Can’t get enough of CNN’s Anderson Cooper

Just stroll through Times Square in New York, and you can see plenty of the CNN anchor on a giant multi-screen HD billboard.

“With undercover investigations and hidden camera experiments, Anderson will offer a fresh perspective on issues and social trends affecting women's lives,” the website for the show promises. The show will film in front of a live studio audience in the Lincoln Center's The Allen Room in New York.

Cooper became a viral sensation in August when, in a video for his CNN segment “The RicuList,” Cooper broke into uncontrollable laughter while recapping a story on actor Gerard Depardieu urinating on a place.
