We reported last night that Anderson Cooper is scheduled to be the speaker at the "Celebrity Forum" in Cupertino, CA each of the next three nights. Given the time difference, Anderson is able to anchor AC360 and make the speaking engagements by anchoring from a local studio. While his coloring wasn't as "orange" as it was from the LA bureau studio Monday night, it was definitely different than the NYC studio.
Tonight's AC360 ended with the following RidicuList - Lost and Found:
Anderson replied to a tweet from one of the Forum attendees:
We will watch for photos and news from his speaking engagements.
TV Newser broke the news today about Anderson hosting a political game show?!
CNN to Produce Political Game Show
By Chris Ariens on Jan. 21, 2015 - 2:24 PM
First on TVNewser: CNN is producing a political game show, TVNewser has learned. The blocking and testing of the show is happening this week at CNN’s New York studios.
Insiders tell us the show will be hosted by Anderson Cooper and will air on Presidents’ Day, Feb. 16. If it’s successful, further episodes would go into production.
We hear the program will be a quiz style game show, focused on presidential politics.
As the Sony email hacking story unfolded last month, one of the more interesting TV news stories to emerge was that CNN Worldwide chief Jeff Zucker had asked a Sony TV executive if the company would consider producing “Political Jeopardy!” for CNN.
That was a nonstarter. But now it appears Zucker is going his own way on a quiz show.
