'60 Minutes' goes into overtime

"60 Minutes," it turns out, wants more than an hour.

The long-running CBS newsmagazine is taking part of its act online, with a weekly feature called "Overtime."

Starting Sept. 26, the new site will feature three stories each week with original content, some drawn from the latest program and others from its archives. In short, a program launched in 1968 is going digital in 2010.

Says Executive Producer Jeff Fager: "So much goes into the reporting of a '60 Minutes' story and often there's more original material that doesn't make the broadcast, or interesting back stories we don't get to share with the viewer."

I am so glad that CBS is extending 60 minutes. I find that I am often out of pocket when 60 minutes airs, and I hate missing it. I had hoped they would run it again during the week or run it again later that day like MSNBC reruns some of their journalists.And if I miss Bill Mayer, on Friday night, because I'm out, they run it twice and again during the week. I love 60 minutes.
