Kathy Griffin, Anderson Cooper


They're baaaaack!

Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper are returning to cohost CNN's New Year's Eve coverage for the sixth consecutive year. The dynamic duo will ring in 2013 live from Times Square, where they'll undoubtedly bring loads of laughter and entertainment as we count down to the new year.

"As always, I await New Year's Eve with Kathy Griffin with grave reservations and tremendous fear, and I want to apologize in advance to anyone she may offend/assault/attempt to kiss," Cooper confessed in a statement.

The always unpredictable Griffin has never failed to put on a wildly amusing (and often entirely inappropriate) show. In years past, the fiery redhead has stripped down to her skivvies, dropped live F-bombs on air and even had some very choice words for a heckler.

Still, the famous friends couldn't be more excited to ring in the new year together, and Griffin is already aiming plenty of wisecracks at her newsie pal.

"I don't know what Anderson has been doing this past year. I assume he has been sitting, eating Bon Bons in his mother's apartment [while] watching reality TV, while I was helping spread democracy in Egypt or Syria or whichever," Griffin joked. "Oh, and did I mention we're giving away puppies at midnight?"

New Year's Eve Live With Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin will air Monday, Dec. 31, starting at 10 p.m. on CNN.
