Last Sunday, "The Bible" beat out CBS' "The Good Wife," earning a 6.7 household rating/10 share on Nielsen Ratings' overnight report.
The success of The Bible, which averaged 4.6 million adults 25-54, proves the enormous potential of programming to an obviously underserved audience.
In its marketing campaign, The Bible, executive produced by Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, employed some of Mel Gibson’s marketig teams for his "The Passion Of The Christ," including doing grass-roots campaigning and gaining the support of prominent pastors.
It will continue to air two-hour installments every Sunday, culminating with its conclusion on Easter Sunday.
Sunday's episode concluded with the Israelites reaching the city of Jericho - a story from the book of Joshua - and will pick back up this upcoming Sunday at 8 p.m. EST on the History Channel.
