CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ Begins 60th Year

schiefferThis 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.
