Fear Not, The Must Watch New Year’s Eve Pairing Of Anderson Cooper And Kathy Griffin Is On

Despite rumors comedian Kathy Griffin might be banned by CNN from repeating her New Year’s Eve co-hosting gig with Anderson Cooper, the network confirmed today the often hilarious pair will be in Times Square on December 31.

“The most trusted name in news just got a whole lot more trusting,” said Griffin, who in previous years has dropped f-bombs live on the air. “I’m thrilled they’re letting me co-host…again.”

New Year’s Eve Live with Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin will once again combine the over-the-top Griffin with the makes-it-even-better reactions of Cooper, who said in a CNN release he may need to wear extra layers–perhaps boxers and briefs?

“Once again, I’m terrified to be co-hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve show with Kathy Griffin” said Cooper, “It’s often bitterly cold, and yet after being with her for a few minutes on live television, I find myself drenched in sweat.”

Threatening to either derail the humor–or intensify it–is the addition of new CNN co-hosts Kathleen Parker and Eliot Spitzer who will appear as part of a panel of guests.

Returning again this year are Gary Tuchman running the Midnight Run live in Central Park and John Zarella live in Key West.
