Oct. 11 (UPI) -- Andy Cohen will replace Kathy Griffin as Anderson Cooper's co-host for CNN's New Year's Eve special.

Cohen, who hosts Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live," will join his friend Cooper for "New Year's Eve Live with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen" in Times Square on Sunday Dec. 31st

"Andy is the life of the party wherever he goes, and what bigger party is there than New Year's Eve? It is going to be a blast!" Cooper said.

CNN terminated its agreement with Griffin, Cooper's longtime co-host for the show, in May after she participated in a photoshoot that featured herself holding up a bloody, decapitated head resembling President Donald Trump.

Cohen and Cooper regularly tour together, hosting a night of conversation in various cities throughout the country.

"I've been friends with Anderson for twenty-five years. We've traveled the world together and performed in 30 plus cities with 'AC2' and it's all led to this one huge night!" Cohen said.
