60 MINUTES


Began its 49th 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 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.
