“Game Change,” the HBO film about former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s vice-presidential candidacy in 2008, was the cable channel’s most-watched original-film premiere in almost eight years.
The debut at 9 p.m. on March 10 drew an average of 2.1 million viewers, HBO, owned by Time Warner Inc., said Tuesday. Across four weekend showings, the program attracted a total of 3.6 million viewers.
The audience was the biggest for an original HBO film since “Something the Lord Made” on May 30, 2004, the network said.
