60 MINUTES is the Week's Top Non-Sports Program

Once again, 60 MINUTES was the # 1 non-sports program for the week. The CBS News magazine drew 12 million viewers to land at # 3, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for Sunday, Dec. 23. It was the second week in which only NFL Football drew larger primetime audiences than 60 MINUTES - which also bested the season 15 finale of "The Voice" on NBC (9.89 million).

It was 10th time in 13 weeks that 60 MINUTES made the Top 10 - seven times at # 5 or better.

Sunday's broadcast featured an Anderson Cooper report on how U.S. authorities caught a former CIA officer spying for the Chinese, a look at allegations of massive corruption on the island nation of Malta by Jon Wertheim and Bill Whitaker's story about the successful and controversial reintroduction of wolves to YELLOWSTONE Park.

Bill Owens is the executive editor of 60 MINUTES, America's # 1 news program.
