With NCAA Lead-In “60” in Top 10 Again


By Chris Ariens Comment

Sunday’s 60 Minutes was the 8th most-watched show in the U.S. last week. It’s the second straight week it made the top 10 and currently ranks #13 for the season. Compared to the same night last year, the CBS news magazine is up 8% in both Total Viewers and A25-54.

The show was given a boost by the late-running UNC – Oklahoma NCAA tournament game but might have done even better if NBC’s coverage of Tiger Woods’ comeback victory at the PGA Tour’s Bay Hill event had finished earlier than it did. NBC Sports coverage run until just before 8pmET.
