Anderson Live Information

Anderson Live, formerly known as simply Anderson, is an American first-run syndicated talk show that is hosted by CNN anchorman Anderson Cooper, who also serves as co-producer in his first foray into daytime talk television. It debuted on September 12, 2011, as Anderson, and is distributed by Warner Bros. Television in the United States and Canada. The show was canceled early in its second season and will continue to air new episodes at least through spring 2013.


2010"12: Anderson

It was announced in September 2010 that Cooper had signed a deal with Warner Bros. and Telepictures to host a nationally syndicated talk show. As part of negotiations over the talk show deal, Cooper signed a new multi-year contract with CNN to continue as the host of Anderson Cooper 360. According to Cooper, the program would be a lot different from AC360, saying that it's "not a news program," and he added that "We think this will be the only show on the air that covers a broad spectrum of topics." However in December 2011 the program was declared a "news program" by the Federal Communications Commission at the insistence of the show's producers to exclude it from equal time provisions ahead of the 2012 presidential election cycle. The show was taped at Jazz at Lincoln Center's The Allen Room, inside Manhattan's Time Warner Center, the complex where Cooper also hosts AC 360.

2012: Anderson Live

After the first season, it was announced that the show would be relocated to the CBS Broadcast Center for season two, moving into the Studio 42 soundstage where The Nate Berkus Show was taped prior to its cancellation. On July 31, 2012, it was also announced that a "overhaul" of the show would start in the second season, with the series being renamed Anderson Live and a switch to a format featuring a live studio audience, interactive social media, and adding guest co-hosts, a formula that worked well in the May 2012 ratings sweeps.


On October 29, 2012, it was announced that Anderson Live would not return for a third season; it will air new episodes until at least through spring 2013. Cooper said he was very proud of the show and the people involved in its production.
