Many of the shows avid fans coined the final season a train wreck and the ratings are very representative of that. Capping off what was one of the most successful TV series of all time, the final season simply didn’t live up to expectations as the shows writers were tasked with the role to come up with their own script following George R.R. Martin’s inability to finish (or even properly start) the book the series was meant to be based off.
Despite the poor ratings, GoT still secured a convincing second place, narrowly losing out to seasoned veteran Breaking Bad which went above and beyond in its final season, locking its place as the highest rated show.
