Anderson’s self-titled show won’t return for a third season. Are you bummed?

Anderson Cooper may be a major force in nighttime news with CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, but his strength apparently doesn’t translate as well to daytime. His talk show, Anderson, has officially been canceled after two seasons, according to a new report from The New York Times.

“I am very proud of the work that our terrific staff has put into launching and sustaining our show for two seasons,” Anderson said in a statement. “I am also grateful to Telepictures for giving me the opportunity, and indebted to viewers, who have responded so positively.”

He continued: “I look forward to doing more great shows this season, and though I’m sorry we won’t be continuing, I have truly enjoyed it.”

The Warner Bros. syndication unit responsible for Anderson also issued a statement:

“We are extremely proud of Anderson and the show that he and the entire production team have produced. 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.”

Not a big fan of daytime talk but of the choices available, his show was my favorite. He’s always himself and down to earth. So many of the others (the top rated ones) are arrogant, phoney baloney and full of themselves. If I watch daytime talk, would much rather watch Anderson than Oprah, Phil, Ellen, Barbara, Whoopi, Joy, etc.
