I have no idea why Anderson Cooper is fourth in the primetime ratings. O’Reilly’s a cantankerous asshole and Nancy Grace’s nose is more frightening than the words coming out of her mouth, although Lawrence O’Donnell does earn points for being a slightly less attractive Colin Firth. None of this should be able to hold a candle to Cooper’s likeable personality, even when he pulls a Bill Hader and can’t contain his laughter during an especially silly segment.
Wednesday night, during his “Ridiculist” segment, Cooper lost his shit when he tried to straight-face launch a story with at least 10 witty pee references about French actor Gerard Depardieu. For those who haven’t heard the story, a supposedly drunken Depardieu peed on an airplane after being told he couldn’t use the bathroom until after take-off. It’s the perfect fodder for a “Ridiculist” segment, but even the capably poker-faced Cooper couldn’t take himself seriously this time around, although I’m sure it didn’t help his crew was gasping with laughter in the background.

God, I can't wait to see how well the man does on Daytime TV!
