Allbritton renews ‘Anderson’ for season 2 on WJLA

Anderson Cooper (Evan Agostini - AP)

Allbritton’s television stations have renewed Telepictures’ new Anderson Cooper talk show, “Anderson,” for a second season. Those stations include Washington’s ABC affiliate, WJLA, which gave “Anderson” our city’s plum “Oprah” time slot — weekdays at 4 p.m.

It’s unclear whether “Anderson” will air in the time slot when it returns on WJLA in the fall.

WJLA recently bought Katie Couric’s new daytime talk show, which will debut in the fall. Disney, which is producing that show, hopes Couric will become the new Oprah.

According to a source who has knowledge of the situation, the Allbritton “Anderson” renewal deal includes “9 to 6” wording, meaning the show must air some time in that range — no late-night or crack-of-dawn time slots allowed. But there’s talk that the show might be moved to 3 to make room for “Katie” at 4, creating an interesting “Anderson”/“Katie” block.
