A blog dedicated to CNN's AC360 and its host Anderson Cooper.
The ATA Team
I saw this when it aired yesterday--AC and Joy seemed to have a lot of fun together and the quips were flying non-stop. I notice that Anderson loves to playfully mock Wolf Blitzer whenever he gets the chance.
Anybody else hear how AC said he WAS a war correspondent? Sounds like that's a thing of the past.
Until Anderson decides what he really wants to be when he grows up, his ratings dayside and at night will continue to slide.Viewers have decided he is to remain a newsman and if doesn't want to, well he may find himself looking for work.He's gotten a little "too cute," for his own good.
TVN is reporting that 360 came in third at 10PM and fourth at 8PM.Something tells me, all these personality changes is not doing AC much good viewer wise.He may think he's a laugh a minute, but the jokes on him.The newest edition of people has a smart but fair review of "Anderson."In essence, it says, Anderson can hob nob with the best, but they question his ability to host a talk show. Translation: He's not Mr.Showbiz and there's nothing about him that's compelling enough to hold viewers, maybe an audience, but not viewers.
Good for Joy, saying "Give it a rest, OK Anderson!"He will be getting more of that.He's beginning to be more than annoying.Give it a REST!Someone has to put this guy in his place.
WOW! Some nasty comments here!@anon 6:19, who are you talking about?? I'm a viewer and I have NOT decided that AC should remain a newsman. In fact, I like seeing Anderson's more private and personal side. Much better than sitting on a chair like a statue. It's just the lame topics I have a gripe with. I think Anderson does a great job hosting. And he's never too cute for anything.He seems to be burned out by all the horrible suffering in Africa and elsewhere. He said he wants to have more fun, and after 44 years of being miserable and reclusive, who are you to say that he cannot do that?? He has every right to have fun and to be himself. I wish he covered more "brainy" subjects, but he is probably restricted by his employer and the "sponsors" they are afraid to lose.Bottom line: If you don't like it, don't watch. Nobody makes you.
Hey, 9:20PM, print media matters.As well as ratings.What you like doesn't mean everyone does.6:19PM should have said Most viewers, though.
