"Game Of Thrones" is TV's most pirated series. According to TorrentFreak, a news site about BitTorrent, "Game Of Thrones" was the most downloaded series of spring 2012 (measurements ended June 1) averaging about 4 million downloads per episode. For most of the season, the fantasy series hovered around 4 million viewers in the Nielsen ratings.

The finale of the popular series had 4.2 million viewers and approximately 3.9 million downloads. Of the Top 10 shows on TorrentFreak's list, only one newcomer charted: ABC's "Revenge." The finale of the Emily VanCamp series had 7.9 million viewers and 1.7 million downloads, coming in at No. 7 on the list.

When "Desperate Housewives" said goodbye, 11.1 million viewers tuned in May and the series finale was downloaded 1.7 million times. The series finale of "House" has 8.7 million viewers and was downloaded about 2.3 million times. Of the shows on the list, The CW's "Supernatural" had the closest numbers in downloads and TV viewers. The series, which has a cult following and previously aired on Friday nights, had 1.8 million viewers and 1.5 million downloads. Other shows that made the list: "The Big Bang Theory," "Mad Men," "How I Met Your Mother," "Modern Family" and "Family Guy." None of the top pirated shows were from NBC.

According to TorrentFreak, "Game Of Thrones" is poised to be the most downloaded series of 2012. One reason? Because viewers want to watch the series, but don't have the pay cable channel. Fans launched a new campaign, "Take My Money HBO," pleading with the cable channel to make HBO GO -- a hub where paid subscribers can watch the network's shows via online and mobile devices -- available for purchase to people who don't have HBO.

The network responded -- sort of -- on Twitter by sharing a TechCrunch article with reasons why HBO won't make HBO GO available to non-subscribers.
