After CNN relieved Griffin from her duties, Cooper said he was "appalled" by the photo.

It's official ― Andy Cohen is the new co-host for CNN's New Year's Eve show.

After Griffin posted a photo of herself brandishing a severed head that looked like President Trump, CNN chose to cut ties with the comedienne. The twosome will ring in 2018 from Times Square on CNN's "New Year's Eve Live with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen" on Sunday, December 31. Cooper said in a press release.

Cohen will be joining Anderson Cooper on the broadcast and the two of them will be ringing in the new year with all of us this year. Griffin and Cooper had co-hosted CNN's New Year's Eve coverage since 2007. "We've travelled the world together and performed in 30 plus cities with "AC2" and it's all led to this one huge night!" It came as the result of the backlash a photo shoot of hers received, depicting her holding the severed (fake) head of Donald Trump.

In an interview with The Cut, Griffin said, "Why are people still expecting me to apologize and grovel to a man that tweets like this?"

Due to their friendship, Cohen and Cooper have frequently appeared on each other's program.
