Every day might be New Year's Eve pretty soon at CNN. Deadline reports that Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin, who co-host the network's New Year's Eve coverage every year, filmed a...
The current second season of Anderson Cooper's daytime talk show Anderson Live will be its last. The show has been canceled after two seasons and will end next summer, according to The New York Times. A Warner Brothers executive told the paper the studio had declined to renew the series for a third season due to disappointing ratings.
A lot of new big names have moved into the daytime neighborhood this fall, but viewers are choosing to spend more time with a familiar friend. The Ellen DeGeneres Show is off to its best start in its 10-year history, ranking as the No. 1 syndicated talk program among the advertiser-favored audience of women ages 25-54 through the first two weeks of the TV season. Its overall average of 3.3 million viewers is up 6 percent from a year ago, putting it behind Dr. Phil (3.8 million) and Live With Kelly and Michael (3.4 million).When Oprah Winfrey ended her program in 2011, insiders in the syndication business wondered where her viewers would go. No program last year took immediate advantage of the upheaval, but daytime habits change glacially. "All the research indicated that after Oprah left there was a large opportunity for Ellen, and that may be playing itself out," says Ken Werner, president of Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, which syndicates Ellen.
Anderson Cooper has released the initial lineup of guest co-hosts who will be joining him on his daytime talk show in the fall. Actress Kristin Chenoweth will be the first person to play sidekick to the CNN anchor when she appears on Anderson Live on Sept. 10, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Extreme Makeover: Anderson Cooper edition. The CNN anchor's daytime talk show is getting revamped for its sophomore season this fall, including a name change and the addition of guest co-hosts, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
