For the second straight week, “60 Minutes” was one of the 10 most-watched shows in America. The CBS Newsmagazine finished #10 with 13.29 million Total Viewers. Sunday’s broadcast featured Lesley Stahl‘s interview with GE chairman & CEO Jeff Immelt, who talked about his parents’ cable news viewing habits.
“My parents are really right-wingers,” Immelt is heard telling a group of GE managers during Stahl’s piece. “My dad watches, like, five or six hours of Fox News every day. So I called home and said, ‘Hey, just to give you a heads-up… I’m going to be with the president and he’s asked me to lead this jobs council.’ And my mother said, ‘Well, you said no, of course, didn’t you?’ (laughter) ‘No, mom, that’s not what I said.’” Here’s the story:
