Anderson Cooper, with a Live Studio Audience

For the next two Thursdays, Anderson Cooper will host AC360 in front of a live studio audience. The site Starflow Entertainment, which publicizes live studio audience tapings of programs, has the listing below:

Last month, Cindy Adams hinted that CNN was adding “a nightly talk show for Anderson Cooper…” These shows appear to be what Adams was referring to.

It is new territory for Cooper — except for when he fills in for Regis Philbin — but would be a return to live studio audience programming for CNN. “Talkback Live” aired from the atrium of the CNN Center in Atlanta from 1994 to 2003. These AC360 special productions are similar to test shows we’ve been writing about recently. Earlier this week we reported that CNN produces 10-12 test shows a year to see what sticks.

CNN tells TVNewser there is no air date yet for the AC360 specials.
