HBO’s “Westworld” wrapped last night with 2.2 million viewers tuning in for the live broadcast and a further 1.4 million checking it out on replays of HBO Go..
Combined with the previous nine episode ratings, that makes “Westworld” the most watched first season of an original HBO series ever. The aim was for a series to carry them ahead for the next few years and fill the hole being left by “Game of Thrones,” it looks like they got their wish.
Reviews for the finale have been very strong, the episode wrapping up several mysteries, confirming one major fan theory, giving us a glimpse at another world and effectively explaining where the second season will go.
