Anderson Cooper’s daytime talk show will be wrapping after two seasons.
Warner Bros. said Monday that the marketplace made it increasingly difficult for Anderson Live to break through to viewers despite format changes.
The show switched to live broadcasts in its second year but struggled to match the ratings performance of daytime frontrunners including Ellen and Live! With Kelly and Michael.
Warner Bros. says Cooper will continue with Anderson Live through summer 2013.
