‘A.D.’ and ‘Ten Commandments’ Score in Easter Sunday Ratings

‘A.D.’ and ‘Ten Commandments’ Score in Easter Sunday Ratings April 6, 2015



The premiere of NBC’s A.D. The Bible Continues on Sunday drew 9.5 million total viewers and a 2.3 demo rating, topping all broadcast competition in both measures.

That marks the Peacock network’s highest-rated drama debut sans a Voice lead-in since The Cape in January 2011.

And even though it’s from 1956, “The Ten Commandments” saw an uptick in the ratings (yet another reason it’s epic, along with the 10 I wrote about here earlier today). Also from TVLine

ABC |The Ten Commandments (6.8 mil/1.4) was up 19 and 40 percent from last year, when it aired on a Saturday.

If you do God well, people who love God show up. Crazy, huh?
