From today's Promax conference speech we have a wealth of extras. First this write up from Broadcast & Cable:

Anderson' to Show Lighter Side of CNN Host
Cooper will continue to travel, tape three days a week to balance schedule

By Andrea Morabito -- Broadcasting & Cable, 6/29/2011 2:07:36 PM

New York -- Now that Anderson Cooper is launching a syndicated daytime talk show, he can finally reveal how much he likes the Real Housewives franchise. "It's nice to do something that shows you as a fully-rounded person," he told the audience at the PromaxBDA conference Wednesday of his upcomingAnderson, which premieres Sept. 12. "I think people know you can be incredibly passionate about what's happening in Syria and you can have guilty pleasures." Cooper will continue on his nightly CNN news program, AC 360, which means Anderson will shoot two shows a day, three days a week to allow the anchor to manage his other responsibilities. He also said he'll have a week's worth of shows pre-taped should he have to travel to cover breaking news for CNN. "I know for a fact that I'll still be able to travel and that's important to me," he said. He also noted that if a news event was of interest to a daytime audience, that he'd bring some Anderson staff with him to cover it for the daytime show. Cooper made a point of saying that nothing will be repurposed from one show to the other, each will have separate staffs with a separate focus. "There will be times when there will be similar things," on both shows, he said. "But the two shows are going to be very different and distinct." For Cooper, his foray into daytime was really just an outlet to tell more human stories, exemplified by his past coverage of news eventslike Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf oil spill, but that he can't always do on a newscast if the topics aren't newsworthy. "I realized that's what I like to do the most, it's when I feel most useful," he said of telling personal stories of relevance to people's every day lives. "In daytime, you can do that pretty much every day." While Anderson launches this fall, a year ahead of the 2012 elections, Cooper says the show won't be doing a lot on politics, at least not until the race gets much narrower. "There are so many places where viewers who are interested in that can get that."

Anderson is going to Cuba tomorrow for a 60 minutes shoot. Wonder what that is about. I guess he will be off the rest of the week.

Oops ATA gals, there's a typo above the video for the Countess L's song - you spelled her name wrong. It says "THE RIDICULIST: Countess Louann" I think it's just LuAnn.

(you can delete this if I'm wrong or you fix it - I'm a proof reader in my other life!!LOL that's why I caught it!!)

Great blog, I missed the Kicinich part because I was late watching the show, so thanks for posting it.

I came in late, during the segment Anderson was talking to the two women about Rep. Kucinich. But I was in time to watch Anderson and Isha have some hilarious banter, more fun and boisterous than we've seen in a while.

For all the 360 watchers who hate the coverage of the Casey Anthony trial, at least it's almost over. Maybe they will have closing argument on Sunday and the jury will decide quickly. Then it's just another couple days of wrap-up and it'll be all done.

Personally, it looks suspicious to me when the defendant doesn't take the stand in their own defense. Then it looks like their story won't stand up to the prosecuter's cross-examination.

Loved the Ridiculist even though I don't watch any of the Real Housewives shows. Count Chocula, the Count, Edith Piaf and Lord Voldemort and making me feel better about my own lousy singing.

I appreciate AC's sense of humor, however I was not happy when he made a sarcastic comment about Piers Morgan's Twitter follower numbers. Even Isha caught the sarcasm. You might not like someone, but if he/she is a colleague, then respect trumps sarcasm.

Funny RidicuList last nite. I love when Anderson makes fun of the housewives songs. None of them can sing. Danielle Staub is the worst singer of them all!

Come on Anderson was just playing with Morgan

Just call he LuLu like they do on the message boards. Doubt if AC will ever be on RWONYC, if he would be on he'd bring class to the show.

Anderson is doing a panel in NOLA with the Real Housewives this weekend

Phebe said...

Anderson has been replaced at the Essence appearance this weekend in NOLA by AJ Hammer.
AC said yesterday (see the tweets we posted) that he leaves for Cuba today. There will be a special airing in the 360 hour on Friday and on Monday. We expect there to be a sub in for Cooper tonight.

Oh, sorry did not know Anderson was replaced.

He should broadcast tonights show live from Cuba

I don't see the tweet where Anderson says he is not going to NOLA.

Fully agree with 10:49AM:
Absolutely no need for that kind of "playing" or sarcasm when you know your colleague is not doing well.
I'm no fan of Piers Morgan. In fact I don't even like him, but how would AC like Piers Morgan to go after his ratings when their low and somethimes AC, they are low indeed.

Anderson was not talking about ratings. He was talking about twitter follow's

Jon Stewart does NOT twitter to anybody and he has an average of almost 3 million viewers per night.
That tells me that twitter means nothing in terms of ratings and you don't make fun of your fellow colleague. It just isn't respectful, especially if you know he's having a hard time adjusting.
