‘Anderson’ Moving to Less Convenient Studio In Season Two

The syndicated talk show “Anderson,” hosted by CNN’s Anderson Cooper, will be moving to a smaller–and slightly less convenient–studio in its second season, according to The program had been originating from the Allen Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center, which despite its name is actually located inside the Time Warner Center, just a few floors down from CNN’s New York newsroom.

In the Fall the program will tape at the CBS Broadcast Center, a few blocks west of Time Warner Center on 57th street. It will take over a studio currently occupied by “The Nate Berkus Show,” which will not be coming back.

“At CBS, we will have a dedicated studio that will allow us to tape on a daily basis and turn around the shows the next day or to go live when warranted giving the show the sense of urgency to be appointment television,” EP Terence Noonan told’s Nellie Andreeva.

The problem with The Allen Room is that while it had dramatic views of the city, it was often being used for other events, including concerts and parties. This meant that Cooper’s team wasn’t always able to tape when they wanted to. While the CBS Broadcast Center is a farther walk for Cooper, he is no stranger to the building. As a correspondent for “60 Minutes,” Cooper has an office across the street from the broadcast center.
