A five-part American docudrama called The Bible garnered 13.1 million viewers on cable, according to producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey.
According to a report in Today, The Bible smote the competition — including the networks — and became cable’s most-watched programme this year.
Mr Burnett said, ‘Today, more people are discussing God’s chosen people — Moses and Abraham — in one day than ever before.
‘The hand of God was on this. The edit came together perfectly, the actors came together perfectly and it just comes to life’.
