TV BRIEF

Cooper's daytime talk show won't get a third season

— “Anderson Live,” the daytime talker from CNN news personality Anderson Cooper, won't be getting a third season from Telepictures, the syndicated division of Warner Bros. Warner Bros. executives started telling stations last week of the decision not to renew the series.

Cooper joined the daytime fray in 2011, with then-titled “Anderson.” After the show failed to generate solid numbers, a number of changes took place to usher in the second season: a new show title, a live format, a studio audience, revolving guest co-hosts and a new location for the studio.

But the alterations did little to boost the show's prospects, especially as it faced a crowd of new talk shows from Katie Couric, Steve Harvey, Jeff Probst and Ricki Lake. Its most recent week averaged just 1.45 million viewers — putting it behind daytime heavyweights such as “Dr. Phil” and even newbies “Katie” and “Steve Harvey.”

Next season, Warner Bros. will roll out “Bethenny,” starring “Real Housewives” alum Bethenny Frankel.
