NEW YORK, Dec. 6 (UPI) -- "Tin Man," Sci Fi Channel's re-imagining of L. Frank Baum's "Wonderful Wizard of Oz," was 2007's most-watched U.S. cable mini-series.

The three-part event, which aired Sunday through Tuesday, has earned the highest ratings of any program in Sci Fi Channel history, the channel said in a statement.

During its three-part, prime-time run, "Tin Man" averaged 5.3 million total viewers a night -- meaning more people tuned in for it than watched Sci Fi's previous biggest hits "Steven Spielberg Presents Taken" and "Frank Herbert's Dune."

Sci Fi said it will rebroadcast "Tin Man" -- starring Zooey Deschanel, Alan Cumming, Neal McDonough and Kathleen Robertson -- in its entirety Sunday.
