I thought Meghan McCain was a poor choice of a co-host on what was to be Anderson Live's Inauguration show. I know it was pre-taped on Friday, so the idea of trying to pretend it was Live on Monday was rather silly to begin with. But to have a Republican co-host on the day a Democrat was being inaugurated was in poor taste and a slap in the face to Democrat viewers. The last thing I wanted to watch on a gloriously uplifting Inauguration day was a Republican whining about how her candidate didn't win. For someone that supposedly cares about politics and our country, Meghan McCain needed to act like an adult and check her feelings at the door or if that was to hard for her, to decline the co-host position for the day.

Not sure who is fascinated by her as a co-host since this was her third time co-hosting and she isn't that strong of a co-host compared to others who have sat at the desk with Anderson. All around a bad choice on Terence's part IMO.

I'm also over Terence's obsession with Anderson's jeans and Botox. Sounds like Terence is the one that needs "mental health Mondays" not Anderson, but then again, I'm not sure one day would be enough for all of Terence's "issues". If I were Anderson, I certainly wouldn't put up with that condescending tone from my Executive Producer. Something tells me the end of March can't some soon enough for Anderson.

I agree with anon 5:08, it was completely inappropriate for Megan McCain to co-host the Inauguration show--it seemed to me to be a way of taking down the President a notch and the significance of his win and the day--it was disgusting. And it was also infuriating to listen to AC and Meghan talking about "Girls" star Lena Dunham's comments--they may have been offended by her metaphor but McCain's chosen political party has some very extreme and offensive views and policies, so it's hard for me to sympathize with her (and Anderson's) hurt feelings over what she said about Republicans.

I didn't see this show but I'm not surprised Anderson allowed Meghan McCain to co-host.
If he took control of his show, which he never did, he would have told his producers 'NO, this is clearly a conflict of interests.
Her father ran against President Obama, a phrase he seldom utters, and I don't want her as my co-host on this occasion.'
But, he never cared enough to say this, and that is just another reason Anderson Live IS canceled.

Yes, Anon, I agree. Anderson should under any circumstances turn his daytime talkshow into a political platform. Anyone who doesn't agree with his political leaning should not be invited. How dare he invite someone who is not 100% fond of Obama.

I am getting the feeling that some people expect of him to be some kind of outspoken advocate for liberal democrats. Frankly, he is already not exactely subtile about it (at least compared to pundits in my country who cannot show any affiliation or sympathy for a political leaning at all) but you will never get this clear partisan stuff from him. That's what Bill Maher, Morgan and the like are for.

@trampadoo: Every American here, besides myself, disagrees with you.
So maybe, just maybe, we all have a built in loyalty to our President
that has absolutely nothing to do with Anderson Cooper!
