The news about the three missing-now-found women in Ohio was certainly breaking news but after 20 minutes I lost interest. I realize it's brand *new* news and other than thinking 'great, it's a happy news story and really wonderful for the families', however after a while it started to feel repetitive.

I really liked the segment on the Boston bombing suspects and the investigation. Joe Johns was very good and Anderson's interview with funeral director Stefan answered a lot of the questions I've been wondering.

Roughly 40 minutes into 360 at 8 there was a commercial for tonight's episode of 'Dancing With the Stars'. A dramatic exciting new episode airing tonight at 8, 7 central... exactly opposite 360. I can understand CNN accepting advertising for shows on other networks but isn't it dumb to broadcast those commercials for shows opposite the CNN show viewers are currently watching?

Thanks for the extra photos of Anderson, Ben and Molly. Two handsome guys but my attention was riveted on Molly, such a good doggie and looks so happy.

The big top story was surprising but to be honest, it didn't really interest me--I guess if you're in Ohio and have followed that story for years it's major news, but for me, it's just a local story but I'm glad the ordeal is over for the women involved and the perpetrator has been arrested.

It was kind of a letdown to watch the 10 pm edition of 360--I miss the panel format but I guess that's over and done with even though it did a lot better than HuffPo/Deadline would have us believe.

Thanks for posting the pics of AC, Ben and Molly--quite a gorgeous family they are.

I agree that there was maybe a bit too much of the missing and found women. I zoned out a bit after half an hour or so.
Loved the interview with the grumpy funeral director. It was insighful and also delightfully authentic.

Anderson and Ben are such a handsome couple and Molly is adorable.

@Aries: Don't give up on the panel show yet. I don't think it was meant to be continued right away regardless of the ratings, which were good. :) I'm sure they will look at the results of the various experiments and then decide which one will become regular.

Where is the Town Hall mtg Friday - in Cleveland? If so, where and what time; are tickets needed to get in? We would like to attend.
