Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.

To both Anderson & Kathy: Either because it was so great, or because you'd like a "re-do"; if you could go back in your own life and relive a year, what year would it be and why?
Note to Kathy: I saw your last special on cable, fantastic! Heard you mentioned being introduced to Grindr, got one even better for ya............."Scruff". You can post pics, and is worldwide, and the boys are hotter; ask Anderson. ;+)
I would love to watch you bring in the new year, but I can't stand Kathy Griffin. If I had to sit through hours of her voice, I think I would need to jump off the nearest bridge. Sorry you have to co-host with her again. I would prefer to watch anyone else on the planet but her. She is not a classy gal, with a trash mouth and a voice that sends shards of glass though my soul. Good luck with that.
A group of us are very disappointed to hear that Anderson Cooper will be hosting NYE with Kathy Griffin again. We love Anderson but you can keep Kathy. Looks like we turn to another show for NYE once again.
