  1. The ratings of episode 3 have not been officially released. The viewership was down about 1 million for the premiere on Sunday night due in part to airing in the U.S. during Labor Day weekend. The number of people watching the episode on HBO's platforms the following days was greater than for the first two episodes, however.
