[via press release from CBS]

"60 MINUTES" DRAWS 17.7 MILLION VIEWERS - ITS LARGEST AUDIENCE IN NEARLY TWO YEARS -- TO FINISH AT #4 - ITS HIGHEST IN-SEASON WEEKLY RANK IN ALMOST A YEAR

The 60 MINUTES iPad App is Also a Hit, Reaching #1 Grossing App Overall In its First Week in the App Store

60 MINUTES drew its largest audience in nearly two years, attracting 17.73 million viewers, its best delivery since December 2008. The large audience put the broadcast at #4 on Nielsen's weekly list - its highest in-season weekly ranking in nearly a year. It was also the fifth time in nine weeks that 60 MINUTES, America's #1 news program, made the top 10.

The broadcast tied for #4 in households, posting an 11.1 rating and an 18 share, according to Nielsen live-plus-same-day ratings for Sunday, Nov. 21.

The new 60 MINUTES iPad app is also a hit. The first stand-alone news magazine iPad app premiered last week and reached the #1 grossing app overall in the App Store for the iPad device.

Sunday's (21) 60 MINUTES featured Armen Keteyian's interview with the DEA agents who lured and arrested the accused international arms dealer Viktor Bout, Steve Kroft's profile of world-famous microbiologist J. Craig Venter, and Lara Logan's profile of actor-producer Mark Wahlberg.

Jeff Fager is the executive producer of 60 MINUTES.
