Catching Up With Anderson Cooper on December 22, 2015

 
With the very capable John Berman in the AC360 anchor chair for the vacationing Anderson Cooper, we have a variety of Anderson items tonight.   First Anderson and Andy Cohen called into the Ron and Don Show in Seattle on December 16th to promote their upcoming AC2 Live show in January.  Here's the interview:

In the above interview Ron and Don talk about Anderson calling in prior to Andy and aired a bit of that conversation on December 17:

On Monday, December 21, 2015 Anderson posted the following to his IG account.  He's vacationing in Trancoso, Brazil - thus the green leaves and baby birds in December!

 

 

The above was a video:

CNN has been promoting Anderson's New Year's Eve coverage with Kathy Griffin.  Here are a couple of the commercials that have been airing:

Again, I was in and out of John Berman's 360. Here's what I saw on Tuesday's show:

- there's a new GOP poll, Cruz is a stronger #2 but has a "Likability Problem" as Dana Bash reported. Berman interviewed Rep. Peter King (R-NY) who then was joined by Amanda Carpenter and Ana Navarro for a discussion.
- "Trump vs. Clinton" I already saw this topic hashed out on Blitzer's show so I didn't watch it here.
- "Fiancee Visa Failure" how wife Malik of the San Bernardino terrorist couple filled out her visa application and were red flags missed, Kyung Lah with the info. Also "Muslim Deputy Under Attack" was on a deputy in Broward County FL and the radio commentator who doesn't like him.
- more on the Las Vegas deadly hit-and-run and the woman behind the wheel.
- part two of Sanjay Gupta's report on New Hampshire's heroin epidemic.
- Berman reminded viewers to go to the website and vote for favorite 2015 Ridiculist.

Loved the hungry baby birds video from Anderson's Brazilian back yard, hope he takes it easy and has a nice Christmas.

Also again, I will not be watching CNN's New Year's Eve show. I love Anderson but Kathy Griffin makes me hurl. Enough people watch the Anderson/Griffin NYE show to keep inviting Grittin back so they don't need me to watch. I don't even like watching the commercials for it.

The clip of the baby birds chirping in their nest is adorable--having a home in a tropical paradise must be pretty great.

Time fr 360 to get tougher on GOP language and call them out on anti gay, women and other comments. I think Zucker is very concerned about CNN image as a liberal network and that's why AC and others can't really go after republicans like in the past. Its so frustrating when they are not being pushed back on. John Berman does a very good job in trying to be balanced and in a non confronting way of pushing back. Wish AC would. AC 2008-2011 was on fire in KTH. Since he's been out he really has toned down his calling out republican comments and policies. AC sure loves Brazil. I want to go to Costa Rica. My partner said we will go one day!

I used to watch this new years eve show when AC was not publicly out, now that he has been out I just don't find it interesting. It used to be about what Kathy would say to make AC nervous on insinuating he was gay now that is disclosed it doesn't have the same punch. The act of Kathy all over AC also is very old. I'm going to watch fireworks.

I MUST AGREE ABOUT KG. I FIND HER CRASS, AND LOUD. SHE IS FOREVER INTERRUPTING ANDERSON AND HE
ALLOWS IT AND THINKS IT IS ENTERTAINING AND FUNNY. NOT FOR THIS VIEWER. I MUCH PREFER TO WATCH SOME
"CLEAN" ENTERTAINMENT ON ANOTHER NETWORK.
IT HAS NOT BEEN A GOOD YEAR ANYWAY FOR KG. SHE WAS FIRED OR WALKED OFF FASHION POLICE FOR BAD MOUTHING MELISSA'S LATE MOTHER, JOAN. NOT A GOOD IDEA KATHY.
IF KATHY NEEDS A JOB, SPEAKING OF LOUD AND CRASS, SHE MIGHT LOOK TO "THE DONALD." SHE'S JUST THE
TYPE HE'S LOOKING FOR...RED HEADED, CRASS, LOUD, OBSCENE AND LOVES CALLING OUT OTHERS AND THE WAY
THEY LOOK. A PERFECT MATCH. THEN AGAIN, THE DONALD IS NOT A FAN OF THE GAY ESTABLISHMENT.
AND KATHY CAN'T TAKE ORDERS FROM ANYBODY, SO THAT LEAVES CAMPAIGNING OUT...AND SHE KNOWS AS LITTLE
AS HE DOES ABOUT FOREIGN POLICY.

I'm in the minority here, I'm definitely watching AC and Kathy G. I've got no problems with their little act, they are great together actually.

ON SECOND THOUGHT, ANDY COHEN AND ANDERSON LOOK ADORABLE TOGETHER. ESPECIALLY THE PIX OF COHEN WITH
HIS HEAD ON ANDERSON'S SHOULDER. NOW THAT WOULD MAKE FOR AN ENTERTAINING NEW YEARS EVE COUPLING.
BUT ANDY IS BUSY GETTING HIS NJ FIX, NOW THAT THERESA IS OUT OF THE SLAMMER. ACCORDING TO THE NY POST,
BRAVO INTERVENED SO SHE WOULD BE ON HOUSE ARREST, CHAIN AND ALL, AND THEY COULD START FILMING HER HOME COMING.
THINGS HAVE NOT GONE WELL FOR THE NJ HOUSEWIVES SINCE THE STAR WAS VANISHED TO THE SLAMMER.
BUT WAIT, HUBBY WHO WILL START DOING HIS TIME IN FEBRUARY, GOT HIS LITTLE LADY A BRAND NEW LEXUS
AS A CHRISTMAS PRESENT.....NOW WHERE DID HE GET THE MONEY FOR THAT I WONDER?? ANDY'S ON THE CASE.
