A Look Back At NYE, AC Style

As the countdown to New Year's Eve begins we thought it a good time to take a look back at clips from the last few NYE broadcasts with Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin.
ATA won't be live blogging AC's NYE show this year but we will have clips posted as soon as possible. We hope everyone has a safe and fun NYE.









The Shot on New Year's Day 2009 was a look back at the highs and lows of the New Years Eve 2008 special.

More 2008/09:
Before the program began….

I wish CNN would ditch Kathy. She is skanky and disgusting. CNN NYE was much better when it was just Anderson. NYE is the one time where he dosen't need a co-host.

To those folks who continued to watch 360 this week, even though AC was not there, Cheers to Randi Kaye for her hard work and fortitude.
There was also a cute clip, of banter between AC and KG tonite showing a photo of Gloria's birthday party for Kathy. I don't get Gloria's friendship but.... The only thing I find annoying is Griffin's CONTINUAL interrupting Anderson and trying to overshadow him.
I do know she insisted upon having CNN bill her as a co-host. What else did this Diva want? Possibly the entire show. We shall see tomorrow.
And Anderson did show off his black frames again. Sorry but black is not becoming.

I'm so looking forward to it! It should be a good show.

Happy New Year everyone!

I just want to share something with everyone today before we start the year, 2011. Remember that life is short....I hope everyone will be happy and peaceful this coming year. Please treasure the good things and be happy for friends and family you have. I lost my brother in 2010 and it has really made me see that life is precious. Don't sweat the small stuff... treasure the good things and don't waste time on the negative things in life. :)

Love to you all!

@Judy, KG seems to think the show is hers and not Anderson's. I really wish she would screw up and get tossed. Anderson did just fine back when he hosted the show alone. Will I be watching tonight? No way would I waste my time on the new she who must not be named.

I totally agree with others about Kathy Griffin. She ruined the show for me last night.

I do think Anderson needs someone to interact with in this kind of setting, but definitely not her.

I also feel that they used the supposed "leash" put on Kathy as a gimmicky tool during the show. It was not cute, at all.

I also don't get the friendships that Gloria seems to strike up with the women Anderson knows(thinking Kelly Ripa here, too).
