** ''30 Minutes Bay Area'', a half-hour concept show created by Don Hewitt that aired in the mid-2000s on CBS' San Francisco station, KPIX-5; the concept was intended to air on the other CBS O&Os, but for some reason it never was used anywhere else.

It has seasons like most of American television, so in the off season they air partial re-runs, where they take articles run before and modify them slightly, perhaps slightly updating them (usually in the intro and ending commentaries). However, despite being in a ''really'' crummy timeslot for decades (7 PM Sundays) the only time it was pre-empted for sports was when CBS had the Olympics. If an NFL game runs late, ''60 Minutes'' is shown in its entirety and the rest of the PrimeTime lineup timeshifted back as long as necessary, though in some time zones this isn't necessary, as football is usually over by the time the show is supposed to start.

* ThePeteBest: In the 70s, the show would end with a segment called ''Point/counterpoint'' in which a Conservative and a Liberal would debate an issue of the day. TheWeirdAlEffect has made parodies of the segment in the movies ( "Airplane!") and TV ("Saturday Night Live") more familiar to modern audiences than the segment itself. In the early 80s the segment was replaced by the more familiar "A Few Minutes with Andy Rooney".

''60 Minutes'' remains a bastion of actually good reporting in the increasingly-barren wasteland of US network TV news. Aside from the [[NeverLiveItDown debacle with George Walker Bush's military service record]] (though that involved former sister program ''60 Minutes '''II''''' and not the mother show; ''II'' got canceled after awhile) and a story about the tobacco industry tamped down by [[ExecutiveMeddling CBS's outgoing owner]] which inspired the 1999 film ''TheInsider'', it would be hard to accuse it of reporting on anything but real, worthwhile news, unlike most of the rest of the US PrimeTimeNews shows. They've been particularly clear in not reporting on anything even remotely resembling a MissingWhiteWomanSyndrome story, which the others are positively flooded with. About the only thing to criticize is ProductPlacement interviews involving authors of books released by sister book publisher Simon & Schuster and some shilling of actors doing films for CBS Films, but that's about as bad as it gets usually. The former got them in trouble in November 2013, when a story about the September 11, 2012 Libyan embassy attack involving a witness who published a book with S&S described what he saw, but didn't actually see many of the events, was rushed to air and ended with the book pulled, and the producer of the story and correspondent Lara Logan taking a leave of absence in the aftermath after an apology which some found lacking.
