Anderson Cooper’s New Daytime Talk Show Producers Not Even Pretending They Aren’t Marketing Him to Women

You’re still going to have to wait nearly a year, but Anderson Cooper‘s daytime talk show deal is definitely a go! Warner Bros. has signed syndication agreements in all the hot markets, like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Boston — you know, the parts of America that falsely give the impression their entire states are bastions of liberalism and pro-gayness. (Well, Boston/Massachusetts might be the exception.) According to a release, “Like his predecessors Oprah Winfrey and Phil Donahue, Anderson Cooper will create a daily destination for multiple generations of women looking to be informed and entertained, gain perspective, have a voice and stay connected to each other and the world around them.” Whatever. If you’re lucky, he’ll get drunk, so that’s something to watch for.
