For Second Year in a Row, Broncos-Patriots Give Boost to ’60 Minutes’

Drawing nearly 16 million viewers, CBS’s “60 Minutes” was the #3 show of the week — its highest weekly ranking since December 18, 2011, when the show was #2 for the week and had a New England Patriots / Denver Broncos lead-in. It just so happens those same two teams faced off this past Sunday, helping the show to 15.96 million viewers.

Sunday’s “60 Minutes” included a Steve Kroft investigation of Chinese telecom giant Huawei, Lesley Stahl’s story about Luxottica, the world’s dominant eyewear company, and a Bob Simon report on the amazing rise from obscurity of Detroit singer-songwriter Rodriguez (above).
