Tim Tebow Powers ’60 Minutes’ to #5 for the Week

Sunday’s “60 Minutes” was the 5th most-watched primetime program for the week, drawing more than 18 million viewers. The newsmagazine also put up its best ratings in the key demos in over three years: a 5.9 rating in A25-54 and a 4.8 in A18-49, best since November 16, 2008 when the show featured newly-elected Barack Obama.

“60″ got a major assist from its lead-in: the overtime Pittsburgh Steelers – Denver Broncos game, won by the Broncos with an 80-yard pass play on the first play of OT. The game was the most-watched Wild Card game in 18 years. The 7pm hour the game — which ran until about 8:10pmET — drew 41.9M viewers.

Sunday’s broadcast featured a Scott Pelley hidden-camera investigation of stem cell fraud, Lara Logan’s report on five sets of brothers serving in the Marines in Afghanistan and Lesley Stahl’s look at the world’s most expensive food, truffles.
