The History Channel made some history of its own last week.
The network, which usually measures its audience in the hundreds of thousands, showed the most-watched event in prime-time television last week, not just once but three times.
The Nielsen Company said this morning that the third part of the Hatfields & McCoys miniseries was seen by 14.3 million people, after the first two parts registered 13.9 million and 13.1 million.
The top program on the so-called "big four" networks was NBC's America's Got Talent, which was seen by 11.5 million people. Cable television hasn't seen Hatfields & McCoys-type numbers since last year's MTV Video Music Awards or 2007's High School Musical 2.
