This morning, “Face the Nation” begins its 60th year on CBS. The broadcast, which expanded to one hour in many markets in 2012, was the most-watched Sunday public affairs program for the 2012-2013 season. It’s the first time “FTN” was tops since Nielsen’s People Meters were first rolled out in 1987. It also had its best total viewer delivery since the 1992-1993 season.
This morning, in promoting his program on WCBS, host Bob Schieffer joked, “I would like to clear up one thing to those of you who may be wondering, I have not been here for the entire 60 years, only the last 23.” Schieffer’s guest this morning is Senate majority leader Harry Reid.
NBC’s “Meet the Press,” the longest-running series on American TV, will mark 67 years on the air later this year.
