A SPECIAL EDITION OF ANDERSON COOPER 360
Anderson Cooper opened a "Special Edition of AC360" by explaining that he was basically filling the 9pmET "time slot for 2 weeks until Piers Morgan got his act together and gets his show on the air."
His first guest was Michael Moore who joked, "I'm your first guest on your new show that will last only two weeks. I'm honored."
