Snuggie, Jealousy, and a Weed Limousine Invite: CNN’s Anderson Cooper Birthday Tribute

Anderson BirthdayJudging by last night’s on-air tribute for Anderson Cooper‘s 47th birthday, one can only wonder what CNN will do in a few years for the big 5-0.

Just a few seconds into Cooper delivering a typical “Ridiculist” segment, Wolf Blitzer popped up on screen, beginning a video montage of CNN personalities wishing Cooper a happy birthday.

Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin pointed out the lack of buzz around his birthday two weeks ago. “Did I get an on-air tribute from Wolf Blitzer? I don’t think so…what is the big deal, is this kindergarten? Everyone has a birthday.”

Randi Kaye, whose reporting for “AC360″ left her slightly high earlier this year, had an interesting gift idea. “I heard about these really cool limo tours in Denver, in Colorado. Really cool, if you know what I mean,” Kaye said, referencing a limousine ride she took with “ganjapreneurs” smoking marijuana.

And John Berman donned his “AC360″ snuggie. “When you fill in for Anderson, they actually give you one of these AC360 snuggies. My understanding is he’s worn every one of them, so before you get it, Anderson has to wear it…I can smell him in it.”

The star-studded tribute after the jump.

The Top Cable News Shows in May Were…

Fox News had the top 14 programs in total viewers and the top eight programs in the key A25-54 demographic in May 2014. As usual, “The O’Reilly Factor” was the number one program in cable news in both total and demo viewers, averaging 2,136,000 total viewers and 308,000 demo viewers. “The Kelly File” was second in total viewers, with 2,337,000, followed by “The Five,”  “Special Report with Bret Baier” and “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.” In the demo, “The Five” was second, Kelly’s program was third and Baier’s program was fourth.

CNBC was the only network other than Fox News to have a show in the top ten among the A25-54 demo: “Shark Tank,” which averaged 210,000 A25-54 viewers, placed ninth overall. “Shark Tank” also led CNBC in total viewers, averaging 442,000 viewers and placing 23rd overall.

MSNBC’s highest-rated show was “The Rachel Maddow Show,” which placed 14th overall in total viewers and 11th overall in the demo. Maddow’s program averaged 738,000 total viewers and 176,000 demo viewers.

Anderson Cooper 360″ was the top CNN program in total viewers and the demo, placing 21st and 19th, respectively. The show averaged 452,000 total viewers and 145,000 A25-54 viewers for the month.

“Forensic Files” led HLN in both ratings measurements, placing 38th in total viewers and 20th in the demo with 323,000 and 142,000 viewers, respectively.

The top-rated show in total viewers on Fox Business was “Imus in the Morning,” which ranked 89th overall. “Stossel” led the way in the demo, ranking 87th.

May 2014 Ratings: CNN Falls to #3 in Total Day Viewers, Fourth in Total Day Demo

Without major breaking news, CNN continued to struggle in the month of May 2014, falling to third place in total day viewers and primetime A25-54 demo viewers and falling to fourth place in the daytime demo. The network remained in third place in primetime viewers. The last time CNN finished fourth in the daytime demo was January, before its ratings surge covering missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

The ratings for May 2014 (Nielsen Live + Same Day data):

  • Primetime (Mon-Sun): 400,000 Total Viewers / 141,000 A25-54
  • Total Day (Mon-Sun): 309,000 Total Viewers / 93,000 A25-54

Compared to the same month last year, CNN is down double digits across the board: -33% in total viewers and -42% in the demo in total day and -39% and -37%, respectively, in primetime.

In primetime, “Anderson Cooper 360″ was down -42% in total viewers and -43% in the A25-54 demographic compared to May 2013. His show ranked #2 in the demo. The 9pmET and 10pmET hours lost over half their total audiences: down -52% and -55% in viewers, respectively.

It should be noted that last May, those hours featured a fixed lineup of “Piers Morgan Live” and “AC360″ reruns, where as this month, there’s been a rotation of “CNN Tonight,” “CNN Special Report” and original series in those timeslots as part of the network’s primetime reshuffling.

CNN’s morning show “New Day” fell back to third place in both total and demo viewers. And on Sundays, “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” continued to see success: the first three new episodes of the season ranked #1 at 9pmET Sunday in total and demo viewers.

What Anderson Cooper and Megyn Kelly Left Out of Their Isla Vista Killing Spree Reporting

Kelly Cooper

Covering Friday’s Isla Vista killing spree last night, Anderson Cooper and Megyn Kelly chose not to mention alleged killer Elliot Rodger‘s name, air his photo, or play the YouTube video he made shortly before killing seven, including himself.

“I respect the position that you’ve taken on the coverage of these events,” Richard Martinez, father of one of the victims, 20-year-old Christopher Martinez, said to Cooper.

“As you know, I don’t believe in saying the person’s name, or showing the person’s picture who committed these things,” Cooper said. “I think history should not remember that person’s name, but should remember the name of your son, and all the others who lost their lives.”

Martinez added there’s another important reason not to report perpetrators’ names: would-be shooters thinking of committing a crime might be watching Cooper, and shouldn’t see other shooters rewarded with on-air name recognition from the media. “I agree,” Cooper said.

Later in the show, Cooper spoke with “Columbine” author Dave Cullen about not reporting shooters’ names. “There’s almost a glorification, and other people are watching,” Cooper said.

Over on “The Kelly File,” Megyn Kelly stuck to her show’s policy: “We are not naming this shooter, nor will we show you his picture or his videos.” Kelly then tossed to Trace Gallagher, who reported on the investigation into the stabbing and shooting spree without mentioning Rodger’s name, showing his picture, or airing his YouTube video (which has been removed from the site).

Magic Johnson: Donald Sterling Asked Me for Joint Interview With Barbara Walters

Magic Johnson revealed that Donald Sterling asked him to do a joint interview with Barbara Walters.

“He wanted me to go on Barbara Walters with him and try to save him, and his reputation,” Johnson told TMZ, adding he declined the invitation, and told Sterling that he needed to apologize, not only to him, but all minorities. Walters interviewed Sterling’s mistress V. Stiviano Friday, May 2, and Sterling’s wife, Shelly, on Sunday.

Anderson Cooper follows up his exclusive with Donald Sterling with an interview with Johnson tonight on “AC360.” The Clippers’ owner suggested Johnson doesn’t do enough for minorities and is a poor role model. Johnson fires back, saying, “He’s a man who’s upset and he’s reaching. He’s trying to find something that he can grab on to help him save his team. And it’s not going to happen.”

Donald Sterling Apologizes, Tells Anderson Cooper: ‘You’re More of a Racist Than I Am’

Cooper SterlingBeing accused of being a racist elicits a strong response from most people, but Anderson Cooper had two words last night.

“How so?” Cooper responded to embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling during their exclusive interview after Sterling said, “I think you’re more of a racist than I am.”

“I’m not a racist, I’ve never been a racist, and I’ll never be a racist,” Sterling emphatically told Cooper, tearfully apologizing for comments he made to his girlfriend V. Stiviano on a leaked audio tape. After apologizing, Sterling made more comments about former NBA star Magic Johnson.

“He acts so holy, he made love to every girl in every city in America, and he had AIDS…” Sterling said about Johnson, later adding Johnson hasn’t done enough for minorities. Cooper corrected Sterling, noting Johnson has HIV, not AIDS.

Before the interview aired last night, Cooper spoke with “New Day” Monday morning, answering Chris Cuomo‘s question on the suggestion Sterling has the early symptoms of dementia. “He’s fully aware of what he’s saying…he seems totally competent,” Cooper said.

Both videos after the jump.
