Scoop: 60 MINUTES on CBS - Sunday, May 7, 2017

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.

On this Sunday's show:

DEPORTED – Family and neighbors lament the recent deportation of a father, friend and business owner who had no criminal record and had lived in the U.S. for nearly 20 years. His wife and children were all U.S. citizens. Anderson Cooper reports. Andy Court and Sarah Fitzpatrick are the producers.

THE NUREMBERG PROSECUTOR – Ben Ferencz is the last living prosecutor from the Nuremberg trials after World War II. At 97, he recalls to Lesley Stahl in vivid detail prosecuting Nazi commanders for the murders of more than a million people, the largest killings outside the concentration camps. Shari Finkelstein and Nieves Zuberbuhler are the producers.

THEO AND JOE – Bill Whitaker gets the inside story from the Cub’s management and players on how they brought the World Series trophy to Chicago for the first time in 108 years. Robert Anderson and Aaron Weisz are the producers.
