The second two-hour installment of History‘s 10-part miniseries The Bible on Sunday drew 10.8 million total viewers, 3.2 adults 18-49 and 3.8 million adults 25-54. That was down 18% in total viewers from the mini’s blockbuster opener the previous Sunday but still a massive turnout for a cable telecast. In fact, The Bible was the top program in all of television from 8-10 PM on Sunday among total viewers and 25-54, beating cable and broadcast competition. The Bible‘s lead-out, the second episode of new History series Vikings (4.6 million, 1.7 million adults 18-49, 1.9 million adults 25-54) also was down from its big premiere — off by 26% in total viewers. It still was the most watched cable series in the 10 PM hour and TV’s No. 1 show among men 25-54.
