History Channel's "The Bible" miniseries continues to draw audiences from across all platforms, including books, DVDs and downloads, as it heads into its finale, according to Grace Hill Media. The series, which has been viewed by close to 80 million people, has continued to outperform all other television shows on Sunday nights. It took over the No. 1 spot on iTunes for top TV show downloads, and is currently ranked No. 2 on the list of 100 on Amazon's bestsellers list in movies and TV. Executive producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett's novelization of the miniseries, The Bible: A Story of God and All of Us, which debuted Feb. 26, has also climbed to No. 10 on the Publishers Weekly top hardcover fiction list and No. 20 on the New York Times hardcover fiction list. "Roma and I continue to be grateful for the overwhelming global enthusiasm for 'The Bible' series," Burnett said. Downey added: "The audience reaction says so much about what people are looking for these days. We are just thrilled that we were able to bring these stories to life."
