Which CNN Anchor Is Andy Cohen’s Favorite?

Andy Cohen will appear on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” tomorrow, and the Bravo executive vice president reveals in the interview he is a big fan of “State of the Union” anchor Candy Crowley.

Before the interview was taped, a CNN producer who knew Cohen was a fan of Crowley’s presented him with a signed bookmark in the shape of the CNN chief political correspondent (pictured, if you look very closely, in Cohen’s Bravo Clubhouse).

“Here’s my book, Most Talkative, and my little bookmark is Candy Crowley, who I love,” Cohen told host Howard Kurtz. “She wrote: ‘To Andy, from a not so real housewife, Candy Crowley.’ So she kind of stands halfway in my book.”

A Crush, and a ‘Shotski,’ For Dan Rather

Former “CBS Evening News” anchor Dan Rather continues to make the rounds to promote his new book Rather Outspoken. Last night he appeared on CNN’s “Erin Burnett Outfront,” where Burnett revealed that she had a crush on the newsman growing up, and that she would kiss the TV set at the end of the “CBS Evening News.” Rather was flattered:

Later that evening, Rather appeared on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” hosted by former CBS News staffer Andy Cohen. Rather, Cohen and singer John Mayer did a”shotski” of bourbon off of a ski (see photo below), and then Rather and Cohen reminisced about their time at CBS News. Cohen recalled that the one story he got to do with rather was a profile of an outspoken radio host named Don Imus:

Anderson Cooper is in Demand

CNN’s Anderson Cooper continues to be a hot topic in the media this week. First the New York Times cited a CBS News executive as being a big fan, and now Kelly Ripa says that he was her favorite guest co-host on “Live with Kelly.”In addition, on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” last night, Cooper overwhelmingly won a very special viewer poll ( see right). Sorry Piers and Wolf, maybe next time.

The CNN anchor hosted a book party for WWHL host Andy Cohen over the weekend. Attendees included “CBS This Morning” host Gayle King and NBC’s Harry Smith.

Cooper has his own daytime talk show now, so he won’t be replacing Regis Philbin, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t a connection between him and Ripa. Watch Ripa explain, after the jump.

A Party Tonight, Before the Today Celebration

The party’s still going at the Edison Ballroom in Times Square as the “Today” show celebrates its 60th anniversary. The morning milestone began with a welcome from “Today” frontman Matt Lauer before singer Pit Bull took the stage.

Fourth hour hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford were early arrivals, with Kotb (below) front and center during Pit Bull’s set. We spotted NBC News president Steve Capus and “Today” EP Jim Bell working the room, as longtime EP and, later NBCU president Jeff Zucker was deep in conversation with former “Today” anchor Meredith Vieira.

“Today” senior broadcast producer Don Nash, who’s been with the show more than a third of its life — 23 years — tells TVNewser tomorrow’s anniversary program is not to be missed. All former living on air talent — save for Joe Garagiola and Gene Shalit who aren’t able to make it — will be a part of the show. And we spotted many of them at the party tonight, including Tom Brokaw, Katie Couric, (above) Barbara Walters, John Palmer and Hugh Downs.

NBC spared no expense flying in correspondents from other NBC bureaus including Andrea Mitchell, Kerry Sanders, Kevin Tibbles, Janet Shamlian and Luke Russert.

Brian Williams stopped in after “Nightly News.” And we chatted with “Today” anchors Savannah Guthrie, Jenna Wolfe and Amy Robach, here with husband Andrew Shue, and said hello to Willard Scott on our way out. Other “Today” regulars celebrating  included Jill Rappaport, Martha Stewart, the Scotto family and Bobby Flay. We chatted with Andy Cohen (mostly about NeNe Leakes) who later tonight will be interviewing Rosie O’Donnell on his Bravo show, “Watch What Happens Live.”

Rounding out the crowd: Willie Geist, Jeff Rossen, Martin Bashir, Carl Quintanilla, Andrew Ross Sorkin, Tyler Mathisen, MSNBC president Phil Griffin and CNBC president Mark Hoffman and many more I may have missed. Because, as I said, the party is still going. Then, tomorrow at 7am, “Today” takes the party nationwide.

Andy Cohen, Former CBS Morning Producer, Returns As Guest

You may know him best as the guy behind the Real Housewives or as host of his own nightly show on Bravo. But did you know Andy Cohen used to work as a network morning show producer? Okay, well maybe you did.

Anyway, Cohen was part of Day 4 of the new “CBS This Morning” this morning to talk pop culture stuff, but he also got in a word about his time at CBS.

“I spent a lot of time at CBS in the morning. I spent most of the ’90s on the morning show on CBS,” said Cohen, showing a picture of himself, “There I am actually in my cubicle at CBS. That had to be in ’92. I had a ponytail. Yeah. that’s me.”

Natalie Morales to co-host Miss Universe Pageant

The “Today” show’s Natalie Morales will once again co-host the 2011 Miss Universe Pageant, this year live from São Paulo, Brazil. NBC will broadcast the event Monday, Sept. 12 with a live Spanish simulcast on Telemundo. Bravo’s Andy Cohen will co-host.

Last year, Morales co-hosted the Donald Trump-owned pageant alongside Bret Michaels. When everyone was talking about Bret Michaels.

Morales, whose mother is Brazilian, spent the first 18 years living abroad as an Air Force brat, including time in Brazil.
