Talk-show Tango Jan. 2-6: Angelina Jolie and cast of In the Land of Blood and Honey join Anderson Cooper

In television on 01/02/2012 at 11:35 am

Who am I to cast stones, but I will say there are a disappointing number of repeats this week, as well as altogether blank guest lists on talk-show pages. I think somebody’s New Year’s Eve hangover cures were found a bit wanting. I’ll watch for updates but you know how I am, all short-attention-span and everything. But, it could happen. (Note to doubters: I have updated. There, it’s a new year.)

Score of the week? Anderson Cooper’s show hosts Angelina Jolie and the cast from her new film In the Land of Blood and Honey about love and other things during the Bosnian War. Here’s the trailer.
