How Philly Spent the Blizzard Weekend: Watching Game of Thrones
Insert your “winter is coming” jokes here. Or maybe just make a Jon Snow pun.
In either case, Comcast confirmed Monday what most of us surely suspected: The weekend blizzard was a superb time to hunker down around a TV and binge-watch favorite shows. In Philadelphia and New Jersey, viewership spiked by 50 percent over the previous weekend.
And yes, they watched Game of Thrones: It was the most-viewed show in Xfinity on Demand’s premium TV category over the weekend.
Other popular shows:
• NBC’s Shades of Blue was the most popular cable/broadcast show.
• Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans Go was the most watched kids show.
• Hotel Transylvania on FX was the biggest free VOD movie.
• The Intern was the most popular rental movie.
Meanwhile, some other people actually went outside.
