Anderson Cooper's Talk Show to Get Overhaul for Second Season B&C
"Anderson," the daytime talk show starring CNN fixture Anderson Cooper, will be overhauled by Warner Bros. for the show's second season, including a new name and new features, reports B&C.
The new name will be "Anderson Live," reflecting that the show will be taped in front of a live studio audience, and the show will move to a new permanent set at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York City. The show previously taped at the Time Warner Center.
The show will also feature different co-hosts each day, an experiment that the show tried successfully during the May sweeps, the piece notes. It's also possible the show will tap a permanent co-host to be featured along with Cooper.
Additionally, the show's website, AndersonCooper.com, is introducing several new features, such as "Stump Anderson," which encourages fans to send Cooper trivia questions that he will answer during live webcasts, the story adds.
