NEW YORK – Sept. 14, 2022 – Watch magazine’s Sept./Oct. issue, available now digitally and on newsstands as of Sept. 20, features two covers: the remarkable CBS News correspondents of legendary #1 news program, 60 MINUTES, which is celebrating its 55th anniversary; and the stars playing the “livings” and ghosts on TV’s #1 new show (#1 comedy series on Paramount+), GHOSTS, which is entering its sophomore season on CBS.

World-class 60 MINUTES journalists Lesley Stahl, Scott Pelley, Bill Whitaker, Jon Wertheim, Sharyn Alfonsi and Anderson Cooper were photographed for Watch by Joe Pugliese. Along with their highly esteemed executive producer, Bill Owens, the team spoke to writer Lisa Kennedy about the start of their careers at CBS News; how it felt to become part of the most successful broadcast in TV history (which begins its 55th season on Sunday, Sept. 18), where the guiding lights of the late correspondents Morley Safer, Mike Wallace and Ed Bradley still loom large; what they see as their most memorable, impactful and, in some cases, most challenging stories; and how Owens and their colleagues help keep the bar high.

For their Watch shoot at a Malibu, Calif. estate, the easy camaraderie of GHOSTS stars Rose McIver, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Brandon Scott Jones, Richie Moriarty, Danielle Pinnock, Asher Grodman, Román Zaragoza, Sheila Carrasco, Rebecca Wisocky and Devan Chandler Long was unmistakable as they gathered to be styled by Heidi Meek and photographed by Ramona Rosales. During their interview with writer Jim Colucci, the celebrated cast of TV’s #1 new show (and #1 comedy series on Paramount+), which begins its second season Thursday, Sept. 29 on CBS, discussed their characters, the “special sauce” of the show, their favorite season one moments, who gets the most laughs from their co-stars during filming and who/where they’d like to haunt! Colucci also talked to GHOSTS executive producers Joe Port and Joe Wiseman, who revealed what it took to make the original British series more “American, “and the fun challenge involved in finding reasons to have the ghosts on the property.

Additionally, this edition of Watch includes behind-the-scenes details from the hosts of the series from CBS’ All-Reality Wednesdays (also available on Paramount+): Phil Keoghan (THE AMAZING RACE, which will commemorate its 400th episode during its 34th season, premiering Wednesday, Sept. 21, 10 PM, ET/PT), Jeff Probst (SURVIVOR, which begins season 43 with a two-hour episode, 8 PM, ET/PT) and real-life wife and husband team Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell (THE REAL LOVE BOAT, the new reality romance adventure series, which sets sail for the season Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 9 PM, ET/PT).
