CNN’s Anderson Cooper celebrates his 47th birthday, and some CNNers used the occasion to have some fun at his expense.
For those who are yet to check out Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin on CNN during New Year’s Day here is a glimpse of what you are missing.
Nothing is off limits:
Just a small part of the amazing, but very non-traditional CNN NYE 2012 coverage.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper brings his passionate voice and personal perspective to a topical daily talk show when Anderson premieres in January on TV2.
Covering social issues, trends and events, pop culture and celebrity, human interest stories and populist news, Cooper taps into his compassion and fascination with the human condition to share compelling and provocative personal stories and tackle the issues that stir debate, while bringing his humorous take on what is important for the daytime audience.
Featuring audience participation, both in-studio and with home viewers, the show creates a daily destination for generations of women looking to be informed. In this first week, guests will include the parents and boyfriend of Amy Winehouse, Daniel Radcliffe, Kathy Griffin and Sarah Jessica Parker, as well as taking a look at 24-year-old girls who were abandoned at birth.

Being a lover of puns, this whole segment is amazing.
Cooper finally gives in to the giggles and it turns in to live TV news gold:
CNN has unveiled a new evening line-up for its US domestic news channel.
Beginning August 8, Anderson Cooper’s AC360 will broadcast from 8pm. Two hours earlier than its current time slot. This will put the show head to head with The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News.
CNN will also premiere a new general news program with Erin Burnett, which will air at 7pm Eastern time.
Piers Morgan Tonight will continue to air at 9pm and 12am .
John King USA will kick off the evening at 6pm. The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer will continue as a two-hour daily program, airing in a new timeslot of 4-6pm. CNN Newsroom will now air from 9am-4pm. The full programming schedule is provided below.
“The new line-up showcases anchors who are experienced reporters in covering stories that span the globe,” said Jautz. “We created a nightly schedule that brings together the best of CNN’s journalism on a wide range of topics from politics and the economy to global and world events, as well the best newsmaker and celebrity interviews. This line-up ensures viewers access to the best of what CNN has to offer whenever they tune in at night.”
“I’m looking forward to the new time slot and am excited to share AC360 with a new audience at 8pm, while still connecting with my regular viewers at 10pm,” said Cooper.
