CBS's 60 MINUTES Cracks Nielsen's Top 10 For Third Time in Five Weeks

CBS's 60 MINUTES made Nielsen's Top 10 List for the third time in five weeks. The broadcast drew 16.15 million viewers to land at #6 for the week.

The CBS News magazine also finished at #6 in households (10.3/15) and #10 in adults 25-54 (4.6/10), according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for Sunday, Dec. 2, 2012.

Sunday's broadcast featured Steve Kroft's investigation of for-profit hospital chain HMA, Anderson Cooper's interview with North Korean defector Shin Dong-hyuk and Bob Simon's report on two adventurers who hope to fly their solar-powered plane around the world.

CBS News Chairman Jeff Fager is the executive producer of 60 MINUTES, America's #1 news program.

"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.
