The daytime talk show market is a tough one, and Anderson Cooper gave it a good shot. In spite of the changes made to the show this season in an attempt to boost interest, Anderson will not be coming back for a third season. The news isn’t exactly surprising; with so many new talk shows attempting to fill the Oprah void, Anderson launched at a tough time.
Hot on the heels of the news earlier today that Queen Latifah will start up her new talk show on CBS next fall comes the word that Anderson Cooper won’t be among her competition. EW says producers have decided not to seek a renewal for Season 3. Anderson sought to raise the ratings after a its first season by changing to a live format and updating the set. It wasn’t enough to keep the show alive, however. In my opinion, Anderson Cooper was a bit of a long shot for a daytime talk show to begin with; to me he never did seem like the daytime host type.
