Anderson Cooper - Where did it all go wrong for Anderson Cooper?

Anderson Live, the daytime television show from Anderson Cooper, will not be renewed for a third season, according to the Los Angeles Times. Warner Bros executives began telling stations of their decision on Friday (October 26, 2012).

The CNN news personality - who recently came out as gay - began hosting the daytime show in 2011 (then titled Anderson), though it failed to generate solid numbers. A number of changes were swiftly put into place, including a new name and a live studio audience, though it's done little to change the fortunes of the show. In defence of Cooper, a crowd of new talk shows from the likes of Katie Couric, Steve Harvey, Jeff Probst and Ricki Lake haven't made things any easier. In its most recent week, Anderson Live pulled in just 1.45 million viewers, putting it well behind the likes of Dr Phil. "We are extremely proud of Anderson and the show that he and the entire production team have produced," said a Warner Bros. spokesperson, adding, "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. We will continue to deliver top-quality shows throughout next summer."

The show will wrap up after the summer of 2013, with Warner Bros set to roll out the likes of Bethenny, starring Bethenny Frankel, instead.
