Longest Top 10 Streak in 6 Years for ’60 Minutes’

By Chris Ariens Comment

Stahl60For the 7th week in a row, “60 Minutes” made the Top 10 list of most-watched broadcast programs. Sunday’s show was watched by 11.5 million viewers, good enough for 6th place. And that came against stiff competion from FOX’s broadcast of the Seahawks-Eagles game. This is the longest streak on the weekly list since Jan. 2009, a period which included Steve Kroft’s award-winning “The Price of Oil” story. Sunday’s show included another energy-related story: Lesley Stahl’s investigation of toxic coal ash waste in North Carolina.
