CNN Threatens Daily Show Featuring Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper

They shot a pilot. I assume the "daily" part of it. I suppose they could do it weekly, like a bon-bon at the end of the week.

Either way, it promises to faithfully capture the zeitgeist of Obama's America: it will be awful.

In related news, NBC reached out to Anderson Cooper to see if he'd be interested in replacing dead-man-walking Matt Lauer on the Today show. At this point, Lauer's fate is about as mysterious as the guy on Columbo who tells Patrick McGoohan "I'm going to keep blackmailing you for every penny you have and there's not a damned thing you can do about it. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to perform a minor but dangerous DIY electrical-repair operation in my isolated mountain cabin."

And then the camera goes to Patrick McGoohan, whose eyes narrow in that "Hmmmm..." kind of way.

"And you've told no one else about this blackmail information,
or about your relationship with me?
Absolutely no one else, you say?"

Lauer, paid $25 million a year to deliver third-place ratings, seems to be in a negative-leak war with his employer. For example, Matt Lauer is whining about being poorly used by NBC.

According to RadarOnline.com: 'Morale just couldn’t get any lower among the cast and crew of Today. Matt feels that he was set up by producers to fail by participating in the interview with Ziegler.

Ziegler did a documentary about Sandusky. I'd explain this situation further but I don't really care. The point is, someone in Lauer's camp is claiming NBC set him up to fail. He misspelled "DNA." Which you would think would be an easy one. It's spelled the way it sounds.
