‘Game Change’ Nets Huge Ratings for HBO

Saturday night’s premiere of Game Change garnered huge ratings for HBO — to the tune of 2.1 million viewers.

That figure ranks as the network’s most watched original movie since 2004, when the Mos Def-starring Something the Lord Made netted 2.6 million viewers.

The film, directed by Jay Roach, is based on John Heilemann’s 2010 bestseller of the same name, about 2008 presidential candidate John McCain (Ed Harris) and his running mate Sarah Palin (Julianne Moore).
