What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the CBS television network, 60 Minutes was created by Don Hewitt and Bill Leonard in 1968. The longest-running series in network primetime, the program features investigative reports, interviews, human interest segments, and news-maker profiles. Three long-form news stories typically air each episode. The CBS News correspondents and contributors include Sharyn Alfonsi, Anderson Cooper, Seth Doane, Norah O’Donnell, Scott Pelley, Lesley Stahl, L. Jon Wertheim, and Bill Whitaker.
Season 55 Ratings
The 55th season of 60 Minutes averages a 1.17 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 8.67 million viewers. Compared to season 54, that’s up by 29% in the demo and up by 4% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (includes DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled.
