As Twitchy reported last week, the History Channel’s “The Bible” TV series debuted on March 3 with a whopping 14.8 million viewers tuning in.

Judging from the Twitter traffic, the second installment airing tonight has viewers just as riveted.  Who wouldn’t be? Tonight’s program features the story of Samson and Delilah.
