Anderson Cooper’s show cancelled
Anderson Live has been cancelled. It was only in its second year of production, but low ratings has meant it won’t be returning next year. Cooper said in a statement: “I am very proud of the work that our terrific staff has put into launching and sustaining our show for two seasons, I am grateful to Telepictures for giving me the opportunity, and I am indebted to the audience, who have responded so positively. I look forward to doing more great shows this season, and I’m sorry we won’t be continuing, but I have truly enjoyed it.”

    That’s such a shame about Anderson’s show. I really enjoyed the first season, hopefully TVNZ will hurry up and start airing the second.
