Granted, the choice isn't hard. The competition is Ryan Seacrest and Carson Daly - both of whom make my teeth grind, to be frank - and so I settle onto CNN instead. But the fact of the matter is that the Griffin/Cooper duo is just plain awesome. Their dynamic consists of Kathy desperately pulling out all the stops to make jokes and Anderson giggling and trying to make her PC for the cameras. Together, they are awkward, and adorable.
In this year's incarnation, we got a glimpse into the unlikely BFF status of Kathy and Anderson's mom, Gloria Vanderbilt (and Anderson's resulting embarrassment), Kathy repeatedly punching Anderson in the stomach, Kathy repeatedly trying to undress Anderson, Anderson asking the viewers to vote on which pair of his glasses they liked, and Kathy throwing said glasses over the edge of their platform.
And of course, there's always the threat of Kathy being fired because she drops an f-bomb on television. And although I usually don't mind when she gets offensive, I desperately hope she can continue to rein it in because I don't want to switch over to NBC.
Behold, Griffin and Cooper in all their giggly glory:
Happy New Year, all! May 2011 bring you awesomeness - even if you watch Carson Daly or Ryan Seacrest.
