More than 1.2 billion Catholics now have their new leader - Pope Francis, the first non-European pontiff.
Jorge Bergogolio, who served as archbishop of Buenos Aires, took the name Francis shortly after being elected by cardinals in what was apparently the fifth round of voting on the second day of the conclave.
"It seems to me that my brother cardinals have chosen one who is from faraway. ... Here I am. I would like to thank you for your embrace," Francis said.
Erin Burnett talks to the co-creator of the History Channel's "The Bible," Roma Downey about her reaction to the new pope.
'The Bible' is a 10-hour live-action miniseries based on the bible. The first episode of the miniseries aired March 3 and was seen by 13.1 million viewers, rating higher than any show on the major broadcast networks.
