(Newser) – Looks like Anderson Cooper will stick to hard news for a while: Warner Brothers' syndication arm has decided not to renew the CNN host's afternoon show, Anderson, after next summer, the Media Decoder blog reports. Low ratings dogged the show from its first season, and changes including same-day tapings and a new set couldn't turn it around. One studio executive chalked it up to a tough market, noting that even Katie Couric's highly anticipated show hasn't yet struck the ratings mother lode.
