Meager ratings for "The Passion"


NEW YORK >> Fox's Bible-based musical "The Passion" worked no miracles on viewers.

The live telecast Sunday, hosted by Tyler Perry, drew a meager 6.6 million viewers, according to the Nielsen ratings company. That was roughly half the audience for Fox's January broadcast of "Grease: Live," seen by 12.2 million viewers.

"The Passion" originated from New Orleans, with stars including Trisha Yearwood, Chris Daughtry and Jencarlos Canela.
