'Killing Kennedy' gets big tune-in for network

NEW YORK (AP) - Viewers of the National Geographic Channel are slightly more interested in the Kennedy assassination than the killing of Abraham Lincoln- enough to set a viewing record for the 12-year-old network.

The "Killing Kennedy" film with Rob Lowe portraying the former president was watched by 3.4 million people Sunday night. The Nielsen company said Monday that edged last winter's telecast of "Killing Lincoln" to become the most-watched show ever on the network, by a mere 3,000 viewers.

Both assassination efforts are based on books by Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly. Production is to begin early next year on "Killing Jesus."

National Geographic said it will rerun "Killing Kennedy" twice this Friday.
