According to the Los Angeles Times on March 17, the new ABC television show "Resurrection" has strong ratings after only two episodes. Nielsen's numbers are pretty high early in the season for the show.

The second episode on Sunday, March 16 was enough to get viewers hooked. An average of 10.8 million people tuned in to follow residents of Arcadia, Missouri whose dead loved ones return.

Even though this number is down from 13.3 million people who watched the premiere show on March 9, it is still the top Sunday night show on all the regular networks such as ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in the advertiser-preferred age group of the 18-to-49 demographic.

While viewers probably know this is fictional, they look forward to seeing what will happen next.

"Resurrection" is an American fantasy drama television series about dead people who return to life. The series is based on the book "The Returned" by Jason Mott.

The series follows the residents of Arcadia, Missouri, whose lives are upended when their loved ones return from the dead at the same age they were when they died. The first one to return is Jacob Langston, an eight-year-old boy who drowned 32 years earlier. He was found alive in China and is brought back to America by an immigration agent played by Omar Epps. His surprise return makes the residents question this mystery.

More and more dead people will return to Arcadia as the series continues.

Have you watched "Resurrection" yet? Warning: If you watch one episode, you will probably be hooked on it to watch more.
