It’s a good time to be a fan of the Fantasy series since two eagerly awaited prequel episodes have now debuted on their own individual streaming services. While Neil Gaiman’s Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power transported viewers back in time to the Second Age of Middle-earth, thousands of years before The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, George R.R. Martin’s House of the Dragon returns to Westeros 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
It is not surprising to observe how these fandoms have placed the two fantasy series against one another given the enormous number of viewers all across the world.
Even though both programs earned excellent ratings from reviewers, the prequel that has the most viewers appears to stand out.
House of the Dragon looks to be the fantasy category frontrunner, according to a recent statistics analysis by Samba TV, with a total of 4.8 million in American households, considerably surpassing The Rings of Power‘s 1.8 million viewing record.

A factor in the show’s low viewership may be the intense response that The Rings of Power is now experiencing. Elon Musk recently made a pretty critical remark about the program, to which Neil Gaiman responded with a witty aggressive defense of his work.
The first and second episodes of House of the Dragon achieved a record-breaking 10 million viewers, which led to the show’s renewal for a second season.
HBO Max offers streaming of House of the Dragon. Prime Video is currently streaming Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.
