60 Minutes – Sunday October 31, 2004

It looks like the Al Qaqaa story is off, but in it’s place is this:

IN HARM’S WAY – Even though roadside explosive devices account for half of all the war’s U.S. casualties, soldiers are still getting killed and wounded by them because the Pentagon hasn’t provided enough fully-armored vehicles to protect them. Steve Kroft reports.


Of course the report people remember will be this one:

When Ashlee Simpson ran off the “Saturday Night Live” stage last week after her lip-sync flap, 60 Minutes cameras were there to record her embarrassing exit, and the reaction from show creator Lorne Michaels and other shocked staff members of the show.

The exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the incident will be part of a Lesley Stahl report about the making of the venerable comedy program, to be broadcast on 60 Minutes, Sunday, Oct. 31, at 7 p.m. ET/PT.I can’t wait.
