11 Million Watch ’60 Minutes’ Mike Wallace Special

Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” which was an hour-long tribute to its founding correspondent Mike Wallace, was Sunday’s most-watched show, and the 8th most-watched primetime program of the past week, drawing 11.03 million viewers.

The show also won its time period in A25-54 viewers (2.4/07) and was up +14% percent over the same night last year (2.1/06). The increase in the key news demo is part of a trend for “60,” which is up +6% in A25-54 and +5% in A35-54 season-to-date.

The tribute to Wallace, who died last Saturday at the age of 93, consisted of interviews with him about his life and his work conducted by the 60 MINUTES correspondents with whom he worked.
