The Bible, produced by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, scored 13.1 million viewers and 4.6 million adults 25-54 during last night’s premiere. The 10-hour miniseries became the new year’s no.1 cable entertainment telecast.

Noah, starring Russell Crowe, is set to hit theaters next year, and Steven Spielberg has been connected to a Moses movie in recent weeks.
