Genesis and Exodus, the first installment of a History Channel miniseries on the Bible, drew more than 13.1 million viewers, a greater number than AMC’s The Walking Dead (11.3 million), reported Nielsen. Producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett have said they see the series as a way to encourage people to read Scripture. “God beats zombies! Guess it pays to be eternal vs. immortal!” Burnett later commented on Twitter.
