Just shortly after House of the Dragon‘s record-breaking premiere on HBO, Amazon Prime‘s very own The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power has also surpassed viewing records over at the media company, raking in a whopping 25 million viewers during the show’s two-episode debut within just 24 hours.

“It is somehow fitting that Tolkien’s stories – among the most popular of all time, and what many consider to be the true origin of the fantasy genre – have led us to this proud moment,” said Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke. “I am so grateful to the Tolkien Estate – and to our showrunners J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, executive producer Lindsey Weber, cast and crew – for their tireless collaborative efforts and boundless creative energy. And it is the tens of millions of fans watching – clearly as passionate about Middle-earth as we are – who are our true measure of success.”

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is currently streaming on Amazon Prime.

Elsewhere in entertainment, you can now watch the first episode of House of the Dragon for free on YouTube.
