Looking back at the Monday, December 26th episode of 'Anderson' - Anderson's New Year's Eve Show with Kathy Griffin & Gloria Vanderbilt ~

In this clip, Anderson and Kathy learn how to open a champagne bottle with a saber ~


Anderson's mom, Gloria Vanderbilt, joined the two on stage ~


The episode included three other segments:

Anderson met two young girls who preformed CPR on one of their moms and saved her life. The girls had learned CPR from watching Grey's Anatomy and Patrick Dempsey joined in via satellite.

Anderson spoke with Jonathan Safran Foer, the author of one of Anderson's favorite books, "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close," which is now a feature film starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock.

And there were a couple of holiday viral videos, where the "stars" of the videos were on stage to recreate "YouTube" moments.

Anderson is quoted as saying "Pundits know nothing," when speaking to David Letterman in part one.
Well, if pundits know "nothing" then how come they are always booked on Anderson's show?
David you missed a chance to really get AC.
