Anderson Cooper’s daytime talk show to end

This is such a pity because I thought a post-coming out Anderson Cooper was so much more relaxed and appealing this season.

But The Anderson Cooper Show will end after the current season, it’s second, Warner Bros. Television has just announced.


I liked the co-host format they have this season, the live element and all the rest.

Anderson says in a statement: “I am very proud of the work that our terrific staff has put into launching and sustaining our show for two seasons,” he said. “I am also grateful to Telepictures for giving me the opportunity, and indebted to viewers, who have responded so positively. I look forward to doing more great shows this season, and though I’m sorry we won’t be continuing, I have truly enjoyed it.”

I’m not sure why they would make this announcement now though, seems kind of early if they are staying on through the summer.

Anderson is plenty busy though with his nightly CNN show and his job as a correspondent for 60 Minutes.

3 Remarks

  1. The worst thing about this is that Anderson was perfect as a co-host with Kelly Ripa. They had great chemistry. Unfortunately, now Michael Strahan is co-hosting with Kelly, so Anderson can’t take that job.

  2. Why does the gay or gay-friendly talk shows never make it past two seasons (exception: Ellen); Anderson Live, The Bonnie Hunt Show, The Nate Berkus Show, The Rosie Show on OWN… It is just like series that you just get into, and they get cancelled after season 1 or 2. “V”: Unanswered plot; “Terra Nova”: Unanswered plot; “GCB”: left us high and dry; “The Event”: lefut us hanging; “Trauma” a terrific show with a gay character that is a hero; Yet the Steve Wilko show is into it’s what, 5th season? Come on, network TV! If you have a concern about a show, then rap it up and let us know it is a “Limited Series”. Why can’t cable pick up some of these wonderful talk or drama series.
    I can guess “Revolution” is going to be cancelled because it is too ‘apocolyptic’ and therefore, expensive to produce.
    Greg, you have access to the Hollywood world, can you maybe press the point of suggestion to have a “Limited-run series” that wraps up series that fans get hooked on?
    And if you have connections at CBS/Showtime, can you please tell them that Florida does NOT have front license plates on our vehicles. Case in point CSI: Miami (I know it is cancelled) and Dexter. Why don’t they do better research, I mean please, they HAD to have visited the state and the city of Miami. OPEN thier eyes, Greg. CSI: Miami even had an episode where the “imprint of the front license plate” proved who the killer was. Rediculous!
    Love your blog and website. I look forward to it everyday at 5:00 p.m.
    Keep up the good work, Greg!

  3. It was just a weak unimaginative mess!
