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.
60 Minutes is not a cheap program to make for the network, but CBS knows people need news about the events happening in this country more than ever.
What do you think? Will you continue to watch new episodes of 60 Minutes on CBS?
60 minutes is the way I keep up on things! It is excellent in its presentation, please stay on the air! Connie grisham
60 Minutes features many human interest stories and also includes science wins and the hard
persistence that was required for the idea to become known fact. World events are also covered in an often riveting way to include the disparities of war or the saving of the Siberian tiger. 60 Minutes somehow inspires all of it’s viewers to be the best we can possibly be!!
Yes, I will continue watching!
There is no other tv program like 60 minuets. I look forward to it.
Please keep 60 minutes. I come home after church every Sunday night to watch the wide range of program content from knowledgeable CBS reporters.
Yes, I will continue to watch every episode 60minutes produces. I know of no other respected tv program that can expose corruption, get closer to the truth and help make a change in the “state of the union”than 60Minutes. The heath of my soul needs your series.
Sixty Minutes is an important program to this country. I would also like to see it offered as well at a different time. Perhaps a cablecast if CBS can do that.
Sixty Minutes needs to continue. It’s reporting and exposure to information is so vital for the preservation of Our beautiful country.
Yes yes yes!!!
Yes. Definitely! I think 60 Minutes is offering a great service to this country in a time where unbiased in depth news reporting regarding all aspects of what affects us, broadcast on a station that all have easy access to is a great decision by CBS. Thank you.
I’m sure CBS would love to cancel 60 Minutes because it’s “not cheap to produce” & because they are so cost conscious! But it’s a 52 year institution & garners high ratings. Look at how they recently cancelled Man With A Plan because of its cost despite decent ratings. And don’t get me going on TOMMY being axed after an amazing first season!
Don’t ever stop 60 Minutes — A really outstanding program
I will watch. I went looking for it tonight. But it’s back next weekend! Yay!
I will always watch 60 Minutes. I’m sorry I didn’t have all of them on video.
I was shocked when I couldn’t find it last night, glad to hear it will continue. It’s a trusted program that America needs.
