“Long-suffering CBS News has something to brag about — and it hasn’t even heard from Katie Couric,” the AP says.

The venerable 60 Minutes landed among Nielsen Media Research’s top-10 shows with its most-watched episode since January. Nielsen’s top 10 was long a familiar home for 60 Minutes, but not in the past few years as its ratings have faded. Ed Bradley‘s profile of Tiger Woods undoubtedly lured a sports-minded audience that had been watching the NCAA men’s basketball tournament on Sunday.”

> Also: Last week, the CBS Evening News “finished closer in the ratings to ABC’s World News Tonight than it has in four years, Nielsen said.” ABC “had nearly one million viewers fewer than the same week last year, when Peter Jennings was the anchor.”
