Game of Thrones Audience Demographics
Game of Thrones is definitely a show that rose to global popularity, and with so many people watching the show it’s interesting to look into the Game of Thrones audience demographics. Not too long ago, a survey went out to fans of both the books and TV show on Time Capsule, collecting information about the respondent’s age, gender and opinions on the show.
The results of the survey have been posted and here we explore a little from these results.
According to this survey, the average GoT fan is a male, aged 18-29. This isn’t too surprising, although the type of people surveyed needs to be taken into consideration. A vast majority of the respondents were book-only fans and possibly found their way to the survey from a link on reddit.
If we look at the voters from the Game of Thrones TV imdb page, there’s almost 500,000 more males than females. This graph also matches the results from the Time Capsule survey, in that the average voter age is 18-29, but the 30-44 range isn’t too far behind.
This viewership breakdown by Sisense shows the increase in popularity over time. As the graph shows, the GoT TV show grew year-on-year in viewership as new seasons were released. The Season 4 premiere had 6.6 million viewers during the 9pm broadcast, which was up 2.2 from the previous year. The numbers don’t account for the real viewership though, as it’s difficult to know the amount of illegal downloads. GoT is reported as the most pirated show in history.
