11 of CBS’s 19 News & Documentary Emmy Award nominations are for one program: the venerable 60 Minutes. The news magazine, which will celebrate 40 years on the air next year, is also the number one primetime news magazine on TV, finishing 26th in the 2006-07 season. By comparison, ABC’s 20/20 finished 75th and NBC’s Dateline: 93rd. Those two shows each got 4 noms.

Among the nominations for 60 Minutes, two stories reported by the late Ed Bradley: “Hunting the Homeless” and the story many believe lead to the eventual dismissal of charges against members of the Duke lacrosse team.
