New Year’s Eve Live (Boycott Alert!)(Sunday 8 p.m.-12:30 a.m., CNN) Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen (Bravo chatfest “Watch What Happens Live”) This year we are boycotting CNN due to the horriable way Andy Cohn got this gig. He stabbed Kathy Griffen in the back after she gave America a bloody plastic mask that looked like Trump. He pretended not to know her even though he produced her Emmy award winning show. Most importently he has the interviewing skills of a wet mop. I would rather watch paint dry and mold grow than listen to that queen interview a piece of toast. I hope this years rating are in the septic tank. This man is charm and talent free. Turn to Ryan Seacrest on ABC. She’s better.(Wink Wink). Don Lemon and Brooke Baldwin take over at 12:30 from New Orleans.
