(Newser) – After dropping the F-bomb, asking for a “bump” of cocaine, and theorizing on Anderson Cooper’s masturbation habits on New Year’s Eve, Kathy Griffin has finally gotten herself banned from CNN...or has she? “She was a total embarrassment,” a CNN insider tells PopEater. “Even Anderson thinks it's time to say goodbye to Kathy.” But Mediaite says that's not so, and notes that the ratings were rosy, with CNN leading the 11pm hour in both total viewers and the 25-54 demographic.

Though a source insists CNN execs have already decided not to invite Griffin back for 2011, a publicist tells Mediaite “no decisions have been made yet regarding next year's show.”
