CBS shows '60 Minutes', 'Young Sheldon', and 'Blue Bloods' also drew in over eight million viewers each during primetime. The coronavirus outbreak in the United States is expected to impact TV viewing as individuals self-isolate and enjoy media from home in place of being able to attend events, visit cinemas, or engage in their usual social activities.
