CNN Pairs Anderson Cooper, Kathy Griffin for Possible Show
The last time CNN paired Anderson Cooper with Kathy Griffin to welcome in the new year the reality show staple pretended to fellate the silver-haired anchor.
America cringed. New CNN head honcho Jeff Zucker apparently felt a burst of inspiration.
The ratings-starved network brought the two together again this week, according to Deadline.com. The site reports Cooper and Griffin taped a pilot for a possible new show with Zucker himself on hand to consider the combination.
I hear the duo filmed a pilot today at the CNN studios in the Time Warner Center in New York. Details about the hourlong project are sketchy, but I’ve learned that it had a lot of humor in it and filmed in front of a live audience.
For too long CNN has aped the liberal leanings of MSNBC. Perhaps Zucker is looking toward reality TV high jinks as one solution for its ratings woes.
