"60 MINUTES" FINISHES SEASON WITH BACK-TO-BACK WINS AS THE WEEKLY #1 PRIMETIME PROGRAM

The CBS Newsmagazine Was the #1 Broadcast Six Times in 2019-2020 Season

Made Nielsen's Top 10 in 25 out of 28 Telecasts

60 MINUTES was America's #1 broadcast for the second straight week, capping a remarkable season in which the CBS newsmagazine topped the Nielsen list six times. Sunday's edition drew 9.9 million viewers, 18% more than the same night last year.

60 MINUTES also had back-to-back #1 weekly finishes last season in the weeks ending March 24 and 31, 2019.

The broadcast spent nearly the whole season in the top 10, making the list 25 out of 28 times. Over its last 13 telecasts, 60 MINUTES landed at #5 or higher on the Nielsen list.

All six weekly top-ranked editions of 60 MINUTES featured reports on the coronavirus epidemic, including this past Sunday's lineup with Scott Pelley's interview of the Fed chair, Jerome Powell, and the Norah O'Donnell interview of government whistleblower Rick Bright.

Other standout coronavirus segments from the winning weeks are Lesley Stahl's investigation into charges of unsafe workplace conditions at Amazon; Bill Whitaker's look at how artificial intelligence may be the future in mapping contagions; Dr. Jon LaPook's interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; and David Martin's report on the effects of the outbreak on the U.S. military.

The rest of the 2019-2020 season highlights feature Sharyn Alfonsi's investigation of the effect of lead poisoning on the children of Flint, Mich.; John Dickerson's segment on the historic flooding of Venice; Anderson Cooper's profile of Bernie Sanders; Jon Wertheim's story about recovering and playing the music composed by victims of the Holocaust; and Holly Williams' report on the devastating fires in Australia.

60 MINUTES averaged 10.4 million viewers over its 52nd season, making it America's most-watched news program. Bill Owens is the executive producer of 60 MINUTES.
