Remember when Anderson Cooper went after Star Jones, on his syndicated daytime talk show Anderson Live because Star insinuated that Anderson came out as gay on his show for ratings? Well, it looks like Star Jones may be getting the last laugh after all, because…
Warner Brothers just announced its decision to the cancel Anderson Cooper’s daytime talk show, “Anderson Live” after only two seasons.
According to the TheWrap.com, “Anderson Live” failed to generate enough ratings during its first season on air. After making a few changes in the second season, Anderson Cooper still failed to get the needed ratings to compete with the newly introduced daytime talk shows, Rickie Lake and The Katie Couric Show.
Here’s what a spokeswoman told TheWrap.com,
“We are extremely proud of Anderson and the show that he and the entire production team have produced,” the spokeswoman said. “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.”
Nonetheless, the CNN anchor released a statement says that he was both very proud and grateful…
“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 [production company] Telepictures for giving me the opportunity, and indebted to viewers, who have responded so positively,” the CNN journalist said in a statement. “I look forward to doing more great shows this season, and though I’m sorry we won¹t be continuing, I have truly enjoyed it.”
