Well, CNN, I hope it was worth it.
You knew it was coming, and you let it happen. Probably hoped it would. Thought the prospect of Kathy Griffin misbehaving would improve your ratings against the mega-tradition of “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” with Dick Clark and Ryan Seacrest. (I mean, they put J Lo in a see-through bodysuit, for goodness sakes.)
So, you let Kathy co-host with poor, defenseless Anderson Cooper, even after she all but promised to let the profanity fly during the broadcast. I’ll admit I was interested in hearing the outcome, even though I didn’t end up watching.
She did use the F-word, as expected….but in a very pedestrian way. And only once. Anderson’s reply? “You’re terrible. Really terrible.” And then he went on with the show.
Boring, Kathy. Bor-ing. And very beneath your usual spectacle. In fact, it kinda looked like an A-lister pretending to be a D-lister.
Uh oh. Looks like Kathy has gotten too big…to act small.
