Go for it, people...

Blog Alert: Anderson Cooper is scheduled to co-host "Live with Regis and Kelly"
on Tuesday August 5. Guests include Luke Wilson and Blake Lively.



I'm not sure there's even a point in recapping the show tonight... the wetsuit video is now online.

And if you can't see it on their site for some reason, here's a smaller version:


(But I may be back after the show...!)

Okay, in the 360 spirit of giving the audience what they want, just a bullet-point re-cap tonight:
  • Widening the Gap -- Obama/McCain talking points. Sanjay talks about McCain's latest skin biopsy, Dana Bash discusses how the announcement was mishandled. David Gergen, Dee Dee Myers, and Ed Rollins discuss. Raise your hand if you were surprised that we never did get back to the point Gergen was trying to make.
  • Candy Crowley talked about Obama's economic "forum" today.
  • Same panel discussed McCain's attacks on Obama. Who is running the McCain "straight talk" anyway? Well, maybe he'll listen to Ben Stein and hire Karl Rove. Some people would rather shred a Constitution than lose an election.
  • Joe Johns talked about lobbyists and the reality of their need in DC.
  • Peter Bergen talked about the new trend of female suicide bombers in Iraq. (I'll include the clip of our favorite professor on ATC Saturday.)
  • Drew Griffin updated the TSA watchlist story. Remember that shredded Constitution I mentioned earlier. Mm-hmm. Guilty until proven innocent...
The Shot was Anderson's Excellent Shark Adventure, but only a bit of it. Still... I know you want framegrabs, right? Click for full-size...



(Gotta say, Neil Hallsworth looks a bit less impressed by it all than Anderson!)

Mmmm....very nice.......

that video KINDA/SORTA makes up for the fact he is gone,but I miss him-it's going to be a long week,I feel.

Anonymous said...

That's nice and all, but I want a full body shot of that wetsuit. LOL!

Anonymous said...

Oh,I agree with anonymous 7:28 pm....

I want the FULL shot as well,darn it.
Guess we will have to wait for the PIP program for that!(Crosses fingers)


Better get out the naughty chairs,bleachers,etc-it may be getting a bit crowded soon!

Anonymous said...

Ahhhhhhh!! Sharks!!!

I dunno...that looked pretty scary to me...

cactuskid said...

Anderson looks very excited in the video, but those Great White's scare the bahookas out of me! They are so ferocious looking!

@ anon. 7:28: I want a full body shot as well, but I bet we will just get an above the waist shot. LOL!

Maureen said...

I agree with you anon. 728pm. I would of LOVED to see Anderson's total wetsuit 'package'. I'll take my seat on the naughty bleachers,now.

Anonymous said...

Omg!! That was super quick. Not complaining. I want to go on the record as saying I too wanted the whole wetsuit works.

I'm glad AC looks happy doing what he's doing but something tells me we aren't going to see him in a full body shot. So there is no need for a naughty chair. Unless we see more of him and less of the sharks, this is a plain marketing tool for PIP II.

Anonymous said...

What a great way to start shark week. First reports of Ryan Seacrest being bitten by a shark and now this.

Didn't those fins look tasty?

Anonymous said...

I started laughing when I got to the site. I had a feeling you will be featuring Anderson in his scuba outfit. But I started laughing louder when I scrolled down to see all the naughty chairs. LOL! Like everyone here, I was also wishing they'd show him in a full body shot. By the way thanks for posting the clip, Anderson seemed to have enjoyed the sharks.

Anonymous said...

Count me in for the "total wetsuit package". I would like one of the front row seats, please.

Anonymous said...

Adding my voice to the chorus:
We Need a Full Body Shot!

And we need it while Anderson's wearing something skimpier and clingier, not the thick bodysuit he was wearing in the shot.

Maybe something Brazilian... those guys know how to show some skin.

ACAnderFan said...

I wasn't impressed with the whole shark video or the wetsuit, but since everyone else is in the naughty chair I'll go too.

Anonymous said...

Jaanza. I was thinking of Anderson wearing a small electric blue g-string, myself. Now that would be NICE!

Kristien said...

Oh, what a beautiful smile!---->

Hmm, a full body shot of him in that wetsuit...that thought just made my day, lol.

Love, love, love the naughty chairs BA! Wouldn't it be great if we could all watch the show together sitting on them?

Thanks Cyn!

Anonymous said...

There wasn't much of him to see, basically the shoulders up.

I never even had 360 on. I like Randi, I don't dislike Campbell, she is ok, but after getting John King on Friday night - forget it. I

Anderson sure looks like he is having fun. Although I am glad he is doing this trip, he has also be promising us some serious trips like Iraq and Afghanistan all year. So far this year he has only taken two trips for work, enjoyable ones to Africa.

