Per The Hollywood Reporter, we can inform our readers that Cohen has officially been named as Griffin's replacement for CNN's New Year's Eve telecast. The network says that instead, Anderson Cooper will co-host the celebration teamed with Andy Cohen, host of Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live".

Andy Cohen will replace Kathy Griffin as Anderson Cooper's co-host for CNN's New Year's Eve special.

Meanwhile, Cohen said, 'I've been friends with Anderson for twenty-five years. Noting that he's known Cooper for 25 years, Cohen has publicly announced his excitement to co-host the New Year's Eve special with him. He most recently hosted New Year's Eve Game Night With Andy Cohen for NBC this past year, which averaged a 1.0 rating in the adults 18-49 demo. "We've traveled the world together and performed in 30 plus cities with 'AC2, ' and it's all led to this one huge night!"

Rukmini Callimachi, a correspondent for the New York Times, also said two senior USA officials denied that Jones was dead. According to the Sun , Jones was last seen fleeing from Raqqa, heading for a town on the border with Iraq.


After Griffin posted a photo of herself brandishing a severed head that looked like President Trump, CNN chose to cut ties with the comedienne.

In May, CNN fired Griffin after she appeared in a photo holding a fake, bloodied severed head meant to resemble President Donald Trump.

During a press conference, Griffin said the "termination was hurtful" even though her photo was immoral. However, in August, Griffin told NY magazine that their friendship had ended in the wake of the scandal.
