Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper hosted CNN's New Year's Eve special together for the the third time in a row. While Cooper has experience hosting the special having done so since 2002 marking this as his 18th year. The 'Watch What Happens Live,' host took Kathy Griffin's place hosting the special. Griffin was removed after posting pictures holding a bloody Trump head. Despite it being their third go-around, viewers were thoroughly satisfied with the duo's antics and the special as a whole.
