Anderson Cooper: Daytime Talk Show Confirmed!

Anderson Cooper: Daytime Talk Show Confirmed!

Anderson Cooper will host a new, one-hour daily daytime talk show starting Fall 2011.

“Over the course of the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of daytime programs,” the 43-year-old Silver Fox shared. ” It’s fun and interesting to work in daytime television. The format is unique and you can really go in-depth on a wide range of fascinating and compelling stories. With this new program I hope to relay important information and relate to people and the audience in a completely different way. It’s an exciting opportunity to show another side of myself and create something worthwhile and special in daytime.”

Anderson added, “I remain as committed as ever to my program on CNN, and will be with CNN for years to come.”

Congrats, Coop. We can’t wait to check out your new show! (The show will social issues, trends and events, pop culture and celebrity, human interest stories and populist news.)

WHO DO YOU THINK should be Anderson’s first guest? Our vote is Ben Maisani!

Why is he treated like a celebrity? Outside the U.S., no one has ever heard of him. 43? He looks ancient! Seriously, who is this guy?!

Maybe i will watch him.

# 3

I love this man’s intelligence and courage. He is amazing. CONGRATS!

# 4

@Lorraine: Seriously, he is a really good reporter on CNN.

And seriously, don’t know where you’re from, but I’m sure your country has local celebs that Americans have never heard of either.

You must be seriously inept. Go find a clue pleas.e Thx.

# 5

Andrew Marr
Trevor McDonald
Adam Boulton
Jon Snow

I wish he’d take over for Regis on Live with Regis and Kelly. He and KElly work so well together and Regis needs to retired already.

# 7

@Lorraine: I live in Brazil and I know Anderson very well. I watch AC 360 every night. His show is broadcasted to many countries through CNN International.

# 8

@Lorraine: Sorry Lorraine i know who Anderson Cooper is……..he is very smart funny and sexy…….He has a news show on CNN AC360 its worth watching…

# 9

i want to penetrate him analy

Enough with daytime talk shows already. They’ve become the new daytime soaps. no one is watching. how ’bout filling daytime TV with some decent programming. Look at European TV for some ideas, since it seems America has run out of them. Everyone is getting a talks show. Big whoop!

Soap operas have always been popular and have loyal else have they lasted so long.

CBS daytime abandoning…Guiding Light and AsTheWorldTurns was awful! It put alot of actors, techs out of work.
I watched thorughout my college years and breaks in grad school as an outlet. ..everyone of friends who are productive in life …and those who are successful stay at Mom’s were loyal watchers fell betrayed.

I’d much rather WATCH actors in a soap than people gabbing and injecting their opinions…even though I love Coop. I’d watch his show i just feel that there is room for everyone…why not.

Soaps are better than tired/weak scripted “reality shows” where non-actors pretend they’re not acting…and really can;t anyway..

sorry to burst your childish little bubble but anderson is known outside of the united states and he’s very popular. have you got that little girl?

another idiot whose bubble this american has to burst;
andrew marr; He edited The Independent for two years until May 1998, was political editor of BBC News from 2000 until 2005. started hosting a so so political programme Sunday AM, now called The Andrew Marr Show, on Sunday mornings on BBC One from September 2005 also hosts the BBC Radio 4 programme Start the Week. he’s also the fool who asked brown if he uses drugs to get through the day.
Trevor McDonald Trinidadian-born British newsreader and journalist. He is a news presenter with ITN, notable for having been the first black. and a hell of lot smarter than andrew marr will ever be

to continue bursting your little bubble; by the way, has marr publicly given his support to labour yet?.
adam boulton -is political editor of the British television channel Sky News, has been since 1989. thinks he’s god gift to the world. also hosts the Sunday Live with Adam Boulton from 10am to 12pm Sunday mornings on the sky news website. he also has blog on the Sky News website. for some reason The Times, Sunday Times, Guardian, Spectator, New Statesman and Independent publish the idiot’s articles. the best part was watching this paragon of virtue shouting at campbell on may 10 of this year. poor baby was upset by what was said.

finally, jon snow. gotta love this guy. at least he has more intelligence than boulton and marr combined and he’s more fun. although when he started jumping up and down about the secrecy surrounding your prince harry’s being in Afghanistan i did have to wonder there a bit about snow. . the man works for ITN as a presenter. He does the Channel 4 News. some of those ties and socks he wears are a true riot. sometimes i think the man is color blind. He tweets via @jonsnowc4. he was asked by MI5 in 1976 to spy for them and he turned them down

so , now that you know that some americans know who those 4 men are; neither one of them comes even close to anderson cooper. as i said before, i’m so happy i burst your little bubble

he’s gay enough for a daytime talk show!

His ratings on CNN are really bad. I think he is looking for an exit. How can he do a talk show if he is still in the closet? One out of every seven people is gay. He has lots of company.


What’s beunbg in the closet got to do with making a good show? Grow the F up!

now he can have two lousy shows.


You cannot “talk” to someone when you are a facade. IMHO

Anderson is an excellent journalist and I watch him every night on CNN. I am sure he will be very good on his new venture. He has intelligence which a lot of the above comments people apparently lack. Also he is from one of the most famous families the US has produced. Gloria Vanderbilt and I grew up together (sic) age wise.

Now the people here that just want to make noise, get a life. There is a lot to life other than trying to find fault with others.

THE AFTER PARTY @ 09/30/2010 at 4:23 pm




People are not finding fault with others. People chafe at the unfair advantage most people with money and success have had in the workplace. If people were not whispering “do you know who his mother is”
Andy would most definitely not be where he is today.
