Anderson Debuts To Less-Than-Fantastic Ratings

| Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinuteAnderson CooperBusiness Blitz

anderson ratings not so fantastic

Stay positive, Anderson!

Despite landing some big name guests and covering some major stories, Anderson Cooper's new daytime talk show did NOT have a stellar debut.

Anderson averaged 1.1/3 in households, and he struggled with fighting against coverage of the U.S. Open men's tennis championship in markets such as New York and Boston.

Cooper's new talk show landed a 0.6/3 rating in women 25-54, which brought it to the #1 spot for its timeslot in markets including, Dallas, Washington, D.C., and Orlando.

Not TERRIBLE, but not GREAT either, given the fact that the Ellen season premiere average a 2.6 rating among households, and a 1.5 rating in women 25-54.

This wasn't the phenomenal opening that we were hoping Anderson would achieve, but who knows? Maybe he'll do better as the week progresses!

Did U tune in for the series premiere of Anderson? Do U think its ratings will go up???

    I wanted to record his show, but I can't see what flipping channel it's on. That might help.



  2. 2

    I tweeted to him that I wasn't interested in anything the Winehouses had to say. That was a very poor choice for a first show. No one cares about the one hit wonder who od'd.



  3. 3

    Damn I totally forgot about the time/date as I really wanted to watch Amy's Dad Mitch on his first show…..hopefully I can catch it on line.



  4. 4

    No, don't want to see his show. Really tired of him. I actually kind of enjoyed seeing him get punched out in Egypt, his hair all mushed up. He's too over-exposed anyway, put him back on the shelf or give him his walking papers already. He can't attract viewers nobody what he does. Maybe if he got punched out more people would tune in to see him ?



  5. 5

    I like him, but Im not sure if Ill waste time on the show again.



  6. 6

    He's actually quite dull, IMO.



  7. 7

    It wasn't even on in my area yesterday because they had on the US Open. I wanted to watch it because I wanted to see the Winehouse's.

    Keep your eye on the real war, while Obummer presents his American Job Act:
    $447 BILLION in new taxes on job creators as dictated by President Soup Kitchen!
    -
    The image on Drudge of a happy Obummer ladling out hash, in a NYC soup kitchen, to his economic victims on 9/11, is emblematic of the class warfare retribution he is preparing for all of us.
    -
    If BHO is reelected, that's the day the mask really drops and the music dies.
    -
    Obummer is a covert, singleminded ideologue keeping his eyes on the big prize and playing lowdown and dirty.
    -
    Thanks, Anderson for the propaganda to fool the People.

    Someone should tell him he is irrelevant.



  10. 10

    ok..seriously. wtf? The comments on here are from good to … just crazy. Look, Amy Winehouse, omg..DIDN'T HAVE ILLEGAL DRUGS IN HER SYSTEM!!! :O
    I think that wasn't a good idea for a first show because it's….so sad and depressing to think of. Maybe if this was next year? It would be a good season opener? I think time will tell exactly what he does.. Look, no one can really do it all. Oprah did that. Oprah was funny. Oprah was serious. She did it ALL. Ellen is the funny one. Dr. Oz is the informative one. Nate is the cute one! (haha) and Anderson is just trying to find his way.

    hes pathetic



  12. 12

    The airwaves are saturated with talk shows (…yes reality shows too), so you better have something more than just a pretty face to attract viewers. This is going to happen to more talk shows out there.

    anderson is very cool.i was looking forward to show,however once i started seeing commercials all over with kathy griffin being so attached to it..i was turned off & 2 of my co-workers said the same…we hate griffin.unless you were going for just a gay audience then i get it…but i won,t watch griffin in anything…



  14. 14

    It needs to be on Bravo, no matter how many time you click your princess heals together and wish it so, most of us are turned off by the gay agenda pushers like yourself.



  15. 15

    Anderson Cooper is so professional/classy. He's comfortable with who he is and doesn't feel the need to hide behind some stupid facade because he's gay. Why are you such and idiot Perez? Do you think no one would like the "real you" because you're gay? Is that why you try so hard to make a total fool of yourself? What ever happened to "Gay Pride"? You obviously aren't comfortable with who you really are. Isn't that why you made up this stupid character called "Perez Hilton"? To take the blame for the stupid things you do/say to get attention. What a pathetic way to get noticed/make people like you. You really haven't come out of the closet yet. You're hiding behind someone you made up, Perez Hilton. Who is Perez Hilton and will he please come out of the closet?



  16. 16

    Re: bohonk – Exactly. I don't know what channel it's on, and I don't know what time it airs.



  17. 17

    "Perez" is your alter ego. You say ignorant/stupid things under your alter ego's name. Don't you see that you have a problem? Have you ever really looked at some of the comments you put on some of the pictures you post on your site? Do you're parents read your site? Are you proud showing it to them? Be real Perez. Then maybe you will get more respect. As of now, you're just a joke! You're "self-loathing". Stop and get the help you so seriously need. Then and only then will you find true happiness/love. It's so obvious. You don't have to be a psychotherapist to realize he has a problem that has been festering for a very long time.

    I had respect for him until I just recently viewed a video where he appears to be getting a tan from snooky. I thought he was on our side about the filth of what our society is. Now, to me he's not only a sellout but trash as well. He can go fuck himself. That's probably why his rating went to hell.
