I didn't see all of the 10pm hour of 360 but what I did see, I think the 9pm hour was better. Anderson strong point seems to be the one on one sit down interview and I think that's why the 9pm hour is working for him. 360 needs to realize this and let Anderson do more one on one interviews for 360. I think it would make the show better.

Congratulations to Sanjay Gupta for being chosen by Forbes Magazine as one of the 3 most influential people in the United States. This is well deserved.
Having said that, I am upset by the shot AC showed of the dog that drowned in the floods in Brazil.
Many viewers tweeted him because he was remiss in recognizing that the girl dropped the dog as she clinged to safety.
For once the Ridiculist was right, in being just that, ridiculous!!
We all know AC did not ask anyone to over react for the cameras during the Gulf crisis. Haliburton must have had something to do with this "bad press" routine, or go"get the media. Things aren't as bad as they appear." Oh yes they were!!

It was good to see the Haiti report at the end of 360; all of the reports on the shooting, the shooter, gun laws and the recovery of Rep. Giffords (even though it was good news) got to be repetitive through the week.

Piers Morgan seems like a good guy and I'll try to catch his show sometime next week but not Monday because I've never been an Oprah fan. It's been fun watching him and Anderson talk together.

Don't know who decided to put Anderson on at 9 PM for the Larry King to Piers Morgan gap but overall it turned out pretty good. Last week at 9 was better simply because it was definitely different than 360 at 10. Of course the Arizona shooting had to be dealt with but it usually looked like they were doing the same program at 9 and at 10.

Though it was a credit to Anderson to be given the 9 hour even for a short time, I'm sure he'll be glad to get back to his usual schedule.

Maybe Anderson took on the 9 PM hour for a couple of reasons: that he seemed to admire Larry King a lot and Piers would be leading into 360 and it would be good practice for him in his new program.
