Ever since 60 Minutes partnered with Showtime to launch a sports-centered show, there hasn't been a ton of soccer on there, but that is going to change this week. The show will be headlined by a feature on the United States, with player interviews and also one with Jurgen Klinsmann.
This is going to be the norm for the next five weeks leading up to the World Cup and then throughout the month in Brazil. Then maybe, if we cross our fingers, the U.S. will have success and the tournament will be a smash hit in the U.S. so things like this become the norm going forward.
The show debuts tonight at 9 p.m. on Showtime and will be replayed throughout the week on the various Showtime channels.
