My station cut away to Breaking News and by the time I turned away frm CNN Anderson was off.

Anderson's interview with Judi Dench was horrible. I don't know how to describe it but it was almost like he was talking down to her, not treating her as an equal. I don't know how to describe it but I did not like the way he was talking to her. It almost seemed like he thought she was dumb because she's older. It wasn't one of his better interviews.

I did like the segment about people being rude. It was interesting.

@Anon 6:38 - was there a particular segment you were interested in or the whole show? I'm wiling to add videos to the post if people are interested. I understand that breaking news cut in to 'Anderson' in several markets.

I find it interesting that Anderson is so opposed to rudeness, yet I have watched him be rude to guests he was interviewing. He talks over him, interrupts constantly and doesn't even let them finish a sentence. Very disconcerting to me at least.

It is interesting that you bring up the Judi Dench interview.
I did not see it because I make it a habit of NOT watching Anderson.
However, in a few instances, during some interviews, one in which he was speaking to Rep Maloney, he used the phrase "old people."
He has done this before.
A person of his background I'm quite certain, knows not or should know, to use this condescending phrase.
Baby Boomers should be referred to as Seniors and by the way, Mr.Cooper, you're the one with the grey head, and you're not so young yourself.
