Kay Jones, a producer on CNN's Anderson Cooper's "AC360," recently blogged on the show's website that she "deserve[s] the month of May off." Well, she might as well take it because Cooper's fan base is doing just that already.
Cooper's ratings have been in a sharp decline all year, and so far the month of May is no exception. According to Nielsen, the audience for the 10-11 p.m. hour of his show so far this month is 933,000 viewers. This is the first time he's fallen below the one-million mark since the dog days of last August. Anderson is losing almost 20% of his lead-in from Larry King and is in danger of being passed in the ratings by MSNBC's 10 p.m. repeat of "Countdown with Keith Olbermann." Since the start of 2009, Cooper has lost one-third of his audience.
CNN has invested heavily into marketing Cooper as the face of the network. The hype has never really translated into commercial success,

And most of his viewers are the captive audience at airports and other such places where the sets just run CNN.
Beavis and Butthead got cancelled too.
The peons in Flyover Country are not as easily fooled as super-gay Anderson Cooper and CNN believes.
Since the Coronation of the Obamination, no one can stomach the endless boring and deceitful CNN propaganda.
Of all the leftist nitwits talking about tea-bagging, it least we can know for sure that Anderson Cooper has experienced the true meaning of the term.
My vision of Hell, or at least Purgatory, is waiting forever for my delayed flight, unable to escape the horrific torture of loud CNN monitors all over the freeking airport.
He’s probably losing the Larry King lead-in because the audience thinks of him as their gay grandson. “He’s such a nice boy, but what a shame ...”
Welcome to my office coffee room.
I should sue my company for giving me stupidity poisoning everytime I need a cup.
Sounds like a "Twilight Zone" take-off on Jean-Paul Sartre's "No Exit". It starred John Astin and a bunch of people in a waiting room yakking away. That's what I think of when I fly.
Any corporate owned bar usually runs CNN rather than FOX, but go to a privately owned bar, and there is a strong chance you can find FOX.
Reporting this in the LA Times is certainly a classic example of the pot calling the kettle black.
LOL hmmm I wonder if Anderson Cooper is going to be ignoring Tea Parties 2.
What’s an “Anderson Cooper”?
Any bar that I would consider hanging out in would have a sporting event on between 10 & 11. In any case, I find Greta to be almost as annoying as Cooper anyway. I’d watch Fox News more often if they’d can her and give Laura Ingraham a chance in that time slot.
Ever stop to think that might be a leading indicator in audience quality?
The problem with this doll-like man and Rachel Madcow is that their audience WRITES the Urban Dictionary.
Didn’t somone once call Cooper ‘the Paris Hilton of journalism’?
CNN is going the way of the NYSlimes.
The two stooges Blitzed and Cafferty are an embarrassment to the word ‘news’. The rest of the station is populated with ignorant losers who have nothing to offer.
My vision of Hell, or at least Purgatory, is waiting forever for my delayed flight, unable to escape the horrific torture of loud CNN monitors all over the freeking airport.My wife was called up for jury duty recently in Collin Co., Tx.
When she got there, they had two monitors running CNN in the room where everyone was waiting. She went up and asked that one be put onto Fox News.
They refused (both being fed off of one tuner it seems), so she told them she would be waiting outside the door.
I love this woman...
I have lived that hell. I never wait near the gate.
That's why I always head straight for one of the airport bars to get trashed.
Anyway, the airport bars usually have sports on their TVs, unlike the ones in the main terminals.
I thought about watching Anderson Cooper once, but the Food Network had a show on about how they make tootsie rolls. Sorry, Coop.
CNN hasn’t done anything interesting since one of their news crews shot their way out of Tikrit, Iraq and they even apologized for doing that.
You can check out but never leave....(my vision of hell)
Butt Boy can always get hired on with flamingly gay Bravo Network.
“You gotta see it, you gotta be there, you gotta smell it.....” ((((click)))).
Anderson confessed that it is difficult to speak when teabagging. Perhaps people cannot understand him?
Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy! Perhaps his audience found his remarks about tea party attendees a bit much to take?
I’m happy to say that at the Dentist office I go to they play Fox. Also the pharmacy waiting area also runs Fox. Now if I could only get the Dr’s office to switch I’d never have to see CNN again.
Get a universal remote and change the channel on a random basis. Drive them crazy.
My guess: the face on the left is gravitas and the other one is confusion, right?
Maybe he can start up a show in Hanoi. IIRC, he studied in Vietnam.
I'm suprised she's able to get through a 1-hour television program. BTW, the difference between Cooper and the guys on Fox is they started this gig because they needed the job. Cooper is a Vanderbilt heiress who just likes to see herself on television. That might be another reason why people aren't watching.
If I was being beat by Olbermann..I swear..Id kill myself...or at least hide.
I like that idea!
