Andy Cohen Will Replace Kathy Griffin On CNN's New Year's Eve Show

Andy Cohen Will Replace Kathy Griffin On CNN's New Year's Eve Show

Andy Cohen has been tapped to co-host CNN's New Year's Eve telecast alongside Anderson Cooper after Griffin was sacked by the news network earlier this year.

Cohen "could not be more excited", he said in a Tweet.

Griffin was dropped from the celebration after doing a photoshoot in which she posed with the decapitated head of Donald Trump.

The Wrap is reporting the Bravo honcho will join the other AC for Anderson Cooper's New Year's Eve Live on December 31.

They will bring the show to New York City on January 26 and 27 at the Beacon Theatre.

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.

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

The two will co-host CNN's New Year's Eve coverage. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate", he wrote at the time.

She told the audience that the man told her he also sent the letter to Cooper, to whom it is addressed. Griffin apologized and said she "went too far".
