Anderson Cooper's daytime talk show cancelled

Anderson Cooper's daytime talk show cancelled

First it was the soaps and now it's Anderson. It's official: the gay is leaving daytime!

Warner Bros announced that Cooper's daytime show is getting the axe when it finishes its second season. They released the following statement:

We are extremely proud of Anderson and the show that he and the entire production team have produced. While we made significant changes to the format, set and produced it live in its second season, the series will not be coming back for a third season in a marketplace that has become increasingly difficult to break through. We will continue to deliver top-quality shows throughout next summer.

Cooper also released a statement about the cancellation to The New York Times

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

The ratings just aren't in daytime like they used to be, and I think instead of cancelling shows, they should be considering different ways to count viewers. Most young people I know don't even own televisions. In this day and age, if you can't stream it, it doesn't exist.

But don't worry, you'll still be able to get your daily dose of silver fox on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360.

Anderson Cooper is a tireless
Anderson Cooper is a tireless, indefatigable reporter and news broadcaster...but as a daytime talk show host, he was something of a disaster. "Anderson" never distinguished itself - it was a redundant product from the get-go...and Cooper himself seemed ill at ease in the chatty celeb format. Not surprised it's been yanked. But he'll continue to star on CNN and forge new career paths for himself.
