Who run the world? Girls.

HBO’s comedic drama about a group of millennial girls living in Brooklyn, New York — devised by Lena Dunham — netted a series record 1.1 million viewers during its season three premiere Sunday night. That’s a 28% hike over last season’s debut, per Deadline.

The numbers are especially impressive considering Girls was up against the latter half of the 2014 Golden Globe awards — and that’s when all the heavy-hitting winners are named.

For those who didn’t tune in to HBO for the Girls premiere, you’re in luck: HBO put the whole thing on YouTube. For free!
