I couldn't get into 360 at all last nite, probably because I'm not feeling well. Thanks for the re-cap, ATA.

Wherever AC was, either the lighting was exceptionally poor or he wasn't feeling well.
Have to say I too was distracted by DWTS and a new season of RHWONJ.
But did catch AC's Ridiculist and this time it was right on target about Sir Trump.
Let's just say Trump wouldn't be making AC a contestant anytime soon on the Apprentice, and AC wouldn't ever manage his political campaign if he changes his mind...what a blessing, saved from his mindless ambitions.

Good mix of topics yesterday, as it is lately. I don't know who is responsibe for the change, but I like it.
AC usually looks better in the LA studio, but yesterday he did seem somewhat pale (well, even paler than his usual color...).
Great Ridiculist, Trump was just asking for it.. Sarah

I wonder if he will be in Los Angeles all week.

This won't get printed, but why does it matter where Anderson broadcasts from? It's not about how good he looks on camera, what suit he has on or how his make up looks ,IT'S ABOUT THE NEWS. And so you all won't have questions he is not taking over from The Donald and driving the pace car, he's in another stupid parade - got to get his face out there to promote his new show.

Perhaps AC is in LA has to do w/it being college graduation time - maybe he will be speaking at one of the many colleges/universities in the SoCal area? Just a guess. Or maybe he's interviewing someone for 60 Min. I agree w/Anon 5:20 - i5 doesn't really matter where he is as long as the show is good. My question is why isn't he up on the roof - he loves it up there! Perhaps the rain we have in NorCal has made it's way down south?
