‘The Boys’ See 21% Increase In Viewers Even As ‘House of the Dragon’ Suffers 22% Drop

It’s a clash between The Boys and House of The Dragon as two of this summer’s biggest TV shows premiere their latest seasons just days after each other, and the statistics are rolling in. The Boys won big at Amazon Prime Video with a 21% increase in viewers, while over at HBO, Season 2 of House of the Dragon delivered HBO Max’s biggest streaming day, albeit suffering a 22% drop in viewers compared to Season 1.

The Boys’ Season 4 premiere saw a 21% rise in viewers compared to its Season 3 viewership, reigning at the top of Amazon Prime Video’s streaming charts for four days straight. Although, Amazon only provided percentages and not actual numbers, and the premiere includes the first three episodes of the show. It’s unclear if the percentages accurately reflect the show’s actual viewership. The Boys has one season left before coming to its epic conclusion, and showrunner Eric Kripke is excited for Season 5, which got renewed ahead of Season 4.

While tensions between Team Black and Team Green remain high as House of the Dragon Season 2 premiered on Monday, viewership numbers peaked at 7.8 million for just its first episode. The first episode of Season 1 had 10 million viewers on its premiere, but despite its decline in numbers, the show still clinched the title for the biggest Season 2 premiere in Europe. Season 2 will have eight episodes, concluding with its finale on 4 August, and the show was renewed for Season 3.

As The Boys and House of The Dragon hurtle on to their action-packed climaxes, one might have won the battle, but whether they’ll be able to hold on to their title remains to be seen.
