Warner Bros. is pulling the plug on Anderson Live, the daily talk show hosted by Anderson Cooper, after two seasons.
Anderson Live, the Telepictures-produced syndicated talk show with Anderson Cooper, is not returning for a third season, distributor Warner Bros. confirms.
“We are extremely proud of Anderson and the show that he and the entire production team have produced,” said a Warner Bros. spokesperson in a statement. “While we made significant changes to the format, set and produced it live in its second season, the series will not be coming back for a third season in a marketplace that has become increasingly difficult to break through.”
Anderson debuted in fall 2011 to lackluster ratings that have continued to dip. The show had a 1.1 household rating the week ending Oct. 14, down 15% from last year. This season, Telepictures renamed and retooled the show by going live and featuring daily guest co-hosts like Kristin Chenoweth.
“I am very proud of the work that our terrific team has put into launching and sustaining our show for two seasons,” Cooper said in a statement.
Warner Bros. is out in the market selling Bethenny, a Telepictures talk show that has already been cleared on Fox TV Stations for 2013.
