After the Thanksgiving Holiday, we will be changing the format of the talk show post to be more in line with the AC360 post – one picture and a list of topics/guests. I volunteered to take on blogging the talk show for ATA when it started due to other team member’s time constraints, work schedules and the time slots in certain markets. It was our hope that a reader or two would come forward to join the ATA Team and help with blogging the talk show on a regular basis. Unfortunately, that has not happened. With work, the holidays approaching and my other blog responsibilities, I cannot continue to devote the amount of time to the talk show post that I have been, on a daily basis. The talk show web site has recently started posting some full episodes and continues to post clips from each show. The new format will give our readers an overview and a landing for comments along with a link to the 'Anderson' website. If there is a certain segment that catches my interest and I think readers would be interested, I will clip it, like we do with certain AC360 interviews. I am also willing to accept reader requests for a particular segment/guest interview and post it in a special “Reader Request” post within a day or two. I would ask that requests be from readers who identify themselves other than commenting as "anonymous." You may leave reader requests (reasonable please) in the comment section and we will do our best to accommodate the requests we receive. If interest in the talk show increases and readers step forward to help on a consistent basis, we are willing to re-evaluate, but until that happens, we will be moving to the abbreviated post format.

It is obvious from the above audio clip, that the audience and the viewers WANT Anderson to talk about serious topics, they expect HIM to talk about SERIOUS TOPICS, the economy and OWS.
That should tell HIM that people identify HIM WITH SERIOUS NEWS.
This is not going to change, and he should realize that just because he's in transition, his audience doesn't fully buy it!!

Today's 'Anderson' was OK. I did like the interview with Melissa McCarthy, she was interesting and funny. You could tell Anderson really enjoyed having her on. The soap carving of Anderson was really creepy looking.

I can't believe the woman who got hit with the turkey pretty much forgave the kid who threw the turkey through her car window. More power to her for being able to forgive.

I only watched the Melissa McCarthy interview because I really like her, but gosh, Anderson really needs to loosen up and enjoy his guests. It seemed like he was so focused on what he was going to ask her next, he wasn't really listening to her responses. I did enjoy her and it was a nice touch to have her high school teacher there.

I know this is from awhile ago, but could you post the interview on the "Germ Investigation" show where they were talking about germs in fast-food restaurant play areas? It's not on the Anderson website.
