Anderson Cooper's daytime endeavors have paid off.
Fox stations have renewed the hourlong talk show Anderson for a second season, The Hollywood Reporter reports. In addition, it will move from WPIX in New York to WNYW, considered an upgrade because its programming is a better fit for the show's content.
"This is a terrific testament to these strong stations who, like us, see Anderson as the next early-fringe syndication franchise," said Ken Werner, president of Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, on Wednesday. "Since its launch, the series has continued to grow and find its voice in a very competitive and fragmented landscape," added Werner. "We have great faith in Anderson and with strong station partners, we believe we are well on the way to creating a valuable news lead-in."
Cooper, added, "I am enjoying the daytime show tremendously and am looking forward to what lies ahead."
With a 1.4 rating in a recent week, numbers have been respectable, if not stellar, for Anderson.
