So happy to see Anderson back on AC360! Tonite's 360 was really good. I liked Gary's piece about the animals at shelters in Colorado. Hopefully soon all the animals will be reunited with their families. The Shot was cute, also really liked The RidicuList.

It would be nice if Anderson spent more time promoting animal origanizations that cater to helping defenseless animals in puppy mills all across these United States.
While giving military dogs their due is a worthy cause, there are many animals, not only dogs, in need of someone to speak for them.
Anderson should use his podium for more reasons than just one "agenda."
We got it. He's gay and he's promoted gay rights on 360 till the 'cows come home.'
Now let's move forward and help every animal organization, like the American Humane Society, so they don't have to periodically "beg for money," during the disasters he reports from.

At Anon 11:24 - If you read the post - the interview Anderson did with the Sergeant and military dog was part of a broader story concerning legislation in Congress to ensure that military dogs aren't treated like equipment.

Anderson has done many stories on animals/animal shelters/those helping place animals. Why do you chose to only focus on one aspect he hasn't covered and conveniently forget about all the good he has done?

I was not expecting Anderson or even a new 360 on Thursday and didn't tune in until 35 minutes past the start.

Thanks for including the Shot, cute and goofy doggie.

The story on the Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes divorce and Scientology was a little too 'Entertainment Tonight'-esque for me. However, it was a new story and that's always appreciated.

The report on Michael Marin and his alleged suicide was well done.

The Ridiculist - Anderson veered from politicians caught swearing to news anchors (including himself) being caught unready after a commercial break. I felt like this Ridiculist could have been better if it was more focused.

@ Anon 11:24 PM - I have no doubt Anderson is an animal lover (remember Molly?) Maybe he gives to his local Humane Society as you and I do. An occasional report on 360 about animal welfare and the organizations that help homeless animals would be nice (there were recently two) but how much coverage do you need to believe Anderson has done enough?

Great to see Anderson back, I thought he might take a couple of days off, but he is kind of a workaholic.

Yes, he's back.
His announcement didn't stop traffic.
Love that dog's sad expression.
More stories like these are needed in order to defend animals because they cannot speak for themselves.
In many states dog fighting is still prevalent and there's no law in place to stop it.
Dogs are brutally beaten or used as bait and law enforcement turns a blind eye.
This must be stopped and the only way to stop the carnage is to report on it.
Maybe Anderson could do a little more on this particular issue.
It would make a perfect 60 Minutes piece.
