She followed all that success up with her first guest host gig on 'Saturday Night Live.' That's an impressive body of work for one year. However, she still can't escape talking about her real body.
"I've been up and down," McCarthy told Anderson Cooper during an appearance 'Anderson,' Cooper's daytime talk show. "I've been much thinner since my second baby. I'm still working on it. It's a work in progress."
'Anderson' will have a new home in New York. The one-hour talk show has been on WPIX 11 during its current freshman season, but it will move to WNYW, the local Fox affiliate. The show is distributed by Warner Bros.
"This is a terrific testament to these strong stations who, like us, see 'Anderson' as the next early-fringe syndication franchise," Ken Werner, president of Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, said.
Gawker is reporting that a teenager who was booked to appear on 'Anderson' is in a coma after sustaining a serious head injury in a skateboarding accident. A producer for the show had allegedly encouraged him "go out and film the crazy stuff that you do."
Cooper's reps have released a statement addressing the incident: "Our producers were working with a teen and his parents on a show about the science of the Teenage Brain, based on a National Geographic story. As part of our routine process, we ask guests for video footage and photos. We did not provide the family with a camera. On the morning that they were supposed to travel to NYC, we learned that the teen had been injured. We are very concerned about him, and are thinking of him and his family at this time."
Their tanning date didn't get off to a great start, as the 'Jersey Shore' star decided to get her teeth whitened, making Cooper wait for twenty minutes. But after she was done, she escorted him to the tanning room, where she was impressed by his muscles. "I had no idea that Mr. Anderson had muscles. When he took off his shift, he had huge, like, peanut muscles ... cool!" she said.
After he had some fake ab-lines painted on, she said he'd look like Ronnie, a great look for a dignified newsman. Check out the clip after the jump.
To make matters worse, the first night Griffin was in his house, she was there alone. That freed her up to send pictures of herself in various states of undress, draped all over his house. Clearly she was making herself more than comfortable in his house.
She then crawled into bed to continue making him uncomfortable, asking him if he wanted to touch her, and even revealing that she's wearing his underwear. But nowhere turned out to be safe from her shenanigans.
But behind the lurid headlines she was also a much-loved daughter. Her grieving parents sat down with Anderson Cooper on the series premiere of 'Anderson' (Weekdays, Syndicated) to talk about how they've been coping since her death.
Struggling to control her emotions, Amy's mom Janis comforted her ex-husband Mitch as he covered his face with a handkerchief and wept while Cooper played a clip of Amy singing 'To Know Him is to Love Him.'
The former taxi driver said they have struggled to go on since Amy died, and he broke down as he spoke of the special bond that existed between him and his daughter.
Tamlyn Tomita ('The Joy Luck Club') and Keong Sim ('The Last Airbender') will play parents to newly minted series regular Harry Shum Jr. in the third episode of the new season, which is scheduled to air Oct. 3. Mike Chang gets a back story? Awesome!
Now that Mercedes has a new boyfriend, we can only hope poor Tina won't be pushed to the backburner all year for a disappointing third time.
