So I missed Tuesday's dustup when Anderson Cooper decided to do space aliens. But after checking out the disjointed excerpts posted on his Anderson website, it's pretty obvious he's stretched his brand way too thin, like Hollywood icons who endorse jock-rash powder in Japan. Anderson Cooper is an amazing guy who does anchor work and Planet Iin Peril documentaries for CNN, contributes to 60 Minutes, freelances magazine pieces, jets off at a moment's notice to file from every far-flung exploding hell-hole on Earth, properly challenges authority, and racks up Emmys the way Michael Jordan used to collect NBA championship bling. He's perceptive, quick, and comes prepared. Except when he doesn't. And judging from his slapdash "discussion" on Tuesday, it would seem as if this otherwise gifted workaholic bit off more than he could chew last September when he signed up for a daytime show to complement his prime-time chores on CNN. You could've ripped this lazy network-formula guest lineup from a forgettable blur of countless precedents. There was the designated Skeptic, Joe Nickell, going toe-to-toe with John Ventre, a Pennsylvania state MUFON director misidentified as the MUFON director. Sandwiched in between were a couple of so-called abductees and a woman who took a few bad photos of a UFO. And don't forget Cassandra, the psychic who communicates telepathically with aliens. In short, it was the sort of jellybean you'd expect from a twinbill that teased a chat with actor Topher Grace on the back end. Cooper ditched the Emmy pretensions and mailed it in when he confronted abductees Brittany and Jennifer about driving around between midnight and 4 a.m.: [More at site... thanks to 'The Norm' for the lead] Listen to 'Strange Days...
