“Killing Jesus,” which aired on the National Geographic Channel on Sunday (March 29), scored an all-time high for viewership at 3.7 million. Deadline reports the TV movie also received a rating of 1.0, the highest rating since the premiere of “Killing Kennedy” in Nov. 2013. 


Both “Killing Jesus” and “Killing Kennedy” were based off of books of the same titles by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard. 


“Killing Jesus” will be featured again on the Fox News Channel this Friday at 8:00 PM and on Easter Sunday at 8 PM. It will also air across the globe in 171 countries. 


The film features Haaz Sleiman as Jesus, Kelsey Grammer as King Herod and Stephen Moyer as Pontius Pilate.
