ACROSS THE BOARD CBS NEWS' ORIGINAL REPORTING IS DRAWING MORE VIEWERS THAN A YEAR AGO, WITH 180.9 MILLION PEOPLE WATCHING ALL OR PART OF A CBS NEWS BROADCAST, SINCE SEPTEMBER

Every CBS News broadcast - morning, evening and primetime - is drawing more viewers now, than at this point a year ago, according to Nielsen television year-to-date ratings, through the week ending June 12, 2015.

In fact, since the television year began on Sept. 22, 2104, an estimated 180.9 million people have watched all or part of a CBS News broadcast, some 74.7 million of them in the advertiser-desired 25-54 demographic, according to Nielsen most-current ratings.

The draw of CBS News' original reporting is across the board, including: CBS EVENING NEWS WITH SCOTT PELLEY; 60 MINUTES, FACE THE NATION, CBS THIS MORNING, CBS SUNDAY MORNING WITH CHARLES OSGOOD; 48 HOURS; and CBS THIS MORNING SATURDAY.

CBS News broadcasts last week featured Holly Williams and Anthony Mason's reports on the economic turmoil in Greece; John Dickerson's interview of Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH); Lee Cowan's profile of country star Alan Jackson; Peter Van Sant's investigation into the murder of an Arizona entrepreneur and gambler; Bill Whitaker's report on a heist of Swiss bank computer files; and Jan Crawford's report on a movement to governors running for the White House to give up their day jobs.
