CBS News’ 48 HOURS: “Honor and Dishonor” (10:00-11:00 PM) was first in viewers, adults 25-55, adults 18-49, and households, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for Feb. 16. 48 HOURS posted a 4.0/07 with 5.81m viewers, a 1.4/04 in adults 25-54 and a 0.9/03 with adults 18-49.

Saturday’s broadcast featured Richard Schlesinger and the 48 HOURS team’s rare look inside the Army’s Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAG) judicial system as it handled a double murder case against a decorated soldier at Fort Campbell, Ky. Sgt. Brent Burke had been tried four times in civilian courts for the murders and each time the case ended in a mistrial. Then the Army’s JAG stepped in and allowed 48 HOURS access to both prosecutors and the defense as Burke’s case played out.

Atticus Brady and Marcus Balsam are the editors. Peter Schweitzer is the senior producer. Susan Zirinsky is the senior executive producer.
