Anderson Cooper, Friday, August 10, 2012

AC360 is airing a "Special Report: Keeping Them Honest" tonight so we are using this opportunity to catch up on some things that didn't get posted as they happened this week.

Anderson anchored AC360 from Wisconsin Monday night and then stuck around to be guest on Dr. Drew's HLN program ~

On Tuesday afternoon, Anderson appeared on Newsroom to discuss the shooting ~

...and lots of extras


Anderson posted the above photo to his Instagram account "Just interviewed @Beyonce. She could not be any nicer." Then added via tweet "Some of my @Beyonce intv will air on @AC360 next week. Some of it will air on the premier week of #AndersonLive starting Sept 10."

According to CBS News, Beyonce to sing at U.N. for humanitarian aid cause

(CBS News) UNITED NATIONS - Imagine: The Iranian U.N. Ambassador grooving to "All the Single Ladies" with Beyonce, at the same General Assembly podium where Col. Muammar Qaddafi once rambled on for hours and Nikita Khrushchev once pounded his shoe.
Well, not exactly. Beyonce WILL be there tonight. It is not clear which ambassadors will attend (the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice, is on her way to the Olympics' closing ceremony), but what we do know is that Beyonce will sing "I Was Here" to honor World Humanitarian Day on August 19.

A music video of Friday's event, produced by Ridley Scott & Associates, directors Kenzo Digital and Sophie Miller and the award-winning advertising agency Droga5, will be filmed of tonight's performance.

The objective: To get 1 billion people to view the video - and learn about the campaign.

Adding to the Beyonce glow will be other celebrities: American film producer Harvey Weinstein, Sean "Puffy" Combs (otherwise known as P. Ditty), designer Kenneth Cole, and some relatives of famous politicians, including Lauren Bush (the granddaughter of Bush 41 and niece of Bush 43).

World Humanitarian Day was created to mark the anniversary of the August 19, 2003 bombing of the U.N. offices in Baghdad, which killed 22 people.

The event is being organized by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), and Valerie Amos, the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs.

"I hope everyone will pledge to complete at least one humanitarian action - however great or small - through, said Amos. "Together we can create an unprecedented awareness of the plight of people affected by crises around the world."

World Humanitarian Day spokesperson Kirsten Mildren told CBS News it is an occasion to honor "all humanitarian aid workers who have died, but it is also about people helping their communities after a disaster. Syria is obviously a priority right now, but this is a day to highlight small acts around the world, good deeds." (please click on above link for full article)

A "little bird" told us Anderson is hosting the event tonight.

From people live tweeting the event - Anderson Cooper on stage asks "Is this what goes at the UN every Friday." Says he won't be giving his rendition of "Single Ladies"


As part of a team-building for Season 2, Executive Producer Terence thought it would be fun for the staff to jump on board one of NYC's most unique tour buses -- The Ride. Anderson, however, was not quite as excited. Take a look...

And a few photos from "The Ride" from the 'Anderson' website ~

And some "Ask Anderson" videos were posted this week ~

Anderson responds to a tweet sent by @Mimsy Yamaguchi, who asked, "What TV show cast would you love to have as guests?" Anderson replied, "There are so many good TV shows on right now that I love." Find out which shows he likes.

Anderson answers a tweet from @Deelaney, who asked about the new set for "Anderson Live."

In this "Ask Anderson" question, @lilacmist asks, "Any chance u r related to Melissa Sue Anderson from" little house" fame? u have similar eyes & looks."

In this "Ask Anderson" video, @randa_monster asks, " Are u gonna have @ladygaga on during season 2???? PLEASE DO!!"

This August, Anderson and the team at "Anderson Live" want to catch up with you and follow the fun you're having this summer as the countdown begins to our new season, which starts Sept. 10!

OK. Here's a question for Anderson.
If his interview with Beyonce is being done as we speak, how can it be live?
Just asking.

Wow, great job compiling all the articles, pics and clips--I had no idea AC appeared on Dr. Drew's show. I did watch Friday's 360 and was happy to see political commentator Nia Malika Henderson on with John King and Candy Crowley--she usually sticks to MSNBC.

I figured AC would eventually snag an interview with Beyonce since he's pretty much interviewed all the major divas in music.

I agree with the first commenter.
Most A-listers will seek other means of promotion because Anderson's viewership is so low.
