Began its 47th season on the CBS Television Network in the fall.
ON AIR: Sundays (7:00-8:00 PM, ET)
FORMAT: 60 MINUTES, the most successful television broadcast in history, began its 47th season in September 2014. 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 2015, making Nielsen’s Top 10 list nine consecutive weeks in the fall of 2014. Over the 2013-2014 season, 60 MINUTES continued its dominance as the number-one news program, drawing an average of 12.2 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.
