America may regard Anderson Cooper a hard-hitting journalist, an LGBT advocate, and a world-champion giggler, but as a talk-show host, audiences say, “Eh.”
At least, that’s what today’s cancellation of his syndicated talk show, Anderson Live,implies.
“We are extremely proud of Anderson and the show that he and the entire production team have produced,” a Warner Bros. spokeswoman tells TheWrap. “While we made significant changes [...] 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.”
Anderson, for his part, seems to have no ill will about his show getting nixed.
“I am very proud of the work that our terrific staff has put into launching and sustaining our show for two seasons,” he says, “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.”
At least we’ll still get a fix of Anderson’s silver-foxiness — uh, rather, his incisive journalism on his CNN news show, Anderson Cooper 360°.
