Why Isn't Game of Thrones Season 3, Episode 9 On?

Sundays are usually a great day for television, but there is no new episode of Game of Thrones tonight because of the holiday weekend. When HBO aired the penultimate episode of season two,  a year ago over Memorial Day weekend, the episode pulled in the worst ratings of the season by a large margin. Because of that lack of success last year, Game of Thrones has decided to delay season 3, episode 9, “The Rains of Castamere”. The show will be pushed back a week and air on June 2.

Without the pleasure of a new Game of Thrones episode, what is there you do? Here are a few ideas:

    k you hbo im canceling my sub after this season is over

    They will show an episode on Easter, when everyone is having Easter dinner but on the party holiday (which come on let’s admit it is for you Americans) They’ll cancel it. I will also be cancelling my subscription because this is not a Canadian holiday, but the world is run by the American Holidays.

      Canada still sucks

    It’s an American TV Station, and the majority of the fan base is American. I wish they would have said something last week about this so I didn’t look forward to it so much, but I’ll get over it. I’m not going to cancel my subscription because I had to wait a week. How childish.

  • hey-nah-nah

    I’m a little miffed (I rushed the purchase of a TV on craigslist I knew wasn’t the best deal in order to watch the episode tonight) but canceling your subscription because you have to wait a week? Maybe you should get your priorities straight, you spoiled brats.

    You sound like two year olds throwing a tantrum because you have to wait seven days for the next episode. Poor Canadians. PATHETIC!

    I am SO disappointed with HBO or whoever decided to postpone tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones. I spent the day staying close to home to watch my favorite TV series and lo and behold; I get all ready – with dinner in front of me – and all phones disconnected….only to find it’s not listed on HBO tonight!? How could they do this? Anyone who is gone because of the holiday could tape the series on their DVR. And because of the ratings? Unreal. At the very least….why didn’t they tell us ahead of time? I am so pissed right now. Sure, I’ll get over it….but really…was that the right way to do it? They should have had the decency to at least announce it so we wouldn’t have been expecting to see tonight’s airing. Kind of makes you not even want to get interested in these series shows anymore if they are going to control the airing on a whim. What’s next? A charge for each episode?
