"The Bible" Episode 3 on History Channel: Jesus Arrives
Episode 2 of "The Bible", epic new miniseries from History Channel, didn't post as high of ratings as week 1. Hard to compare with episode 1's 14 million viewers, episode 2, "Homeland/The Kingdom" attracted an impressive 10.8 million viewers, down 18 percent from the premiere. 3.2 million viewers were adults 18-49 (the demographic that determines advertising rates).
Were people turned off from episode 1, "Beginnings" or were the stories of Joshua defeating Jericho, Samson and Delilah, King Saul, David and Goliath, Bathsheba, and Solomon not as appealing to the average viewer.

The Birth of Christ, John Baptist, and Jesus and Peter will also be featured.
Roma Downey ("Touched By An Angel") and husband/producer mogul Mark Burnett ("Survivor", "The Voice", "Celebrity Apprentice") hit the ball out of the park with "The Bible" miniseries. It goes to show these episodes are filled with some of the most iconic, and still relevant stories ever told.
