Memo To AC: Ditch This Gig
by Billy Cox

Due to working (mostly) bankers' hours, De Void rarely watches
daytime TV. 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.:
