I looked it up to answer your question, and see I "only" get 48 channels as well, including:
2-1,2,3,4 TPT PBS
4-1 wcco CBS
5-1,2,3,4,5,6,7 KSTP ABC
9-1,2 KMSP Fox
11-1,2 KARE NBC
16-1,2,3,4,5 EWTN & SMB(?)
23-1,3 WUCW, ZUUS
29-1,2,3,4 WFTC, Bounce, Movies
33-1,2,3,4,5,6,7 K33LN & 3ABN
41-1,2,3,4,5,6 ION, quob, Shop QVC, HSN
I had honestly never counted before, just got that 60 something number from my TV after it completed scanning, as it said it found 60 something channels. Strange. Perhaps there is some technical difference between a "found" channel and what is viewable? I don't know. I just recall laughing with my wife when we both saw the scan report finding more than 60 channels. Never bothered to count them until now when you asked. I couldn't even tell you exactly what some of those channels are, without taking the time to go to each one individually.
In any event, 48 is more than I need, and I'll delete most of the shopping and religious channels anyway to clean things up a bit. I mainly just want PBS and ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, and ION. The rest are gravy.
EDIT: I should note that my antenna is pointing almost due north towards the Shoreview towers, so I have not really tried to pick up more distant signals to the south like Mankato. Nor have I bothered with trying to grab analog channels. Didn't even realize there were any still to be had any more!
