“60 Minutes” drew another huge audience Sunday night — its largest in more than two years — making it the #3 show for the week.

The show, which had the lead-in of the New York Jets-Pittsburgh Steelers game, drew 18.7 million Total Viewers — “60’s” best deliveries in households, Total Viewers and A25-54 demo viewers since December 14, 2008. Sunday’s show featured a Steve Kroft report on the financial straits of America’s local governments and a Lesley Stahl piece about a small group of people who can recall nearly every day of their lives.
