Anderson Cooper anchored AC360 from the NYC studio.  The program began with reports on Republicans behaving badly and ended with video of Anderson and Anthony Bourdain talking Budapest at Anderson's firehouse home:

AC360 had a pretty good mix of reports for a Friday night broadcast, it actually held my interest for most of the hour.

I missed part of Friday's show but here's what I did see -
The lead story was about the sister of Dennis Hastert's victim from long ago. She is speaking out and now there are two other known victims. Anderson talked to Jeff Zeleny for details and then Jeffrey Toobin and Lynn Sweet analyzed.
The other story in the first segment was an update on Aaron Schock's spending scandal, the FBI raid on his former office and the subpoenas on some of his former staffers. Chris Kaergard reported.

A drug company has invented Viagra for women. Elizabeth Cohen reported and then Anderson talked to some expert. I didn't get the expert's name because I checked out hayes. While some women may appreciate this new drug, I'm just not interested.

The "Duggar Sex Abuse Scandal" got a segment. I know a few people think the whole topic is kind of tabloidy but I enjoy hearing about condescending holier-than-thou hypocrites getting into trouble. The topic here was covering the discrepancies in Jill & Jessa Duggar's interview with Megan Kelly. Jean Cesarez had the report and then Anderson talked to Brian Stelter. Lots of angles were discussed including the news that Huckabee's website no longer has the pro-Duggar statement on it.

Gary Tuchman did the report on the murder of Chandra Levy and this is where I made two mistakes. First, I answered the phone and second I believed the caller when she said the survey would take just three minutes. I missed what happened next on 360 but did catch a glimpse later of another Anthony Bourdain promo. Are these going to be on every Friday show?

Is Anderson working this coming week? It seems to have been a while since his last vacation.
