I didn't like today's 'Anderson' at all. It wasn't interesting and it was just weird.

While it was a good show in regards to Terence keeping his mouth shut, today's talk show was an example of all that's wrong with the show production. The "Freakshow" people were given two segments to promote their AMC show that is aimed as a pretty specific audience that doesn't include me. I watched about a minute of it and FF through the rest. Judith Light is a talented actress that has been involved in Broadway charities for years doing wonderful work and she was given one short segment and had to talk a mile a minute while Anderson seemed to be watching the clock, for her short segment. I agree that eye health is important, but it was obvious that segment was a late add and again, not given enough time. I don't like when television shows direct you to their website for more information. If you don't think it's worthy of your show, then it's not worthy of my time to visit your website.

If I had been producing today's show - the "Freakshow" people wouldn't have made the cut - the time would have been split between Judith Light and the eye health guy. If the "Freakshow" people had to be on - they would have been given one segment and either Judith Light or the eye health guy would have been moved to another day.

It seems like the weird reality show people, the hidden camera investigations and the true crime people are always given two segments, while the celebrities are given a short segment. Perhaps if the non-celebrity topic were interesting or informative and not something that seems repetitive, it would be okay, but to me the producers seem to have the segment mix all wrong.

While I will miss the First 15 when the talk show goes away - the rest of it, not much at all.

Okay what is with the sunglasses? LOL I take it has something to do with eye health.

Thank you

I agree with Jenn's points, there are some celebs I'm interested in hearing more from, like Rashida Jones the other day and Allison Williams of Girls, but the segments are too short. And enough with the hidden camera investigations--they are not interesting and just seem like an easy to throw together segment because they don't care any longer. I love the First 15, especially when the show is actually live and new and they're talking about current events, but if it's just a bunch of YouTube videos, then it's not so great--but of course, it doesn't really matter now....

The First 15 were more serious than usual with a bit of fun mixed into, which was appropriate since they addressed the Dorner case and the upcoming snow storm.

Jenn, that audience would have included me then because I LOVED the freakshow segment and also, I need one of those undead teddy bears! :D I am such a sucker for this kind of grotesque, burlesque, creepy stuff! And I loved the aesthetics of the Freak Show.

Toni and Anderson looked really adorable in those spirit hoods.
