Last night's episode of "60 Minutes" featuring an interview with porn actress Stormy Daniels was a huge ratings boost for CBS.
So how many people watched last night? The initial overnight ratings hit 16.3/27 in the 56 Nielsen metered markets – a big night for Stormy, being way up compared with previous Sunday’s 7.6/13.
Steve Kroft’s interview with Barack and Michelle Obama in November 2008, shortly after he was elected president had attracted 24.5 million viewers. Back on November 16, 2008, the Obamas’ interview clocked a metered-marked 17.4/26.
The interview with Daniels started 30 minutes late because of an NCAA basketball game.
