Now Playing: Westworld Season 3 Episode 2 "The Winter Line" Breakdown

These are, it's worth noting, just the live numbers, so it's not necessarily all doom and gloom. HBO Now viewers, and those who choose to wait a while, do not factor into this figure. But it's still pretty clear that Westworld's popularity has dropped.

Fans who did tune in, at least, were treated to an extremely metatextual reference to Game of Thrones, with showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss popping up as themselves in a twin cameo.

Westworld airs on HBO Sunday at 9 PM, Reviews for the season so far have been positive, if not effusively so.
