PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Anderson Cooper was in town today promoting his new daytime TV show, “Anderson.”

Cooper, the award-winning journalist, is on CNN and does pieces for “60 Minutes” on CBS. And for the past two months, he has been working on his daytime show, “Anderson,” taped in New York City.

Cooper, 44, says he wanted to do a show that was not only informative but also entertaining, covering a wide variety of topics from big celebrity interviews to provocative social issues to fun standups — like getting a spray tan with Snooki, one of the stars of the “Jersey Shore” reality series.

“I was in a position of helping people who were in very serious situations, and I realized that in news you can only do that now and then,” Cooper said today. “But in daytime TV you can actually do that regularly — you can actually help people in their lives and you can make people’s days more interesting and more fun, and give them information that they can use in their lives.”
