60 Minutes To Become "90 Minutes" Thanks To Football

Six episodes will be fleshed out an extra half hour this season thanks to football. It will be a helpful addition especially considering the Hollywood strikes means CBS doesn't have a lot else to show.

The first elongated episode airs Oct. 8th after an NFL doubleheader. 

"There will generally be two extra pieces on the 90-minute nights, and correspondents are already lobbying for more time to tell their stories. Extra producers have been brought in...The additional stories would likely lean toward feature or adventure fare, like one Bill Whitaker is preparing about a motorcycle race on the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea."
