The daily talk show formerly known as “Anderson” has been revamped for Season 2. In addition to the new title, set, and live format, “Anderson Live” will feature a rotating roster of guest co-hosts. In addition to Chenoweth the new season will feature guest go-hosts Goldie Hawn, Kelly Osbourne, Cyndi Lauper, Howie Mandel, Erin Andrews, D.L. Hughley and Kellie Pickler.

“We’ve got a lot of fun, great things planned for the new season. I am really excited to be joined by daily co-hosts and look forward to switching to a live format, which allows us more freedom to cover topical issues as well as connect more with the viewer at home,” Cooper revealed in a statement.

Guests this season will include Richard Gere, Beyonce, Jake Gyllenhaal, Claire Danes, Meg Ryan, Ben Affleck, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Kerry Washington, Kelsey Grammer, Carol Burnett and Stephen Colbert.
