60 Minutes

This is one of those posts that has a little bit of everything in it! More on the 60 Minutes report a bit later in the post.

The picture for the puzzle this week comes from a screen cap that I grabbed from a AC360 program earlier this month.

For anyone who has gotten really good at these puzzles or just enjoys a challenge- here's the super hard version of the same puzzle (240 identical pieces!!):

The 360 in :60 clip is really short this week. I only have Friday’s episode- and who filled in for Anderson? Miles O’Brien.

CNN.com has a two hour behind the scenes look at CNN Heroes. The program is hosted by Naamua Delaney and takes a look at the 10 finalists as well as a few back stage and red carpet interviews. I’ve clipped together a few of the segments that included Anderson:

Anderson will be appearing on
the Late Show with David Letterman
on December 8th.

Thanks to Jaanza for giving us the head up on this!


And now…. onto 60 Minutes… Anderson’s latest report aired tonight. It was easy for me to get excited about this one simply because of the subject… I’m a fan of the Baltimore native Michael Phelps.

If you did not get to see the report, you can watch it on the 60 Minutes website or read the transcript:

Anderson not only spoke with Phelps, but also talked with his coach, his agent, and his mother (whom he brought to tears). Hope you can forgive me, it has been a while since we've seen Anderson on 60 Minutes and I went overboard on the screen caps:

I have to leave for work right now, so 60 Minutes and the puzzle (240 pieces? Oi...) will have to wait untill later.

BA, feel free to go overboard on screen caps anytime you like! Thanks for those.

I'm wearing my red ribbon and I truly hope that some day those horrible figures will go down instead of up!!!

Have a great day everyone!

Thanks for posting the 60 miuntes clip, we don't have it here in our country. I also hope you could post a clip of his guesting in Late Show with David Letterman. We do have Late Show here but it's 2 weeks delayed. Thanks!

60 Minutes was great. Honestly I think it was Anderson's best 60 Minutes piece. I liked when Michael was showing Anderson the food in his apartment and Anderson commented that it was a typical bachelor pad...LOL! I like Michael's apartment. I think it's nice.

Anderson seems obssessed with how much money the person he is interview is making. Somehow it always seems to come up.

For a man who is 41 Andseon is a very good swimmer. And he looks good shirtless too...LOL!!! He's so pale, but it's cute.

My only problem with the Phelps report was the montage of him yawning constantly. How many of you yawned in response? I did.

Nevertheless, it was a fun report. Anderson needs these fun un-serious jobs occasionally. And, of course, Anderson swimming! I'll never get tired of seeing that.

I don't know if it's the lighting or the cameras but Anderson's eyes look bluer when he's doing "60 Minutes."

The Phelps piece was about Anderson, not Michael Phelps. Sad

Oh wow. lovely screencaps!

Oh,there is NO such thing as going overboard on Andy clips!EVER!LOL

I loved that segment last night,just seeing him looking casual,with his hair not gelled up,and no makeup,he looked so handsome.



BUT WHERE WERE YOUR SEATBELTS,GUYS??

Phebe said...

Great post and terrific caps BA. I love the new flash show on the sidebar, thanks to Kristien for help with some of the new PIP2 photos.
And I second the thanks to Jaanza for the Letterman heads up. It takes a village to keep ATA going....thanks everyone for your help.

After having calmed down from probably 40 consecutive replays of the Uneven Race clips on Wednesday; too much food on Thanksgiving; revenge for too much food on Friday; and, serious shopping on Saturday - it was wonderful to relax and see the entire Michael Phelps piece on 60 Minutes.

One commenter this morning complains that the show was all about Anderson and not Phelps. Well, yes, sort of. It was about Andy's interaction with this amazing young man. The interviews with his agent, his coach and even his mom were similar to the furrowed brow same-old, same-old we see with the daily "panel". But, when Andy was with Micheal - he lit up like a Christmas tree! It wasn't just about seeing Andy in way-too-big trunks, then looking wet, gorgeous and ripped as he and his killer smile bobbed in the water after the race; Anonymous 8:43 was right, those shots in the booth with Andy watching Michael down mouth fulls of food which would choke you or I, were priceless. It IS all about Anderson and I, for one, am seriously glad to have a place to take that all in - right here on ATA.

I will be so glad to have him back on the air tonight - assuming he planned to return to NYC before yesterday's storms.

