No matter how fabulous your Friday and Saturday may be, many of us become inundated with an impending feeling of dread and anxiety by the time Sunday afternoon or early evening roll around.
Often referred to as the “Sunday scaries,” these unsettling emotions usually arise due to thoughts of all the pending tasks, deadlines, meetings, or difficult bosses we will have to deal with during the week ahead.
Overindulging in Sunday Funday or binging the latest HBO sensation are common remedies that help take our minds off the full horror of Monday morning. Well, now Anderson Cooper is adding his dreamy blue eyes to the mix of soothing tonics to keep the Sunday scaries at bay.
As if he wasn’t busy enough anchoring his daily CNN show Anderson Cooper 360°, being a correspondent on CBS’ long-running series 60 Minutes, hosting his All There Is podcast, and raising two children, the 55-year-old will now spearhead a new Sunday night newsmagazine show on CNN entitled The Whole Story with Anderson Cooper.
Cooper will host and executive produce the one-hour program that will feature investigative pieces, character-driven profiles, interviews, and deep-dives into essential stories from around the world.
CNN shared a glimpse of what viewers can expect by revealing some of the initial topics will include: the political and social issues presently affecting the city of San Francisco, a behind-the-scenes look at King Charles’ coronation, and the current controversy and vitriol surrounding transgender athletes.
No doubt Cooper’s handsome visage will help some of these tough stories go down a little easier as the weekend slips away.
Though we’re all for more Cooper on our screens, his new gig could pose to be a bit problematic as The Whole Story now stands to be in direct competition with 60 Minutes, which he’s been a part of since 2007.
While he’s been sharing duties on both networks for years, this is the first time he’ll be appearing on both CNN and CBS every week on Sunday evenings. The two shows will also vie for similar audiences and cover comparable topics. Drama!
The Sunday showdown has 60 Minutes at 7 p.m. on CBS, while The Whole Story will premiere on CNN at 8 p.m., beginning April 16.
But it looks like Cooper’s undeniable charm has worked its magic again, a source tells The Hollywood Reporter his new CNN show won’t impact his role at CBS. Everybody loves Coop!
Luckily, fans don’t have to wait until April to get more of Anderson Cooper ingested into their eyeballs as these curated Insta snaps are here to take the scaries away any day of the week:
Isn’t Cooper married? Where does “spouse time” fit into this vainglorious schedule?
Mr. Cooper is not married. He shares parenting duties with his ex, though.
Cooper’s never been married bichy, time to dust off that Google.
Well it’s no wonder, is it?
so proud that he’s part of my community.
Its called being over exposed, not double dipping.He’s an amazing journalist/ corespondent
but he clearly he’s in a clique of friends that is the NYC TV elite that loves the spotlight way more and obviously he can’t stop at turning down anything that keeps him on camera . Let’s not forget He also does a tour with Andy talking about their stupid stories of privilege too…
So yeah Anderson you are very much way over exposed .
So to be a bit more clear. You are not a fan of Anderson Cooper? Just wanted to ask your comment wasn’t to clear.
I just know that with out Anderson the queer community wouldn’t be as visible. Plus if you can do the work, then do it. He seems to balance his life quite nicely.
And he turned you down on Grindr.
If it’s clarity from commenters you want, you are in the wrong place.
Look who’s talking about being over exposed. Please.
Anderson is cool. Smart. And the Son Of Gloria.
CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Kuralt, now that show could melt your stress away, miss him dearly.
Cooper betrayed Kathy Griffin when she needed a friend; shame on him; and besides that his association with that Bravo character, yuck! I guess being forever that pasty white may be punishment enough, but I still haven’t forgiven him, and his publicist’s incessant collection of feel good pieces reproduced here on Queerty, well….hell in a handbasket.
I hear ya. I miss the days of Kathy Griffin and Anderson teaming up. It was so much more fun and entertaining than the current dynamic between Anderson and man-child Andy Cohen. Still mourning the pre-Trump years.
Imagine how dramatically upset hysterical Fahd would be if if Fahd demeaned a black person because of their skin color!
I do agree with all of his sentiment; EXCEPT, the racism. Who would think that a minority would reflect what they find most repugnant? Look in the mirror Fahd: Bigots come in all colors.
@Ronbo When referring to me as “hysterical” did you mean “hysterical” in the sense of very funny or in the misogynistic sense of unreasonably upset the way a woman would be?
Ronbo = Russian troll who has not been paid a single ruble since the war of aggression against Ukraine began – they need the money for ammo. (He calls it a “special military operation”, but nevertheless wishes he didn’t have to go without pay.)
