“Game of Thrones — a medieval fantasy show based on “A Song of Ice and Fire,” a series of seven fantasy novels — raked in a high level of check-ins on Get Glue not only the night of the show, but in the days leading up to the premiere.”
About 50,000 people checked-in to GetGlue on Sunday to let friends know they were watching the show.
“We also had over 90,000 check-ins for the week leading up to the premiere,” a GetGlue spokesperson told Mashable, noting that the first episode of Game of Thrones last year brought in just 9,000 check-ins on.”
“We knew it would be a big night, but we didn’t know how big,” the spokesperson added
