Anderson Cooper's daytime talk show won't get a third season


LOS ANGELES — “Anderson Live,” the daytime talker from CNN news personality Anderson Cooper, won’t be getting a third season.

Cooper joined the daytime fray in 2011, with then-titled “Anderson.” After the show failed to generate solid numbers, a number of changes took place to usher in the second season: a new show title, a live format, a studio audience, revolving guest co-hosts and a new location for the studio.

But the alterations did little to boost the show’s prospects. Its most recent week averaged just 1.45 million viewers — putting it behind daytime heavyweights such as “Dr. Phil” and even newbies “Katie” and “Steve Harvey.”

“Anderson Live” will wrap after the summer of 2013.
