They’re baaaaaack! For the sixth straight year, Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin will co-host CNN’s countdown coverage of New Year’s Eve on Monday, Dec. 31, from 10 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. (ET).

Or what’s become known as the annual tradition of Kathy terrorizing Anderson for four hours on live TV.

“We are back! This year @CNN we start at 10PM! When @AndersonCooper looks at this photo he thinks…,” Griffin wrote with glee as she Tweeted the photo above Thursday.

The hilarious odd couple will help ring in the New Year from New York City’s Times Square, with a special installment of “Anderson Cooper 360” airing before the live broadcast featuring the Best and Worst of 2012.

“As always, I await New Year’s Eve with Kathy Griffin with grave reservations and tremendous fear, and I want to apologize in advance to anyone she may offend/assault/attempt to kiss,” Cooper said.

“I don’t know what Anderson has been doing this past year. I assume he has been sitting, eating Bon Bons in his mother’s apartment watching reality TV, while I was helping spread democracy in Egypt or Syria or whichever,” said Griffin. “Oh, and did I mention we’re giving away puppies at midnight?”

The second season of “Kathy” premieres Thursday, Jan. 10 at 10/9c on Bravo.
