After the wide success of the premiere episode of Preachers of LA, the people over at Oxygen have been smiling ear to ear as they received news that the new show broke ratings records for their network with church goers and sinners from all over the country tuning in to see how the controversial project would turn out..
The show was pretty impressive visually and I like the level of content and subjects that they chose to address, you can really tell that they have a great production budget since some of the imagery that was shown throughout the show was filmed well and looked very crisp which is a plus..