Anonymous said...

Anderson seems to have pretty thin hair. When he messed up his bangs and part on the top of his head (it was standing up), it seemed thin.

Anonymous said...

Awww,look at those smiles on his face,he is truly happy there!!

Sapphire said...

When I wrote in my post Friday night that Anderson was off scuba diving I had no idea how close I was.....so now I will fangurl alittle. OMG that was a surprise and totally hot and all I have to say is "thank goodness for ask, believe, recieve"

I love the bleechers. I love that you have me higher up because I am small and can see the show even better :P Campbell said there should be more tonight and now I have an awesome seat.

Seriously Sapphire now it was a good 360 last night and Randi got a cute new haircut

Quitty said...

Cyn, when you said frame-by-frame you weren't kidding. Those are great.

Thanks BA for reserving my seat!

pammiec said...

I agree with all of you, I want a full body shot too! Is he really going to be gone all week? I don't like Campbell Brown so I didn't watch last night. I'll watch anyone but her. As anonymous 7:28 pm said, it's going to be a long week.

Manoel Queiroz said...

Mrs.Jaansa..we brasilian boys sure know how to show some skin..but in the case of Mr.Cooper, well it would be better if he were in Brazil showing some skin...About the sharks..Since is saw "Jaws" me and sharks ever come along again, and Mr.Cooper was having a happy moment. I've never seen him so happy with a trip since i began to watch the show. Something says the Planet in Peril this year is worth of seeing!! And i'll get my naught chair in the crowd right now..Good Day and Good Luck!!

Em said...

Having a healthy respect for the ocean and a coming from the "Jaws generation" I never thought I'd say this but…if the look(s) on Anderson's face (especially that cute little smirk in the last frame) don't make you want to throw on a wetsuit and jump into the middle of a bunch of sharks, I don't know what will. Great pictures, it will be interesting to see the PIP. Sorry my friends but I think I will have to pass on this whole Anderson in a Speedo thing. The only people I have ever seen do a Speedo justice were Olympic swimmers and divers. The Olympics haven’t been the same without Greg Louganis and his cute little bod (although I will say Mario Lopez didn't look too bad when he played Greg in the movie!) Anyway, I have a pretty strong feeling that you will have keep watching Anderson in a Speedo in your dreams anyway. I just can’t see Mr. Anderson “I don’t like doing anything that brings attention to myself” Cooper ever stepping in front of a camera in a Speedo. I guess we will see if I am wrong when PIP comes out and if he’s wearing one, you can all throw electric blue Speedo’s at me!!

Cindy said...

I have to agree with Acanderfan...the video didn't impress me at all. I've seen this on Discovery and other channels and it was way better.

OK...I've looked very closely at the video stopping and starting it several times and looked at the pics. This is not scuba diving. No one has air tanks on their backs. They don't even have snorkels. This is just where you hold your breath and can come up when needed. That is why the cage is just right under the water. He must have had to take lessons to learn to control his breathing before entering the water and then learn to hold his breath for longer amounts of time. This is in no way scuba diving!

But he was too darn cute...all wet and all! To bad he didn't show us a full body view! Who are we kidding...that'll NEVER happen so we'll have to dream on about that one! LOL

Anonymous said...

WOW, I'm late to the party...so I can only echo: Full body shot of wet suit, please.

Not sure of the danger level and I'm glad Anderson Cooper enjoy it, but I have no interest in seeing a great white that close up...sharks are fear of mine ever since Jaws.

It was cute during the Shot when Randi Kaye (who looks really nice with a bob) reacted to Anderson's remarks about the dive not being scarey. She said that she should speak to Anderson when he gets back. Maybe she will send him to the naughty chair with the rest of us. LOL.

And, it seems that I have not properly introduced myself. So, Hello everyone. Been following AC since the Mole. Watched AC360 off and on over years, but never miss the New Year's show. Best

Anonymous said...

I would give my left arm to own that wetsuit that AC was just wearing. What a man he is.

Anonymous said...

It is always nice to see your posts, Manoel. So glad you join us!

ACAnderFan said...

@anonymous 3:50am, it did look like his hair was a little thin, but maybe it was just the way he was combing it with his fingers.

ACAnderFan said...

If Anderson wears a speedo I am going to need the naughty chair for the rest of my life...LOL!!!

Anonymous said...

Great pix of the scuba stuff. I wish they would show the entire segment soon. I wonder if AC had any concerns from his doctor about scuba because of his asthma. I know that I have asthma and my doc says that scuba is something that could be dangerous to my health. Take care AC!

Kristien said...

@Em: You're right (I think) about us never seeing Anderson in Speedo's, certainly not for PIP and hopefully not with sharks around, lol.

