The #1 news program really delivered in the key demos, finishing at #4 in both adults 25-54 (5.2/11) and adults 18-49 (4.0/10), with the latter rating the program’s best since Dec. 16, 2012.

Compared to last year, 60 MINUTES was up +21 percent each in viewers, adults 25-54 and adults 18-49, and was up +17 percent in households.

Sunday’s 60 MINUTES featured the news-breaking Scott Pelley investigation into the doping case against New York Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez produced by Michael Radutzky and a Lesley Stahl story about extremely rare people who can remember virtually every day of their lives.
