This news magazine will keep on ticking. CBS has renewed the venerable series for a 54th season.
One of the most successful and long-running series in American television history, 60 Minutes features investigative reports, interviews, human interest segments, and news-maker profiles. The CBS correspondents and contributors include John Dickerson, Lesley Stahl, Scott Pelley, Bill Whitaker, Anderson Cooper, Norah O’Donnell, Sharyn Alfonsi, and L. Jon Wertheim.
Airing on Sunday nights, the 53rd season of 60 Minutes averages a 1.15 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 10.12 million viewers in the live+same day ratings. Compared to season 52, that’s up by 10% in the demo and up by 5% in viewership — a rarity as more and more people move to streaming and delayed viewing.
What do you think? Do you enjoy the 60 Minutes TV series? Are you glad that it’s been renewed for a 54th season?
