Anderson Cooper Gets Daytime Talk Show

Can't get enough of Anderson Cooper? Then you're going to be super psyched about this news.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Anderson is launching a syndicated daytime talk show.

He made a deal with Telepictures Productions and Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution for a program that will be pitched to stations in the next couple of weeks targeted to launch in fall 2011. He will also serve as an executive producer.

"Over the course of the past few years, I've had the opportunity to work on a number of daytime programs," said Anderson Cooper.

"It's fun and interesting to work in daytime television. The format is unique and you can really go in-depth on a wide range of fascinating and compelling stories. With this new program I hope to relay important information and relate to people and the audience in a completely different way. It's an exciting opportunity to show another side of myself and create something worthwhile and special in daytime."

So what's going to happen with his CNN show "360"? Absolutely nothing. "I am pleased that Anderson Cooper has extended his relationship with CNN and will be with us for years to come," said CNN Worldwide president Jim Walton in a statement Thursday morning.

"I am also pleased to congratulate Anderson on his new relationship with Telepictures. We think it will be good for Anderson, good for CNN and good for Time Warner."

Anything with Anderson Cooper should be a hit. Will you tune in for his daytime talk show?
