Anderson Live, Monday, September 10, 2012

'Anderson' was back for season two and re-tooled, complete with a new name, Anderson Live. Anderson's first guest co-host was Kristen Chenoweth. The show is now opening with a new segment called The First 15 ~

and there was a little more after the break ~

Today's guest segments included: Honey Boo Boo child and her mom (via satellite); Tan Mom and her husband; and the remainder of Anderson's interview with Beyonce that he recorded earlier this summer at the United Nations.

BLOGGER'S NOTE: Each day we will clip "The First 15" and list guest segments. If you, our readers, are interested in a particular guest segment, please leave a request in comments and we will post it as an "extra" in the following day's talk show post.

Hi! I live in France and can't see the show at all. So I'm so glad you post these clips so I can see a bit of the show.
Frankly, I would love you to post the whole show, but I know ...
By the way, does anybody knows how it would be possible to watch Anderson Live from outside the US ?
Thanks again

Thanks for posting the clips! Think going live was a good idea. Love the use of the photo booth.

The show was preempted where I live by the US Open, thank God I didn't have to see Honey Boo Boo.

Hey did any of you see the infamous pix on 20/20 Friday night, they were part of a segment on celebrities and PDA and thinking they won't get caught.

I really like the new format. After also watching Katie Couric, I appreciate Anderson even more. He is real, not sickly sweet.

Hey, person in France.
I live in Delaware and the show isn't even in the offering, not that I'd watch.
He got the first 15 from his friend Kelly Ripa.
It could work well IF he had the same co-host each time.
Anderson is often awkward with women.
Why not try a male co-host like Neil Patrick Harris, who made a really good co-host last year.
Although Anderson seemed afraid of being "overshadowed."

I would like to see the clip of Jacqueline Laurita from the NJ Housewives if that is possible.
The NJ Housewives had almost 3 million viewers for its first episode this year....a number that any of the talkers might envy.

@Anon 9:10 - That wasn't part of today's show. We'll try to remember to clip is when it airs, but if we forget, please remind us in comments. Thanks!

Thanks, ATA, for the clip of the start of the show. Kristen Chenowith is adorable and the camaraderie with Anderson was there in bits and pieces. It felt a great deal like the opening chats Anderson had with Kelly Ripa when he co-hosted over there.

Kudos to Anderson for talking about coming out. Hopefully this will be all that's needed and everybody can say, okay, that's settled, move on.

"Beyonce's going to be on the show later." Anderson said. Well, yes, she was on the show but if I was in the audience I would feel kind of gypped that she wasn't there in person. The Presidential Hugger and Honey Boo Boo were also only *there* by satellite. I don't know how anyone else feels about that but I think it sort of cheapens the show for the studio audience.

Regarding the daily co-host, a person smarter than me explained it well. Of all the fans who tune in just because they are a fan of the day's co-host, maybe a percentage will be impressed enough with Anderson to watch often. And another percentage from the next day's co-hosts fans. It grows and builds.

Who knows what the actual numbers will be. I'm hoping Anderson can make this work even though I'm still worried about his workload.

I thought the fact that "Honey Boo Boo Child" could not be there in person because she had school was a great way to start off season 2. I, of course, didn't watch it because I had to wash my hair.

@jaanza: What they are trying is chemistry, in the same way Kelly tried out different chat hosts.
But in the end, for Kelly, she got very litttle say. Disney called the shots.
With Anderson, I really don't know who he has chemsitry with when it comes to women.
With Kelly it was "manufactured" chemistry and it always seemed as though he was trying too hard.
I don't watch his dayshow, but from the clips he always seems to try too hard and not relax.
Just the opposite of his friend Andy Cohen who always seems to be having fun and control.
Cohen controls his surroundings and everything on the show.
He's not a delegater.
Anderson seems to have very little say.
