Anderson Cooper 360, Monday 11/25/13


Wolf Blitzer was in the AC360 anchor chair tonight.  Does anyone besides us wonder why, with all the talent at CNN, we get Wolf Blitzer as the designated sub for AC night after night.  Come on CNN, it's not like he's killing it in ratings so why not give someone else a chance?  Anyone want to offer some suggestions?  You never know who's reading ATA comments.



EXTRAS:
Anderson tweeted on Saturday that he was in Tangiers, Morocco for a few days. 



After that tweet he Instagramed a few pictures of local color:




We're guessing he will return to anchor 360 on Monday, December 2nd but we've been wrong many, many times before so keep checking in and we'll keep you posted if there are sightings or news.

An Anderson Cooper Sunday on Television

Anderson has two television appearances tonight...

A brief appearance on The Simpsons


And a report on 60 Minutes


From CBS News 60 Minutes:



Malcolm Gladwell: Inside the outsider
On his long hair, the Ivy Leagues, door bells and being an outsider: Malcolm Gladwell lets his hair down on "60 Minutes"

If you think he looks cool when his hair is long, he's not. If you think going to an Ivy League school is an advantage, he says it's actually a disadvantage. Door bells? He has no use for them. Meet Malcolm Gladwell as he talks about his writing, his life as a self-described outsider and his new book. Anderson Cooper speaks to the best-selling author for a 60 Minutes profile Sunday, Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

The curly-haired writer sometimes lets his hair get out of control and he says it gives people the wrong impression about him. "People assume when my hair is long that I am a lot cooler than I actually am," he says with a laugh. "I am not opposed to this misconception, by the way, but it is a misconception," says Gladwell, a self-described hermit.

As for the Ivy Leagues, he says they are not always the best place to go for a good student. How does a student good enough to get into an Ivy League school keep his confidence up around students as good or better than he is? "If you're last in your class at Harvard, it doesn't feel like you are a good student," says Gladwell, who attended the University of Toronto, a state college. "I come to New York and all kinds of people who went to Harvard and Yale are mentioning that in every second sentence. It drives me crazy," he tells Cooper, who informs him that he went to Yale.

Door bells drive him crazy, too. So he doesn't have one. "I don't want a door bell. I don't want anyone ringing my door bell...seems to be intrusive," says the author. "They can call me on their cell phones."

Gladwell has been a staff writer for The New Yorker for 17 years, where the famous literary magazine's editor, David Remnick, has come to know him well. "I think what he is interested in is testing and pressing against received wisdom...what we think of our ideas of the world," he tells Cooper.

His unique perspective comes in part from being bi-racial and always feeling like an outsider, he says. "We lived in England, then we moved to Canada, where we were sort of outsiders. And then I moved to America, where I am kind of an outsider," Gladwell says. "So I feel like I've constantly been in this situation of shaking my head and thinking, 'This is a strange place.'"


We will have both covered for you.  Please check back later tonight.

Anderson Cooper 360 Tuesday, 11/19/2013


It was an extra busy day for Mr. Cooper, as you'll see in extras, so Wolf Blitzer (it has been suggested we call him our new 'he who must not be named') was in the 360 anchor chair at 8 PM and there was a rerun of the Ted Turner documentary in the 10 PM hour.  But have no fear we still have your AC fix for the day in extras. 

 EXTRAS:
Lots & lots of extras tonight so get comfortable and here we go:

Anderson and CNN pretaped the Heroes special that will air on December 1st tonight in NYC.  Here are a few pictures from rehearsal today:


Walking the red carpet:


Greeting the Heroes and guests:



David Letterman added Anderson as a last minute guest on Tuesday to fill in for an ill Jennifer Lawrence.  We've got the appearance if you missed it and will include it in our extras on Wednesday night's post.
On Monday night David Letterman had plenty to say about Toronto's crack-smoking mayor and poked a little fun at Anderson Cooper (CNN's promotion was a little misleading; it seemed to indicate Anderson would conduct the interview, not Bill Weir.)


video

And AC tweeted that he'll be on The Simpson's this Sunday at 8 PM. 


I think that about covers it for now.  BTW if you missed the changes coming to CNN weeknights check out our sister blog All Things CNN.
