60 Minutes is staying on the air just a bit longer this season. The series usually wraps its season on the weekend before Memorial Day weekend, but this season is being extended due to the coronavirus pandemic, per The Washington Post. The news program has been covering the impact the shutdown has had on many people in the US.
Bill Owens, the executive producer of the news program, went to the head of CBS News about keeping the series on the air, and his plea worked. New episodes will air through June 28. New episodes will resume next weekend. The news program is taking the holiday weekend off.
What do you think? Will you continue to watch new episodes of 60 Minutes on CBS?
