Fox News Channel will re-air “Killing Jesus,” the film adaptation of Bill O’Reilly‘s best-selling book later this week. “Killing Jesus” will air Good Friday and Easter Sunday at 8pmET/PT.

The premiere of the film on NatGeo last night set record ratings for the network. “Killing Jesus” drew 3.7 million total viewers, the highest total viewership in history (and about what “The O’Reilly Factor” does on an average night).

The film averaged a 1.0 rating in the A25-54 demo, best since the premiere of another O’Reilly adaptation, “Killing Kennedy.”
