New Talent on 60 Minutes is a YTMND created by Improviser on October 8, 2006. It is a play on the introduction to the CBS news magazine 60 Minutes, wherein each of the correspondents introduces him or herself with "I'm (insert name here)." After Ed Bradley, Steve Kroft, Leslie Stahl, Scott Pelley, and Morley Safer introduce themselves, it continues with other famous "I'm/I am" quotes from pop culture. These include Brian Fellow, a character on NBC's Saturday Night Live played by Tracy Morgan; Rick James as portrayed by Dave Chappelle on Chappelle's Show ("I'm Rick James, bitch!"); and Captain Planet, among others.

Rise in popularity

Within a week of its creation, New Talent on 60 Minutes topped the all-time top-rated with a 4.79 rating as of October 14, 2006. Some voters attributed their ratings, for better or for worse, to the site's ending, a screencap of 60 Minutes regular Andy Rooney accompanied by what is assumed to be Rooney saying "Poland." Some of said voters will infer that Improviser "remembered Poland", an obvious reference to the You Forgot Poland fad.

New Talent is also fourth on the "biggest favorites" list with 1,523 favorites, behind Holy shi* it's a Dinosaur! WTF? (1,842), We Didn't Start This Website! (2,000), and Cosby Bebop (3,088).


Due to requests from voters, New Talent on 60 Minutes has had some additions since its creation. Among the names in the current version of New Talent that were not in the original include Beavis ("I am Cornholio!"), the narrator from Fight Club ("I am Jack's raging bile duct"), and Arnold Schwarzenegger ("I'm Detective John Kimble" from Kindergarten Cop). Requested additions that Improviser has stated he will not make include "I'm the Juggernaut, bitch!" ("Rick James is already in so no Juggernaut," said Improviser) and Inigio Montoya from The Princess Bride (he says "My name is Inigio Montoya", not "I am Inigio Montoya."). Improviser contradicted an earlier statement by adding Ron Burgundy on October 23, 2006 in addition to adding Skeletor (from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe) and Troy McClure (a recurring character on The Simpsons voiced by the late Phil Hartman).

Upon Ed Bradley's death in November 2006, Improviser added a single-frame dedication to Bradley after Andy Rooney's "Poland." The frame reads "Dedicated to Ed Bradley, June 22 1941 - November 10, 2006."
