Many shows come and go on CBS but 60 Minutes keeps on coming back every season. It’s currently in its 46th year. Will the program ever end? Maybe someday! Stay tuned.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
3/13 update: This show has been renewed for the 2014-15 season by CBS.
6/16 update: You can see the latest night’s ratings in context here.

Last year comparison: The 45th season of 60 Minutes averaged a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 11.96 million total viewers.
Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
What do you think? Do you still like the 60 Minutes TV series? Do you watch consistently? Should it ever be cancelled?
I would really like to see more reporting by Anderson Cooper and Lara. They have very interesting perspectives and their styles of reporting are very clear and concise without being opinionated.
