CNN's broadcast to ring in the new year descended into a farcical and cringeworthy episode in which guest host Kathy Griffin insisted on kissing and tickling co-host Anderson Cooper's crotch, or 'sack' as she called it. "I'm going to tickle your sack. You can say sack. That's not bad," she said as Cooper nervously giggled and deflected saying "I don't know what you're talking about. I have no sack of gifts here." She then called for the camera to be lowered so viewers could see her "naughty gestures" and continued to try and get her head close to Cooper's crotch, much to his chagrin but he keeps it good humoured:
I doubt she'll be invited as a guest co-host again!
