These are the TV show’s ratings for the Summer 2012 season, the best way to tell if 60 Minutes is going to be cancelled or renewed (though it’s already been renewed for season 46). Check out our CBS ratings report card to see how this show’s numbers compare with the others on the network.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
