Game of Thrones, Arrow, Big Bang Theory and Suits Among Most Pirated TV Shows of 2013
For a second consecutive year, HBO’s Game of Thrones — specifically, its Season 3 finale — carried the dubious honor of being the most pirated TV show, TorrentFreak reports, with 5.9 million downloads.
The same episode amassed 6.2 million total viewers the night of June 2, via the old-fashioned way — broadcasts on HBO.
Breaking Bad‘s series finale placed second with 4.2 million downloads, followed by an episode of The Walking Dead (3.6 mil).
The Big Bang Theory (3.4 mil) and How I Met Your Mother (3 mil) were the only comedies to crack the Top 10, placing fourth and sixth. Dexter was sandwiched between them with 3.1 mil.
Filling the No. 7 through 10 spots were Suits (2.6 mil), Homeland (2.4 mil), Vikings (2.3 mil) and Arrow (2.2 mil).
