Cooper’s show returns to a daytime landscape that will include a highly-anticipated talk show hosted by Katie Couric as well as a new daily shows from Ricki Lake and Jeff Probst.

‘Our biggest overall goal for Anderson Live is to take the best elements of daytime and put it in a show that works in 2012,’ executive producer Terence Noonan tells The Hollywood Reporter.

‘Being live plays to Anderson’s strengths, providing immediacy and topicality, which allows us to talk about what is going on in the world.’
