’60 Minutes,’ with Madoff Interviews, is #5 Show of the Week

Sunday’s “60 Minutes” finished as the 5th most-watched primetime show of the week with 18.56 million Total Viewers — its largest audience in nearly a year and the best A25-54 and A18-49 performance in nearly three years.

With the Pittsburgh Steelers-New England Patriots NFL lead-in, the show featured Morley Safer‘s sitdowns with Ruth Madoff and her son Andrew — their first interviews since the ponzi scheme of Bernie Madoff was revealed in 2008.

This was “60 Minutes’” best viewership since Dec. 19. 2010 when the show had the Pittsburgh Steelers-New York Jets game as its lead-in.