@Sapphire: the show was good and I agree about Randi's haircut, it suits her very well.

Anonymous said...

Although it was nice to see Anderson happy and having a good time, the segment was so short we really didn't get much info out of it (yeah, like we were really listening to what he actually to say!).

And the PIP2 special is only 2 hours this year, abbreviated from last year.

I guess he is there for the week, or at least not in New York, so I have the week off of watching 360 unless John King comes back.

Anonymous said...

anon@8:41 - I bet there would be HUGE bidding was for that wetsuit on eBay!! I know I'd bid on it!!

I hope all the readers in the LA/San Diego area are ok and no ill effects from todays earthquake. I guess we know what the breaking news will be on 360 tonight!! Let's hope that doesn't overshadow AC's PIP2 reports.

Phebe: do you know if anyone has the article from Sunday's USA Weekend that could be scanned for those us of who were unable to buy it?

Anonymous said...

What we want:
A five-minute video, full body shots and close-ups, of Anderson in an electric blue Speedo on the beach at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

What we'll get:
A brief head-and-shoulders shot of Anderson in a thick dark bodysuit or already in the water up to his neck.

Jaanza

Phebe said...

Ladies and gentlemen, Please remember we are here because we are news junkies and we admire Anderson Cooper for his journalistic abilities! I'm ashamed at all the talk of blue Speedos and full body shots. What has gotten in to all of you? ;)

I am really looking forward to Anderson's Regis and Kelly appearance next Tuesday. I'm sure Kelly will have a bit of fun teasing AC about the sharks and we'll get to hear some great stories of his adventure. Thanks to Doraemon for the tip.

@anonymous 2:09, The article in USA weekend isn't for two more weeks. We will be posting it for those who don't have access.

Maureen said...

sorry Phebe for all the perverted thinking. I guess all the waiting and thinking of anderson in a wetsuit made us all go insane. Well, atleast for me. oh, I would of loved to be that wetsuit! lol. sorry, again. I just had to get that out.

Anonymous said...

Phebe, I loved the little chairs but I too was not impressed with what I saw. Maybe there will be more to night.
Hate to start this, but where was Erica yesterday?
And having watched the show, Campbell did seem a bit over-whelmed for some reason.

Anonymous said...

Campbell leaves me absolutely not remotely interested in watching 360. John King is the man. He is interesting, and personable.Why, after the John King love, we had Campbell boggles the mind!

Anonymous said...

Please someone tell me what people see in Greta? Her ratings are up again for the 75 consecutive month.
She's not a beauty, she only delves in crime, and isn't that politically savvy. AC better start wearing that wetsuit on air.

Anonymous said...

I wanted not just the full body suit shot, but him getting into it, hopely without a shirt. I was setting in the naughty chair a long time ago. I was in the naughty chair when Anderson annouce that what he been doing past couple Fridays. And he said he was having scuba lession and I was gone, and waiting for everyone else to join me.

I hope there more in the planet in peril documentary.
Thank for all the screancaps. You really love us to do that for us. Then set the naughtly bleachers up for us.

@anonymous 2:09PM
Those of us who live in Southern California are hoping today's frightening earthquake will be featured on AC360. It's a big story to us!

Manoel Queiroz said...

I Wish To Thank Mrs.Anonymous (7/29/08 8:50 AM). I Very Happy, Really Happy to be a part of this blog,i'm sure that i'll have some unforgettable moments here!!! About Mr.Cooper in a Speedo like Mrs.Jaansa suggested, when he comes to Rio de Janeiro don't worry i'll be the first person in line in the beach to takes photos with him and if it's possible i'll share with everyone here in the blog..as a token of my apreciation for everyone here.But the Speedo Moment in Copacabana Beach..like we say here in Brazil "The Good of Dreams is we don't have to pay for it", Until Mr.Cooper don't come to my country we'll be happy with wetsuits and Sharks (Who makes me really scared)!! PS: Let's send tons of e-mails asking John King for Sub of Anderson Cooper, i don't know why Campbell Brown..make me sleep while she is talking...Good Night and Good Luck for all my blog buddies around here

Manoel Queiroz said...

And I Hope The Earthquake that happenened this afternoon in L.Angeles doesn't make anyone hurt or destroyed anything!!

Anonymous said...

anon 4:28 PM: Greta's ratings have always been higher than Anderson's. For whatever the reason, more people watch her than Anderson, looks isn't everything.

Anonymous said...

I'm not watching 360 again tonight. What happened to John King?

Anonymous said...

John King, where are you? Save us from you- know who.

Anonymous said...

The question isn't what happened to John King, it's what happened to Erica for second night in a row?
She's been given less and less air time and that is not a good sign in the news biz.
