Rep. Steve Scalise Speaks for First Time Since Being Shot on This Week's 60 MINUTES

Rep. Steve Scalise (R.-LA.), the House Majority Whip who was shot at a Republican Congressional Baseball team practice last June, speaks to Norah O'Donnell in his first interview since the shooting. Scalise appears with his wife Jennifer to recount THE ATTACK and how he survived the life threatening gunshot wound. The interview will be broadcast on 60 MINUTES, Sunday, Oct. 1 (7:30-8:30 PM, ET/7:00-8:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network. O'Donnell announced the interview on CBS THIS MORNING.

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.
