What’s the Most Pirated TV Show — Beating Out The Walking Dead?

HBO and Showtime are popular when it comes to pirated TV shows.

A list of the ten most-pirated TV shows has been released, and the dubious top honor goes to HBO's Game of Thrones, according to Business Insider.

The Season 3 premiere of Game of Thrones is the most-pirated episode of television ever on file-sharing site Bittorrent, as more than 320,000 people shared the episode. Apparently, winter isn't coming for the show's populatiry among file-sharers.

Another popular show to crack the top ten is AMC's The Walking Dead, which comes in at number six. This show isn't as high on the list as we might have expected, so maybe more people have AMC on their own TVs than have HBO.

In fact, premium channels are well-represented on the list, with Showtime's Dexter taking the second spot and Homeland at number seven.

Comedy is popular among pirates as well, with The Big Bang Theory at three and How I Met Your Mother at four.

Fringe is ranked at number nine, and considering that show was canceled due to middling ratings, we're thinking the show could have used those viewers.

In fact, we'd hate to think what one of Game of Thrones' many violent characters might do to the people who are pirating the show.
