet and nothing smutty at all! Again, it’s a privilege, and I really mean that.”

HBO unveiled a whackload of character posters for Game of Thrones Season 4. About 20 to be exact.

As opposed to last year’s colorful crop, the fantasy series opted for a black and white look this year. All are inscribed with “Valar Morghulis” which means “all men must die” in High Valyrian. GOT Season 4 premieres on HBO on Sunday, April 6. Check out Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner and the rest below.

However, for hardcore viewers, I’m sure you can extrapolate a couple of juicy spoilers after viewing them several times. Check them all out below.

What Was The Most Pirated Show Of 2013?

In: Donovan, TV Shows
most-pirated-shows-2013

Whether we like to admit it or not (for legal reasons), we’ve all downloaded our favorite TV shows through bittorrent at some point or another. Sometimes we can’t help it because our PVR/DVR decided to go crazy and miss a show or someone in our household “accidentally” deleted it after watching it themselves. Or my most annoying pet peeve, when a preceding show bleeds into regularly scheduled programming. That drives me insane. Regardless of the reason, we’ve all done it. And according to the 2013 statistics compiled by TorrentFreak.com, millions of us are guilty as charged.

Once again Game of Thrones is the reigning king/queen of illegal downloads. The site reports that the season three finale of the HBO fantasy series was illegally downloaded 5.9 million times, while 5.4 million viewers watched the finale on television legally. One would think this would piss off HBO execs, right? Not so.

With all the attention focused on movies this time of year, I thought I’d give some loving to programs on the small screen. Truth be told, the American Film Institute’s picks for Top 10 best films are pretty much status quo with all the recent critics awards, The only exceptions being Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Wolf of Wall Street and Tom Hanks’ Saving Mr. Banks finally entering the Oscar race. I really didn’t feel like talking about another 12 Years A Slave win ;)

On the television side, the AFI made some room in their Top 10 for new blood. Orange Is The New Black, The Americans, Masters of Sex and Scandal were just a few first-timers who made the cut. Despite being the highest-rated of the three, American Horror Story: Coven was snubbed. Also noticeably absent were Girls, Homeland and Modern Family. All of which have been included on the list since their respective freshman year. Is this the beginning of the end for the Emmy-winning ABC sitcom’s winning streak?

Based on the AFI’s mandate, below are the ten outstanding films and 10 outstanding television programs deemed culturally and artistically representative of the year’s most significant achievements in the art of the moving image. See if you agree with their list.
