The Easter night musical which starred John Legend as Jesus Christ, Brandon Vicor Dixon as Judas, and Sara Bareilles as Mary Magdalene, posted a 6.0 overnight rating/10 share in the 56 metered-markets monitored by Nielsen, according to early reports.

With those numbers, Jesus Christ Superstar Live beat out, A Christmas Story LiveHairspray Live, and Fox’s The Passion  which aired in 2016.

Legend as Jesus, and Dixon as Judas was a good match for the live show.
