Tonight at 11pmET on CNN, for the Anderson Cooper 360 special highlighting this year’s Time 100 list.
“These people are really good friends. They know a lot about each other on levels that reporter may not know about,” AC 360 EP David Doss tells TVNewser. “It’s really like we’re all approved to eavesdrop on these cool conversations.”
Besides the pre-taped conversations, Cooper will contribute to the special as well. “Anderson is editorially involved with quite a lot. Two of the segments are his own,” says Doss.
Working with Time magazine, of course, keeps the special in the Time Warner family. “It would be fair to say the relationship with Time and Rick Stengel and 360 and CNN is really a great relationship,” says Doss. “We talk a lot about projects and editorially about things on the print and broadcast and digital side. It’s really fantastic.”
The special is simulcast on CNNI tonight at 11pmET, and re-airs Saturday and Sunday at 8pm and 11pmET on CNN.
It’s going to be a ratings battle tonight at 9pmET, as FNC and CNN each have unique line-ups.
Alan Colmes makes his first return appearance to the 9pmET hour, and he’ll be bringing his former co-host, Sean Hannity, an exclusive interview — with Bill Ayers. The interview took place in FNC’s Chicago bureau. “It’s a colossal mistake,” says Ayers of President Barack Obama‘s decision to send 17,000 troops to Afghanistan. “And, you know, we’ve seen this happen before, Alan. We’ve seen a hopeful presidency, Lyndon Johnson‘s presidency, burn up in the furnace of war.”
On CNN, Larry King Live will feature four very different segments. The show kicks off with a George Clooney interview (fresh off his meeting with VP Joe Biden at the White House). The show closes with the first TV interview from Vicki Iseman, who recently dropped her lawsuit against the New York Times. In between, King has an
exclusive interview with T. Boone Pickens and John Podesta, and a panel discussion featuring Dee Dee Myers, Ari Fleischer and Bob Woodward.
Rachel Maddow is out with the flu on MSNBC — Alison Stewart will be filling in.
> Update: Cleve Jones, a friend of Harvey Milk‘s (and portrayed by Emile Hirsch in the movie), will be on the Rachel Maddow show to discuss Proposition 8 and Sean Penn‘s speech last night. Jones also created the AIDS Memorial Quilt.
…but T. Boone Pickens is an equal opportunity business news viewer.
In September 2007, a month before Fox Business Network launched, Pickens gave a Q&A for the CNBC promo campaign “I am CNBC.” However in a Business Jet Traveler cover story this month, Pickens can be seen watching FBN on his private jet. As he says in the profile, he likes watching both networks at once: “I’ve put two large television screens up by my seat in the front so I can always watch the CNBC and Fox Business cable channels.”
Rose was announced as a contributor to the long-running CBS show in January, and he previously was a correspondent on 60 Minutes II from 1999-2005. According to the release, he will continue to appear “from time to time.”
A clip from the interview is below, which includes an awkward meeting of Pickens and Sen. John Kerry at the DNC (Pickens funded the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth campaign in ’04):
