Andy Cohen Replaces Kathy Griffin as CNN New Year's Eve Co-Host

Andy Cohen Replaces Kathy Griffin as CNN New Year's Eve Co-Host

Said Cohen, "I've been friends with Anderson for twenty-five years".

Anderson Cooper has a new New Year's Eve buddy - and it's an old friend.

She took a knee and raised a fist, a nod to the National Football League protests that Trump and Pence have both denounced, and then spiked the mask, to uproarious applause. "We found what she did disgusting and offensive", CNN said in a statement at the time.

Griffin took huge heat, including an investigation by the Secret Service, for her stunt with photographer Tyler Shields, where she was shot holding what looked like the president's severed, bloody head.

Cohen and Cooper regularly tour together, hosting a night of conversation in various cities throughout the country. She said in August in an interview with The Cut that her friendship with Cooper was over.

For his part, Cohen had also hosted several New Year's Eve specials in recent years, dating back to 2010. Most recently, Cohen appeared on Anderson Cooper 360 Monday to dissect the president's recent tweets.

Griffin and Cooper previously served as co-hosts of the show since 2007 and had been longtime friends for almost two decades before their falling out in the wake of the Trump photo scandal.
