‘Killing Lincoln’ Sets Record for NatGeo

The film adaptation of Bill O’Reilly‘s “Killing Lincoln” gave National Geographic Channel its best viewership ever last night. 3.4 million people watched the film. O’Reilly made mention of the ratings on his Fox News show tonight.

The 8pmET airing drew a 2.6 rating, tied for second-best ever for the channel. In the A25-54 demo, the 2-hour film drew a 1.1, more than 175% higher than the channel’s 8–10 p.m average so far this year.

NatGeo has already announced it is producing a factual drama based on O’Reilly’s best-selling “Killing Kennedy.” As with “Killing Lincoln,” Ridley Scott‘s Scott Free Productions will produce the film, which begins production in the Spring.
