ANDERSON LEFT AT STARTING GATE

It was something less than an auspicious start for Anderson Cooper’s syndicated talk show. Among all daytime talk shows airing on the broadcast networks on Monday, Cooper’s ranked 12th out of 13, with Dr. Oz, who inherited most of Oprah Winfrey’s time slots, taking the lead, followed by The View and Live with Regis & Kelly. Producers of Anderson, which is syndicated by Warner Bros.’ Telepictures division, pointed out that he was hampered by preemptions in several large markets by CBS’s coverage of the U.S. Open. Because of the preemptions, the ratings were likely “atypical,” a spokesperson told the Los Angeles Times.
