The controversial Church of Scientology has proven to be a ratings-magnet for the US channel HBO, with its documentary, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, setting a ratings record.

According to overnight ratings data, roughly 1.7 million viewers in the United States tuned into the documentary which detailed, among other things, the shocking conditions for low-ranked workers in the church, and the history of its battle to win tax-free status.

That number is expected to double once subsequent broadcasts, DVR playback and plays on the HBO streaming service HBO Go are factored in.
