    Erica rocks!!! i must say that the humorous parts of the show are my favorite. after listening to such serious and often depressing news stories, it can be quite uplifting.

    Yes, the CNN magic continues! How appropriate that the halogram technology involves cameras filming you in all 360 degree angles! Perfect fit for the show! Can't wait to see what else you guys have up your sleeves!

    Come Erica, you could have wiggled your nose like Bewitched, or folded your arms and blinked like I Dream of Genie, or scrambled your molecules like Star Trek... in this age of technology you have to do more than that to impress us 😉

    And by the way, so we the audience see Will-I-AM but did Anderson actually see him in front of him in the studio for if yes, I didn't realize hologram technology was that advanced but if Anderson didn't see him but just we the TV viewing audience did, then it wasn't really a hologram but just video magic... hologram has to be physically visible in the real world and not just on a TV or graphic screen... so which is it?

    Yes I loved the hologram. But I will say computer graphics and special effects are neat stuff too.

    "Erica, That wasn't quite what I was thinking when they said see through clothing!"

    Now that's what I call multi-tasking! Or, is it multi-phasing?

    It's not really a hologram but empty space. Look it up........

    Erica & Anderson are simply goofy. In fact, both should make 'goofy' their new middle names.
