Coming in second, yet still far behind, was AMC's The Walking Dead followed by The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother and Gotham rounding out the Top 5.
TorrentFreak's data is estimated based on several sources, including download statistics reported by public BitTorrent trackers. Some outlets such as online streaming are difficult to track, so the numbers in the list could actually be much higher.

Season 4 of the Emmy-nominated HBO drama launches April 4. See the trailer below and get ready for what is to be a shocking and action packed season!
With the Season Four premiere of HBO's hit series Game of Thrones just around the corner, showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss talked to Entertainment Weekly about their plans for the show's conclusion.
"If we’re going to go seven seasons, which is the plan, season 4 is right down the middle, the pivot point", said David Benioff.
“I would say it’s the goal we’ve had from the beginning,” Benioff says. “It was our unstated goal, because to start on a show and say your goal is seven seasons is the height of lunacy.
"Once we got to the point where we felt like we’re going to be able to tell this tale to its conclusion, that became [an even clearer] goal. Seven gods, seven kingdoms, seven seasons. It feels right to us.”
Season 5 of Game of Thrones premieres on April 6th.
