‘Killing Jesus’ Made It a Good Friday at FNC

By Brian Flood Comment

A week after National Geographic Channel set an all-time ratings record with the debut of “Killing Jesus,” the repeat on Fox News was the No. 1 show on Friday in both total viewers and the key A25-54 demo.

FNC’s encore presentation of “Killing Jesus”averaged 1.86 million viewers on Good Friday at 8pmET, a +16% increase in the demo over the network’ s Friday primetime Q1 average. The film, based on Bill O’Reilly‘s book, averaged 385K viewers in the demo, up +84% vs. the same timeslot on Good Friday last year.

FNC showed the film again at 11pmET the same night and averaged another 626K viewers, combining with the 8pmET airing for 2.49 total viewers. So, between Nat Geo and FNC… a lot of people have watched “Killing Jesus.”
