Despite NFL and Emmy Competition, ’60 Minutes’ Powers To Number Six For Week

Sunday could have been a tough night in the ratings for CBS’ “60 Minutes.”

Despite interviews with President Obama and Mitt Romney, as well as a huge NFL lead-in, the newsmagazine was up against a big NFL game on NBC, and the Emmys on ABC.

Despite the tough competition (and likely thanks to the NFL lead-in and the big interviews), “60 Minutes” did just fine, drawing 12.6 million total viewers, enough to make it the number six primetime program for the week. For comparison, the Emmys drew 13.3 million viewers, while “Sunday Night Football” drew 21.3 million.
