After being knocked into second place a year ago, when it competed against basketball, Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments , starring Charlton Heston as Moses, averaged 7.05 million viewers. That compares with the dismal 5.88 million who tuned in for the ABC telecast of the Easter/Passover classic a year ago. In 2009, ABC's telecast of Commandments drew 6,6.81 million. In 2007 and 2008 it drew 7.87 million and 7.91 million respectively. In 2006 the network debuted a two-part Ten Commandments miniseries with Dougray Scott in the Heston role. Although it took a drubbing from critics, it Nevertheless attracted more than 14 million viewers. But that was on a Monday and Tuesday, when far more people are watching TV than on a Saturday.
