    The Supreme SilverFox is losing his shirt....and not in a good way.

    His show Anderson Cooper 360 is falling behind reruns of Keith Obermann's show on MSNBC. That is NOT good.

    The question is.....will his new body help his show? Or is he distracted...spending too much time in the gym?

    Well I am really sort of joking...but I do hope his show picks up. I would be MISERABLE if I couldn't spend an hour with him each night. icon_exclaim.gif

    New body? He's always been fairly well put together, he just doesn't show it on his news show.

    The content of AC360 has been fairly boring lately, which is more than likely why his ratings have dropped.

    I've never understood his appeal. His voice is whiny and he squints. Why he has so many gay men in a lather is beyond me.

    I've met him a few times. He used to hang out at an Upper West Side gay bar in Manhattan. He was as boring and 'bleh' then as he is today. I never found his show to be informative or entertaining.

    Anderson's ratings suck because his show sucks. He doesn't think independently - the true teleprompter king of cable news. He's about as hard hitting as a one-armed girl on a peewee wiffle ball team.

    Keith and Rachel are far more entertaining and bring more to the table, but Mr. Cooper has nothing to worry about. He has plenty of cash and enough influence to continue down this track for years.

    This isn't news. He has an interesting history of dating very young guys and asking them to move in with him. He owns a fabulous home in Connecticut that his mommy bought ... err, that he purchased for himself. It leaves an impression, for sure. Who can blame him? If you have it, flaunt it.

    I'd happily follow that well trodden path to his door.

    I absolutely love and adore his AC's show. I think its the format that kind of sucks actually because I have often thought about it myself actually. When they moved him over to his current time slot they shifted him out of prime time which no duh he would be falling in the ratings. They kept the same format and look of Aaron Browns' "News Night" show which I have to admit I didn't like all that much. Campbell Brown's show I can't stand for the life of me. I think if they shift AC back to his original slot and give it a new look or take it back to the old Red & Black look he would be rocking. Honestly, NO ONE does a better job and I think people like Keith because of the humor he brings to his show plus the time slot! even if they are reruns. Just a few ideas.

    Compared to Olbermann and Rachel, his show is rather dry.

    And for that matter, Keith Olbermann won me over with his awesome special comment about gay marriage: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/27650743/. that shyt made me cry... for real.

    The biggest thing he has going for him is his looks. But when I want news, I am less interested in looking at a studly man. I can go look at porn- or certain sports even for that matter- if I want that.

    What's far scarier to me is that Fox is #1.

    Note from the OP:

    Yes you know I love Keith and Rachel myself, but what is frightening is that Keith's RERUNS are beating Anderson's live editions. Keith's show runs at 8, and then is rerun at 10...against Anderson. That is pretty bad icon_sad.gif

    I couldn't agree more. Plus, I just don't think he's handsome at all. In fact, I find him downright ugly. But to each their own. As silver foxes go, the OP is WAY ahead of Anderson Cooper on the attractiveness scale. Just my opinion. Again, to each their own. Taste is subjective. I just seem to be in the minority on the whole AC thing and I just don't get it.

    He's always been to smarmy and holier than thou for me. I'd actually rather watch Bill O'Reilly bloviate than sit through AC360.

    And that show name...AC360? Did Jennifer Lopez think of that?

    CNN's entire evening line up is blah. They need to ditch Larry King and Anderson Cooper. They need to steal Maddow with some big $$ and give Soledad O'Brien a show. She is top notch.

    AC isn't hot to me.. not at all.. but he's a great journalist and hope he'll get a new show. I understand CNN's ratings overall slipped, even below that of "CNN Headline News". Kind of surprised about that, but glad MSNBC is doing well. Of course the fact FOX is top rated is pretty sad.

    Fox being top rated shouldn't surprise any one though. Watching Fox is like watching Access Hollywood or Entertainment Tonight. Stylistically there's little difference.

    I don't watch FOX other than flinging a tomato at the screen if one was available. My only gripe about the YMCA, they always have the TVs pointed to FOX and Bill the kook is usually on when I'm leaving the gym.
    I usually exit the locker room quickly when he's on.

    wow... seriously? did anyone not see his show when it first came out? that format was bad ass... the way it is now blows.. i can admit that much. I love his reporting. Deep, personal, I mean the way he got after these people after Katrina for real.... I saw that shit first hand helping the NOLA refugees coming to SA seeing them coming off the buses and seeing bodies being pulled off because some of them died on the way to SA. HORRIBLE! AC has my vote any day of the week... he might be the only older guy Id go for but yeah... his brains, his style, his reporting... his personal edge make it all for me.
