Anderson Cooper: Daytime Talk Show In The Works!

Anderson Cooper is launching a syndicated daytime talk show!

According to THR, CNN’s AC360 host, 43, won’t have a hard-news focus for his show but will still cover social issues and news stories, along with celebrities and pop culture.

The daytime talk show will also have segments including “hidden-camera experiments and town-hall meetings, with a focus aimed at appealing to female viewers.”

Warner Bros. hopes to launch the show next fall and the deal, which would require Anderson to continue hosting his CNN program, may close by the end of this week.

WOULD YOU tune in too?? We’d love to see Silver Fox on daytime TV!

    JoshP Says:

    He has no personality and his show is in last place why would anyone want to invest more time or money in him?

    Teuta Says:

    Why is he treated like a celebrity? Outside the U.S., no one has ever heard of him.

    Freaking awesome. HE WILL BE TAKING THE OPRAH TIME SLOT you watch. You read it hear on JJ first. Now tihs is someone who has done so many things and what a life and knows so many people and has known and seen so much tragedy, and is so on the ball with up to the minute current events it will be a breath of fresh air. Plus he’s a Vanderbilt. Imagine the guests he can pull just on his name alone. Give me him over Nate Berkus anyday.

    Are you kidding? That’s like saying no one knows who Christiane Amanpour is around the world. He’s a journalist.

    Anderson tried the talk show bit on CNN and it was a total failure. Now why does he think he can do it anyway? I watched the Live 360 and it was the most boring thing ever. It was the same format they are saying this new one will be like.

    And everyone has to really see that this means 360 is over. He won’t be doing both shows. How can he? One in the day and one at night every day and night, he’d be totally exhausted after a few weeks. His contract with CNN is up mid 2011, his rating are horrible and getting worse. To me that means he is done with 360 and moving on. They are just saying he is doing both shows on this article because he hasn’t announced he is leaving CNN yet.

    Hmmm daytime? He’s too much of a newsman for me to see him doing the fluff pieces that’s required when you do a daytime show. I think it’s a good idea though.

    The Oprah time slot is the most expensive and coveted “real estate” on television. He would be perfect but I don’t seem him doing those nonsense cooking, fashion, celebrity, giveaway prize shows that Oprah has done.

    Sam Says:

    I would watch it! It sounds like it would be good. Some news segments mixed with pop culture. He’s really funny too so I could see this doing well.

    AC is more at home flying all over the planet reporting on the political upheavels and horrors of the world. He’s been doing that since his 20′s

    How is he gonna change to appease the houswewives at home who want the latest cupcake recipe that makes you lose 5 pounds?

    43? He looks double his age.

    Ms Bar Jolie Gaga Says:

    The Silver Fox indeed! I will be watching! Oprah replacement. Oh tough one. Gayle maybe? But she will probably go to Own. They will have to find a new star for that slot.

    Christina Says:

    Anderson Cooper NEEDS his own television show; there should be more people like the silver fox himself on daytime television. He will probably end up taking all Oprah’s viewers, who doesn’t love the dreamy Cooper?
