Thanks to a thrilling, high scoring, last second NFL game as its lead-in, “60 Minutes” had its best showing since last December. The Broncos/Cowboys game propelled “60 Minutes” to the No. 1 show Sunday night and the No. 3 primetime show of the week. The broadcast drew 18 million viewers and delivered its best rating in the key demos since Dec. 16, 2012.
Sunday’s broadcast featured Steve Kroft’s report on the federal disability insurance program, Lara Logan’s story on the battle that inspired the film, “Black Hawk Down,” and an Anderson Cooper segment on potentially dangerous near-Earth objects such as comets and asteroids.
