Anderson Cooper’s new daytime show didn’t debut with the best ratings. Only 1.3 million viewers tuned in for the premiere of “Anderson,” as he interviewed the family of Amy Winehouse. By comparison, twice as many people watched an episode of “Maury.”

The sometimes serious silver fox upped the ante on Tuesday’s show, as he allowed Snooki of “Jersey Shore” to take him for a spray tan.

As a shirtless Cooper had his physique enhanced with orange tint, Snooki said, “I had no idea that Mr. Anderson had muscles. . . . He had, like, a huge [points to arm] peanut muscle. Cool.”

This could all go away, America. Get watching!
