Anderson Cooper Will Host A Daytime Talk Show

anderson cooperHoly hell, Batman! The Silver Fox is coming to daytime TV! The Hollywood Reporter’s blog reports Anderson Cooper signed a deal with Telepictures Productions and Warner Bros. that would make him the host of a syndicated talk show. Quick, man your THIS IS THE SILVER LINING TO THE ABSENCE OF A CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS SEQUEL battle stations!

In addition to hosting his own show on CNN called AC360 just utterly spectacularly, the Silver Fox has proven himself quite capable of refusing to demonstrate any exercise technique on Live with Regis Takes a Sick Day But Kelly’s Here!, which makes him the perfect guy to kill an hour when it’s too late to eat lunch and too early to eat dinner. If the deal goes through the show is supposed to launch in the fall of 2011, and is “billed as a topical format that will cover everything from celebrities and pop culture to social issues, but would also show off Cooper’s skill with news stories.”

“Skill with news stories?” We already know about his “skill with news stories.” That’s probably what he tells himself before he changes a tire. What about his “skill with interacting with Kelly Ripa?” Does he not consider that to be anything significant? HE SHOULD, because she is in rare form sometimes, and he should consider his new daytime show as a reward for attempting to end her reign of marketing excellent ovens and refrigerators and encouraging our muscles (who would much rather stay hidden) to jut out.
