CBS announced today that 60 Minutes will not be broadcast on Sunday Feb. 3 due to Super Bowl XLVII coverage this weekend.

"60 Minutes," the most successful television broadcast in history, began its 44th season on Sept. 25, 2011. Offering hard-hitting investigative reports, interviews, feature segments and profiles of people in the news, the broadcast begun in 1968 is still a hit in 2011, regularly making Nielsen's Top 10. Over the 2010-2011 season, "60 Minutes" continued its dominance as the number-one news program, drawing an average of 13.36 million viewers per week - a 1 percent increase over last season, more than twice the audiences of its network news magazine competitors and more than five million viewers ahead of the most-watched daily network evening news broadcast. The average audience for a "60 Minutes" broadcast still dwarfs the biggest audiences drawn by cable news programs.

60 MIHUTES' correspondents and contributing correspondents include Anderson Cooper, Steve Kroft, Sanjay Gupta; Lara Logan, Scott Pelley, Byron Pitts, Morley Safer, Bob Simon and Lesley Stahl.
