"60 MINUTES" IS #8 FOR THE WEEK
TAKES SUNDAY NIGHT
60 MINUTES cracked the Top 10 once again, ranking #8 for the week in viewers. America's number-one news program drew 13.5 million viewers, giving it the largest audience Sunday (2) night, according to Nielsen live-plus-same-day ratings data.
In households, 60 MINUTES scored an 8.6/16, landing it at #7 for the week in that measurement. 60 MINUTES also won its time period in households, viewers, adults 25-54 (3.2/10), and adults 18-49 (2.2/08).
The broadcast featured a Scott Pelley story about a dangerous canal on the California-Mexico border in which more than 550 people have drowned Anderson Cooper's profile of award-winning Chef Jose Andres and Steve Kroft's interview with Conan O'Brien - the first the late-night comic has given since being forced to return The Tonight Show to Jay Leno.
Jeff Fager is the executive producer of 60 MINUTES.
