Talk-show Tango June 6-10: Anderson Cooper stakes a claim for Sept. 12, Jon Cryer guests on Letterman

In television on 06/05/2011 at 10:42 pm

Well well well. The Oprah Winfrey Show’s corpse is barely cooled and Anderson Cooper announces he’s breaking into daytime TV. Anderson will launch on Sept. 12 and will be carried by CTV. And if you’re the tweeting type, you can follow his new Twitter account @anderson where he is just the nicest tweeter ever (like it could be any other way), and he’s invited us all to tapings of his show in NYC.

Highlights from shows that are currently on the air? How about Jon Cryer, who will solder on in Two and a Half Men without Charlie Sheen? He will spill his guts (not) on Wednesday on the Late Show with David Letterman.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled guest lists for talk shows currently in session or, hello Oprah!, in repeats. And a note to Marilyn Dennis Show fans: I’m going to stop listings guests since it’s more topics than celebrities. Lemme know if you disagree. We aim to please.
