8. "Anderson" Debuts
This fall, Anderson Cooper's syndicated talk show "Anderson" debuted. Everyone wondered how the serious journalist would transition from CNN and "60 Minutes" to a lighter daytime talk show. His first episode featured an interview with Amy Winehouse's parents. It was... decent. The silver fox tapped into his past experience as the host of "The Mole," and proved himself an entertaining, higher brow alternative to Wendy Williams and Dr. Phil. (Photo: Andersoncooper.com)