Thank you, too, for all the screen caps from that show. O

Can you post that puzzle pic as just a plain pic, you know,without all the puzzle lines?

I loved Anderson on 60 MInutes last night,

BUT,it makes me long so much for him to just ''go out there'' and do some field work,like he used to.

which is him at his finest,like his plumpynut segment,or the gorillas segment,that kind of thing.

He never goes,well anywhere anymore.

That being said,I DID missed him a LOT last week,and hope to see him back in his anchor chair tonight.

Phelps seems like a nice guy, if he has a huge ego somewhere he conceals it well. That was a sweet moment when his mom teared up a little when AC told her what Michael said she meant to him. When Michael fell out sleeping in his car with his mouth open, it reminded me of that PIP outtake where Anderson was doing the same thing in a helicopter. I'm very happy to see Anderson back on 60 Minutes and am looking forward to his other upcoming reports.

The caps are fantastic and even the AC puzzle pic is cute.

@6:31 Sorry, but I totally disagree with your statement. It was a pleasant and positive interview...not sure why you are reacting with such negativity. I thought the report gave us a brief glimpse into the many facets of Michael’s life now that he has been dubbed "the greatest athlete in the world." There is only so much you can show in the few minutes allotted for each report. To hear about Michael’s Olympic experience, endorsements, appearances, training, mother, eating habits, and get to see his new home...pretty darn good in my book! We heard about all of that in a few seconds. So when was the focus on Anderson? Did you really learn anything new about him other than to confirm his previous statements that he is as a pale as a newt ;) The only way I could see that the report was about Anderson is that he is naturally engaging and compelling when you turn the camera on him and it captures your attention. I loved seeing Anderson so relaxed, enjoyed the program, and would have loved to be a fly on the while to hear the entirety of his conversations with Michael.

Kristien said...

"60 Minutes" was great, I enjoyed watching it. (I do mean the entire report, though the swimming was my favorite bit ;p)

The PIP2 pics look great, they make me anxious to watch the show!

@Phebe: I'm happy to be part of the ATA village :D

snooks said...

Loved all the screen caps and I enjoyed the 60 minutes interview - it is great seeing Anderson relaxed and all smiles especially after all the horrible news lately

thanks for the alerts about Anderson on Letterman and Regis and Kelly -

Dear Book Asylum: Is there a way to get the screen grab you used for the puzzle? It's such a great picture of Anderson, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd like to add it to my collection. (I'd have to stop typing for a month to see my entire screen saver! :)

em @ 1:15 PM and others: I agree, it was a pleasant and good interview. Does anyone get google alerts for Anderson? I do. As soon at the swimming section hit the internet, I have received many alerts on the exact same thing, and bombarded with them today, all on the swimming segment and Anderson's physique and so on. and the ratings were through the roof.

You are going to have a very hard time convincing me that the bathing suit segment was not the reason for that.

Yes, a good interview, it was.

As a totally objective commenter, at least I try to be, I disagree that the interview on 60 Minutes was all about AC. HERE it's all about AC, but not on 60 Minues!
Michael Phelps needs to learn manners. I don't care how tired he was, you don't fall asleep during an interview with Anderson Cooper. I don't think Phelp's ego is in check. The attention has gone to his head, obviously.
Also, 60 Minutes was #1, just two weeks ago, without Anderson.

Pati Mc said...

HE'S BAACCK! Yes!

And Larry teased him, calling him "Anderson Cooper The Swimmer". Anderson replied, "I will not quit my day job...I mean, night job".

Aw, so self-depricating! I think that he did very well. As an old swim teamer myself, I can say that he dove quite well and swam with solid form, and strength. Too hard on himself, as always, just sayin'.

This not a comment about the swim event. It is a comment about the amount of money Bill Clinton presumably made during his speaking engagements abroad. I belive David Gergen said around $425,000 an hour. That is obscene in this economic environment....in any environment and I'm glad he supposedly will no longer be getting that amt. of money as soon as Hillary takes her position. This is why the Clintons are polarizing. How can Bill, Bubba, whatever you want to call him, "feel our pain," asking and accepting that kind of money?
Sorry this isn't about Anderson,
but to Jaanza, yes, AC's eyes did appear bluer on 60 Minutes. Maybe it's the lighting.
