Blockbuster ratings for “The Bible” mini-series confound Hollywood. “According to the latest Nielsens… Sunday night’s telecast of “The Bible”… managed to attract more viewers than anything on broadcast network NBC … during the entire week.” Well, to put it bluntly, radio attracts more viewers than NBC.

Apparently, Hollywood Christophobes hate Numbers.

With the lousy TV shows on these days a test pattern would beat everything on TV all week.

The best laugh in the whole story:

…”managed to attract more viewers than anything on broadcast network NBC … during the entire week. ”

Now that’s funny, the National Barack Channel can’t beat one show on the History channel with everything it has…Throw in CNBC and PMSNBC and this mini-series still has more viewers…Matt Lauer must be suicidal about now.

Hey Matt, I hear Gabby Giffords husband Mark Kelly has an AR-15 he’s looking to get rid of.

Matt would need something shorter, the rifle would be too complicated for him to figure out….Better yet just go the way of a lot of other “celebrities”….Get a bottle of scotch and a hand full of pills…and goodnight.

Paint drying would draw more viewers than any NBC program.

Hilariously, the hollywood brain trusts have been inhaling fully, the bullshit lefty exhaust about how our country is a majority of lefties-unfortunately for hollywood, its just the opposite, no matter how many times Josef Goebbels, I mean David Axlerod says it. Oddly, the studios are rushing to get epic Moses pictures cast and camera ready, as well as some other “religious” films. They are always 2 steps behind America, and thus reality. I am embarrassed to say that I work with those twits!

I’ll stick with the Charles Heston movie.. It was done with class, the idea of Hollywood doing anything religious without either screwing it up or putting a leftward leaning slant on makes me shake my head in disgust . Because of this mini-series, NOW Hollywood is interested, interested in cashing in is all.

Yeah – how long before Jesus is cast as really a WOMAN, who hid her identity and presented as a guy? That’s why there is no history of “him” before he came out. That should get some libtard viewers, right?

I’m surprised they haven’t already done Jesus as a cross dressing lesbian.

I picture Mohammed as a creepy, Snidely Whiplash type character, peeking into elementary school bathrooms for his next date.

It has been psited by the stuopids that he was gay. Hence the all the apostles were men. They never look at things in context of the time in which it occured.

With the advances in special effects, I was wondering why Hollywood wouldn’t do some modern Moses movies. It seems like a mint could be made.

Why wait on Hollywood.. The market is there, get some kick starter action going. Burnett is showing the way

Hollywierd is realizing that people are getting sick of the brain numbing anti-American drivel that passes for programming these days.

Either you can watch reality shows, OR crime shows (no violence there huh?) Network TV is a waste of space, their audience is shrinking and nobody trusts their news programs. By the way there hasn’t been a good crime show since the 70′s, and do I really care if Dee Snyder (twisted Sister) is on Trump’s show? No. Do I care about dancing with the stars? No. Do I watch network news? Hell no. If Neilson installed a ratings device on my tv you might get a half hour total time of network tv. The rest would be shows on cable, Even reruns on the Military Channel are more interesting than what’s on American Idol.

Maybe those people in Hollywood are confounded as to how we aren’t all brainwashed sheeple? I, for one, think we need more of the message Jesus gave to us all. He taught peace, respect, and love for one another, even for our enemies. The message and teachings of Him are exactly what this troubled nation needs today.

The only thing I love about my enemies…… is grinding their skulls under my boot. Guess I’m just kinda old testament that way.

You’re the second person I know to endorse “Vikings”. I recommend “The Americans” if you aren’t already watching it. The over the air networks are becoming as obsolete as buggies and their whips.

Will do.. we have all of them recorded except the 1st maybe 2nd episode.. We just let it slip due to time.. hopefully Comcast still streaming the first couple.

Also, if you want to see Dems being bad.. try out House of Cards if you have Netflix. Kevin Spacey’s pretty damn stellar. The politics gets brutal

Finally saw the first episode of The Bible. Well done I thought. Vikings was good too. I’ll look out for House of Cards after Walking Dead finishes up. Too much good TV for the time available. Never thought I would say that.
