The first two segments of Tuesday's 360 were about the flooding in Texas with a few mentions of flooding in other states. One segment for this topic would have been enough. Besides reports by Rosa Flores and Gary Tuchman, there was a Q&A with a local police chief and two interviews with women from two different families who had lost someone due to the floods.

Pamela Brown gave an update on the murder of the Savopoulos family and housekeeper. This segment also included a Bulletin.

My favorite segment was on the Duggar family and the status of their show on TLC. Sponsors are running from them as fast as they can and negative comments are piling up on social media against TLC. Alexandra Fileds had the report and then Anderson talked to Dr. Drew Pinsky about it all. I wish the time with Dr. Drew had been longer; IMHO it was the most interesting part of the show.

Next up was a Randi Kaye rerport on a drowning death of a kayaker in the Hudson River which might have been a murder.

Last up was a promo for CNN's anniversary special "Breaking News" and a discussion with Wolf Blitzer. I didn't watch that show (DH wanted to watch something else) and will have to wait until I get to the better computer to watch ATA's clips.

I'm a little surprised Anderson didn't take the week off. In the past he's done that because of Memorial Day usually falls closer to his birthday. Maybe he'll take next week off instead, his birthday is next Wednesday, right?
