360 Webcast: Finances, Zagnuts, and bad birthday questions?

David M. Reisner
AC360 Digital Producer

Ok so now we're cookin'! Thanks for watching the '360 Webcast' last night! The viewers are growing more and more each day. If you watched our online show last night you now know what all the fun is about.

We had our first repeat customer: Suze Orman. She came back to help us make sense of the lastest moves on Wall street. A day when the market ended UP 400 points doesn't mean we are out of the woods yet... and we asked Suze some extra questions about the market and your money during the break.

We talked birthdays too.... If you watched the show last night, Anderson talked about how embarassed he was for something he asked erica during the '360 Webcast.' I think it was an honest mistake, but hey, I'm not going to tell you what happened – its best you just see for yourself!

For those of you who didn't catch it – be sure to watch tonight – during commercial breaks!
all you have to do is click here – and the rest is magic!

    Hey Anderson:
    Love your news, your the best but have an idea for your blog site name coming to you from Wichita, Kansas
    You and Erika were discussing the other nite what to call it, hope it rings a bell " Anderson's 180 on the 360

    Zagnuts are awesome ! Hard to find though. Maybe now that we Zagnut lovers have Erica and Anderson on board they (the Zagnuts of course) will be seen all across America 🙂

    Thanks for posting this – it was fun to watch. Anderson is a good sport even when he gets himself in mock trouble by saying something in a way that comes out wrong – it was a good laugh with him.

    And what is Erica anyway, 32 or 33 or so? It would be more sensational if she were 41 or 51. But she's not.

    Awhhh... I didn't see it but that means Miss Erica is a September baby!

    How about calling the webcast 'What Else is Cookin'?

    OK, so I don't see what AC was apologizing for. I guess I'm just slow...or something–I dunno. Anyway, it's fun when Anderson gets his buttons pushed, or at least when he PRETENDS that his buttons are being pushed. We get to see facial experssions that you don't get to see everyday from an anchor. Hmmm, I guess reporting is a step away from acting, or something like that.

    Sorry about your blunder Anderson.
    To Erica: Lie about your age, we "girls" all do.
    You guys are great! Now that was fun!

    That is funny – Anderson should be careful what he says!

    Also is there a way to put the webcast online after AC360, so that people who missed it or CNN.com/live is blocked in their country can still watch the webcast?

    How about calling it 'AC360: Extras'

    After Anderson said that to her and then stated that he did not remember his 30th birthday, I thought about my 30th and I'll be darned, I do not remember mine and I'm only 38. I wish I could say it is because I went out and partied, but that is not the case, sadly.

    It was funny, but I did not think insulting to Erica. She is a good sport and can dish it out just fine.

    Our family loves the Webcast.

    Too funny! I don't remember what I did for my last birthday either but I was pregnant too when I hit the big 30!
    A little water under the bridge since then. Don't worry Anderson, forgetting can be a blessing in diguise! 😉

    So this is what I've been missing?

    Since the night is still young when 360 is broadcast here on the West Coast (7 PM), I'm usually doing other things besides watching the show (cooking, paying bills, going out with friends, etc.). So I normally don't live-blog or watch the webcam or webcast because I'm so busy doing othing things (I live-blogged when it first started, but not anymore). So it's nice to see this now, after-the-fact, in this website. Thanks for the laugh.

    I thought AC would have said Erica had not yet seen 30.... isn't there something about being 29 that is eternal? like always being 29...?

    I didn't see anything wrong with the question of 'do you remember your 30th birthday' if Erica said it was ok then it was. Not like anything was revealed that shouldn't be, isn't Ericas age public knowledge with Wiki and all? She's a young'un and she at least remembers hers, some of us over 40s including myself on the other hand, good luck lol
    Zagnuts=coconutty candy delicious!

    By the way, I think that the webcast should be called: “Behind the Curtain”.

    I like that. Maybe they can also do some magic tricks.

    I saw the birthday section of the live webcast and really enjoyed it. 🙂

    So Anderson was going to bring coconut cupcakes, forgot to do it, and used the "old timers" excuse to bail himself out? Ha Ha!! Well, I really should'nt be laughing because I have used that excuse before and I am only a few months older than Erica.

    Are Zagnuts really "all that"? I don't have much of a sweet tooth. but I am willing to try new candy.

    I saw the webcast last night and thought the reaction to Anderson's question was hilarious. Mentioning it on air without revealing what happened was a genius way to get people to want to check it out. You should continue to refer to the webcast with inside jokes.
