r1, did I stutter? "The Bible" is the most successful tv miniseries in history in terms of ratings, and sales. The amount of viewers it has (100 million) is insane. It's #1 outside of the US too. It's the #1 new cable series this year too. Back in March, it was #1 for Sunday night television and that includes network. It's a television phenomenon. My question is: why? The History Channel has done shows on the Bible before. Why is this one so huge with audiences? Is there frontal nudity?

Roots is the third-highest-rated broadcast of all time, OP, behind the Mash finale and the Who Shot J.R.? episode of Dallas. The Bible is not more successful than Roots.

"The Bible" isn't even the most successful miniseries in the history of The History Channel. "The Hatfields and The McCoys" scored higher ratings.

Well I didn't watch it, OP.

Which channel was it on?
