Blood-Thirsty Anderson Cooper See’s Ratings Increase Following Teen TragedyAuthor: Jon Martin | Tuesday, October 4th, 2011 |
Gay soccer Mom Anderson Cooper has been down in the dumps recently, no, it’s not because his daytime talk show Anderson isn’t doing that well, it’s actually doing really well. Anderson has been seriously bummed lately because encouragement from Cooper and his shows producers might have put a teen in the hospital. Recently it was revealed that a teen skateboarder that was scheduled to be on Cooper’s show was injured and had gone in to a coma. It was also revealed that the accident might have occurred after Cooper and producers encouraged the teen to perform and film dangerous acts.
There is a silver lining in this story though, if reports from hollywoodreporter are to be believed . It turns out even involuntary eternal sleep can’t bring down the Anderson Cooper behemoth because even amid this terrible tragedy, Cooper’s ratings have improved. Anderson had a 1.4 national rating for week two of his television show (after Nielsen recalculated the rating for the first week), which made it the second biggest opening for a new talk show since Rachel Ray in 2006. Only Dr. Oz had a higher debut when he launched in 2009.
Perhaps a dose of brutal reality is what increased the ratings, because until now Anderson was looking like a pretty big stinker. Whether he’s discussing Gerard Depardu pissing on a plane, giggling like a british school-girl, or getting spray-tanned with Snooki, it seems like he cares less and less about the “serious journalism” moniker. Maybe there isn’t such a thing anymore, pershaps the allure of hollywood and mainstream popularity is just too much to chance giving up. Shouldn’t Anderson Cooper be down at the Occupy Wall St being punched in the face? What? Anderson is too good to get punched in the face here in America? He only goes to foreign protests? Hipster.
