A recently launched daytime talk program has been renewed for a second season, reports B&C

The show is Anderson Cooper’s "Anderson."

One key to the pickup is that the show will now be airing on Fox’s WNYW in New York, instead of Tribune’s WPIX, the story says.

According to the article, "The Fox Television Stations have picked up the show in New York, Minneapolis and Tampa and are renewing it in Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston, according to Ken Werner, president, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, and Rick Meril, executive VP of WBDTD. Other station groups renewing the show include LIN, Meredith, Gannett and Midwest."

The story adds, "Tribune, meanwhile, is expected to pick up Twentieth’s ‘Ricki Lake’ in New York and other markets, according to several sources, although that deal is not yet complete. Should Tribune acquire ‘Ricki Lake’ in New York, that show will join Disney-ABC’s ‘Katie Couric’ and NBCU’s ‘Steve Harvey’ as firm gos for fall 2012."

Nellie Andreeva of Deadline.com writes of the renewal. "While not a breakout hit, ‘Anderson’ is doing decently in the ratings, averaging a 1.4."
