Kathy Griffin

What a D**k!

1/2/2009 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kathy Griffin is certainly old and experienced enough to know you don't make lewd cracks when you're wearing a hot mic... Anderson Cooper was cool about it, but d**k jokes on CNN just don't seem right -- even for New Year's Eve.

KATHY WHO,
WHAT WAS CNN THINKING TEAMING HER UP WITH AC. THEY NEED TO RETHINK THAT.
RUDE, ANNOYING, NO CLASS.
SHE IS HER OWN BIGGEST FAN, WHICH REALLY ISN'T SAY MUCH. SHE JUST NEEDS TO GO AWAY, AND BECOME A HAS BEEN.

What D--k thought up this? Class vs Class-less, not funny at all. CNN or HLN whatever you are calling yourselves today, Why would you do this to Anderson? CNN has tried to be "Hip" and fractured itself......Will take more than a band-aid to fix this one.

Wow CNN. If you were going for edgy you failed miserably. What made you think Anderson & Kathy would pair up well? We are talking about zero chemistry. I love Anderson and I think he showed great restraint. If I was in his situation, Kathy would have been pushed off of the balcony (or platform, whatever they were on). I say next year, bring Erica Hill out of the audience and put her in Kathy's place - she's funnier.

I agree with the majority on this issue -- Kathy Griffin totally wrecked CNN's New Year's Eve Show with Anderson Cooper! She was only tolerable LAST year, but this year.....puke!! I mostly watched MSNBC's New Year's Eve programming which I thought was excellent!! Dang........bet Anderson had the worst hangover today by virtue of simply having to deal with Kathy last night. HOPE CNN will NOT try that again!!

Well, it's so true...you get what you pay for! That sorry excuse for entertainment is a 2-cent piece of trash!! Last night, the 2.7 seconds that I watched, was an embarrassment and offensive! My TV has seen the last of CNN. It was disgraceful!!

Kathy is not the sharpest pencil in the box, so she has to resort to rude, obnoxious, attention whoring behavior as opposed to Anderson, who is extremely intelligent, well traveled and all around great guy. If you are watching CNN on New Year's Eve, then you probably are looking for more intelligent content, as opposed to this drivel she spouts. I cannot bear to watch or hear her, like nails on a chalkboard.

Wow. I dont get it. She should be sharp, happy and witty and full of life with Obama in and Bush out? Why arent all these libs happy instead of borish, slobbering miserable drunks? She was embaressing, even for KG, and totally blew this gig for CNN.

Kathy was hilarious. I liked the pairing of rude Kathy with classy AC. I was switching between stations and re-watched the CNN parts I missed.
