CBS's 60 MINUTES Makes Top 10 for Second Straight Week

60 MINUTES made the weekly top 10 for the second straight time, drawing 12.46 million viewers to finish at #9, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for Sunday, Oct. 1.
The CBS News magazine was also Sunday's #1 non-sports program in viewers, adults 25-54 (2.9/09) and adults 18-49 (2.1/08).

Sunday's 60 MINUTES featured Norah O'Donnell's interview with Rep. Steve Scalise, Bill Whitaker's report on the latest images from the Hubble Space Telescope and Sharyn Alfonsi's profile of 19-year-old American soccer star Christian Pulisic.

60 MINUTES, the most successful television broadcast in history, began its 49th season in September 2016. 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 2016, making Nielsen's Top 10 nearly every week. Over the 2015-2016 season, 60 MINUTES continued its dominance as the number-one news program, drawing an average of 12.3 million viewers per week - almost twice the audience of its nearest network news magazine competitor and three 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. Jeff Fager is the executive producer of 60 MINUTES, America's #1 news program.
