NEW YORK (AP) - Flexing a little muscle paid off for Scott Pelley and CBS.

The Nielsen company said that the network’s “60 Minutes” finished among the ten most popular programs last week. The newsmagazine featured Pelley interviewing actor Hugh Jackman as they both worked out together. The newsman showed a ripped physique usually kept hidden under conservative suits when he anchors the “CBS Evening News.”

The week’s most popular show, as it is most weeks in the fall, was NBC’s Sunday night football telecast.

CBS‘ attempt to expand its popular Grammy Awards telecast with a prime-time telecast attached to the awards’ nominations failed to soar in the ratings.
