Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing Lincoln” Movie based on his book of the same title set a viewership record for National Geographic.  The Sunday night 2-hour premier averaged 3.4 million viewers (1 million in the 25-54 demo).  Now we wait for National Geographic’s next DocuDrama, “Killing Kennedy” and also for Bill O’Reilly’s next book, “Killing Jesus” due out in September of this year…

Killing Lincoln From left, Geraldine Hughes, Billy Campbell and Jesse Johnson (playing John Wilkes Booth) in this docudrama on the National Geographic Channel, Sunday night at 8, Eastern and Pacific times; 7, Central time.

Tonight’s premier of “Killing Lincoln” on the National Geographic Channel (based on Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly’s best-selling book, co-authored by Martin Dugard) is a riveting account of President Abraham Lincoln’s last days (Happy Belated Birthday, President Lincoln).  I am such a big fan of President Abraham Lincoln that I’ll be watching / recording all three President Lincoln-themed movies tonight.  In the New York Times’ story, they also mention the other two movies airing tonight as a “Lincoln Trifecta”…

“…for anyone who can’t get enough of the 16th president, on Sunday it will be possible to arrange a Lincoln trifecta, seeing “Lincoln,” Salvador Litvak’s new film; “Saving Lincoln” (about the president’s bodyguard); and “Killing Lincoln” in a single day…”

I have included links to the write-up from the New York Times and also a tepid review from the Los Angeles Times…
