Most watched series finale in television history

After all the talk of last night’s Game of Thrones Season 4 finale, you might have thought it was one of the most watched episodes of television ever. Seriously, it seems like everyone was watching! Turns out, that is not the case at all. Given the nature of online streaming, On Demand, and Netflix, many people aren’t tuning in to their favourite programmes on cable anymore. So the Breaking Bad series finale you thought couldn’t have been more popular? Yeah, it doesn’t even come close on the list of most-watched finales. In fact, most of the those that earn that prize finished off in the 90’s: prime cable-watching time.

Here is a list of the top 14 most-watched TV series finales that take you on a walk down memory lane to a simpler time, when we sat on couches in front of TV’s with our family, rather than in bed alone hugging our laptops.

14. Star Trek: The Next Generation (31.0 million viewers)
13. Everybody Loves Raymond (32.9 million viewers)
12. Dallas (33.3 million viewers)
11. Fraiser (33.7 million viewers)
10. Home Improvement (35.5 million viewers)
9. Family Ties (36.3 million viewers)
8. All In The Family (40.2 million viewers)
7. The Cosby Show (44.4 million viewers)
6. The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Carson (50 million viewers)
5. Magnum, P.I. (51.7 million viewers)
4. Friends (52.46 million viewers)
3. Seinfeld (76.3 million viewers)
