CBS to Preempt 60 MINUTES for AFC Championship Game

60 Minutes will be preempted this Sunday, Jan. 20, 2013 by CBS Sports' coverage of the American Football Conference Championship game between the Baltimore Ravens and the New England Patriots.

"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. Correspondents and contributing correspondents for the show include Anderson Cooper, Steve Kroft, Sanjay Gupta; Lara Logan, Scott Pelley, Byron Pitts, Morley Safer, Bob Simon and Lesley Stahl
