The Weekend Ticker: ’60 Minutes,’ The Onion, ‘Chained To My Ex’

  • Entertainment Weekly has named CBS newsmagaine “60 Minutes” one of its “Old Shows That Still Kick Ass.” “Expect 60 Minutes to outlive most of its audience,” the magazine quipped.

  • The Onion may be returning to TV, sort of. “The Onion News Network” may have been canceled, but CNBC reports that a new pilot, “a scripted comedy set behind the scenes of The Onion News Network,” has been picked up by Amazon. Visitors to Amazon.com will determine its fate as Amazon will pick up the shows that click with viewers.

  • Tonight at 9pmET, MSNBC will add a new program to its documentary block, “Chained To My Ex.” “Intervention” creator Sam Mettler and comedian Matt Ritter are behind the series, which profiles divorced couples who can’t move on with their lives.
