60 Minutes is still ticking away. Today, CBS announced they’ve renewed the TV show for its 52nd season.
The long-running news program features investigative reports, interviews, human interest segments, and news-maker profiles. Correspondents and contributors include Steve Kroft, Lesley Stahl, L. Jon Wertheim, Scott Pelley, Lara Logan, Bill Whitaker, Anderson Cooper, Norah O’Donnell, and Sharyn Alfonsi.
60 Minutes has been one of CBS‘ top-rated programs for nearly 50 years so it’s no wonder why the show’s been renewed for a 52nd season. So far, season 51 is averaging a 1.25 rating in the 18-49 demo and 10.255 million viewers. That’s only about an 9% drop in the ratings from last year. Not too bad.
