"60 MINUTES" IS #2

Scores Double-Digit Percentage Increases in Key Demos Over Same Night a Year Ago

Only the Grammys were watched by more Americans than 60 MINUTES last week. The broadcast drew 14.3 million viewers to land at #2, and delivered double-digit percentage increases to its audience compared to a year ago.

60 MINUTES came in at #3 in households, scoring an 8.8/14, according to Nielsen live-plus-same-day ratings for Jan. 26, 2014.

America's #1 news program won its time period in viewers, households and adults 25-54 (3.2/08). Compared to the same night last year, 60 MINUTES was up +16% in households, +23% in both adults 25-54 and viewers, +18% in adults 18-49.

It was the second time this month that 60 MINUTES made Nielsen's Top 10 and the fifth time this season the program made the top five on the list.

Sunday's broadcast featured a Scott Pelley story about the broken state of mental healthcare in the U.S., Morley Safer's report on a jobs program that puts disadvantaged youth into corporate jobs that seemed out of reach and Steve Kroft's interview with "Tonight Show" Host Jay Leno as he leaves late night television.

CBS News Chairman Jeff Fager is the executive producer of 60 MINUTES.
