Anderson Cooper FIRED From Daytime! Talk Show Cancelled!

| Filed under: TV NewsAnderson Cooper

Well, that didn't last very long did it?

Can't say we're surprised, but we can say we're disappointed.

It was just announced that Anderson Cooper's run as daytime's most sophisticated Vanderbilt talk show host has come to an end, as Warner Bros. will not be renewing Anderson Live for a third season.

While it's true that the CNN heavyweight never did find his niche with viewers, there was an evident revamp going into season two that showed some promise. Unfortunately, it just didn't pay off.

In a statement about his show coming to an end, Anderson reminisced:

I am very proud of the work that our terrific staff has put into launching and sustaining our show for two seasons. I am also grateful to Telepictures for giving me the opportunity, and indebted to viewers, who have responded so positively. I look forward to doing more great shows this season, and though I’m sorry we won’t be continuing, I have truly enjoyed it.

It was fun while it lasted. At least this wasn't you're only gig!

T.V. would be a sad, sad place without our favorite Silver Fox!

    I far prefer Anderson as a serious journalist. Seeing him lower himself to talk to reality stars was cringe-worthy.

    It is funny that s/one wants to ruin their career and be a hack and people won't let him. Cutie Cooper you tried to role in the mud but people keep toweling you off.

    Poor baby. I think he should have everything. Born rich. All the doors open for him because of his famous mother's last name. Why not give the super rich guy another great paying job? No one else needs one.

    No surprise. When the "Silver Fox" came out of the closet, his female viewership went down. The fantasy for the bored housewives was ruined. This is also why Warners won't risk casting a gay actor as Superman. At the end of the day, it is all about the money.

    he's gotten camper and tackier by the minute since he came out the closet. Maybe he should go back in?

    Re: Truth Hertz – That is so silly. I am not a bored housewife but if I was home all day who would I wan't? Some guy who doesn't "get" my shows? Or do I want a beautiful gay man to dish with…Gay man wins every time. But Anderson Cooper WAS a respected news man, he SEEMED to have integrity and he kind of gave it the finger and went to the very thing that makes TRUE journalism extinct. Why we good looking news "readers' that sensationalize and lie. It is hardly a guilty pleasure if someone of substance is doing it, you can't legitimize smut. HSwives Kardasians. It is ok if a Maury or Andy Cohen do it, their smutty too. But you make it a GAY thing



  7. 7

    I wouldn't say he was fired? That would make it seem he would not be finishing the show. They will be completing the 2nd season. You just want to make it sound juicier than it is.



  8. 8

    I'm stunned. I DVR his show almost every day. I thought this season was going well with the guests hosts. I'm sad.

    Re: Truth Hertz

    I'm pretty sure most people knew he was gay before announcing it.

    Re: ThIsIsFaLSe: If you are not a "bored housewife", then don't pretend to talk for the women of America. The ratings went down after he came out. It is a gay thing, whether you like it or not. Nothing wrong with being gay, but it did alienate a big part of his female, conservitive, audience. Truth hurts.

    Re: Mirom – You're a fucking MORON!

    Not surprised. Anderson is one of my favourite news anchors but he just never fit in the talk show sphere. As others have said, someone with his integrity just never worked there…he made his guests look silly.

    HAHAHAHA The gay agenda is now OFF of daytime TV LOL



  17. 17

    Imagine my surprise. The air waves are full up with liberal 1%ers telling all the poor people how well off they will be after another 4 years of nobammy. apparently even WB network feels their cup runneth over with shit worthless shows.

    Re: boston61 – OMFG! At least he is working and not sitting on his royal ass living off of mommies money!! Give the guy some credit, he went to college and is at least working for a living..geesh!!1

    Love him, but never could get into his show. He should do more of a Chelsea Handler early evening fun kind of show. His daytime one was too boring.

    Anderson was not fired from his CBS talk show. I would say that the show was canceled. His show was not the only show canceled. I liked his show and watch it when I could. But I'm sure that Anderson is not worry about money. He still has CNN and 60 Minutes. Good work Anderson Cooper. I will miss your afternoon show but I can still watch you on your other shows. You are a great news reporter and seem like a great person to know.

    Queue the "it was canceled because he came out as gay" talke.

    Re: raypearson – why are you bringing up Obama and politics? This has nothing to do that that. It has to do with his failure as a tv show host. Please go spread your stupid ill informed "political knowledge" elsewhere.

    He should have taken that Live with Kelly gig while he had the chance. But regardless, I think he is great either way.

    Well that seems like a bit of a rude and deceiving title…. He wasn't "FIRED" the show was just cancelled… I thought his show was really great I absolutely love every episode. It's too bad that a show that actually has a good mix of world news and culture had to get cancelled.



  25. 25

    when was he a serious journalist? that tool has always had an agenda.

    I really liked him on CNN as a newscaster. Not sure what channel his TV show is on, when my computer was being repaired I watched game shows and Judge Judy (she is really cool).



  28. 28

    I'm not surprise … There are too many talk shows in television these days and I didn't see anything relevant about the show either. As much I love Anderson, I'll prefer him doing what he do the best in CNN !

    I did NOT like season 2 of anderson. The background was horrible to look at, it looked like the jerry springer show. He lost me as a viewer when he changed it to Anderson Live. I liked Season 1 much much better.

    I am happy for him because CNN is going to the pot and turns viral to be a republican news station without logical sense. Good reporters will all leave or get fired by CNN sooner or later anyway…CNN is now equal to fox news, their sister company, and I will stop watching CNN because I am an intelligent news viewer that I do not have to listen to CNN, Fox News uneducated and illogical biased opinion!
