Kristin Chenoweth is one step closer to her recovery from a head injury suffered on the set of "The Good Wife" after Anderson Cooper announced the actress will co-host the second season premiere of "Anderson Live."
Chenoweth, 44, left "The Good Wife" in August after sustaining a head injury on the set of the CBS series when a piece of lighting equipment fell on her, People magazine reported. The injuries were serious enough that Chenoweth was taken to the hospital.
"It is with deep regret to inform everyone that due to my injuries, I am unable to return to The Good Wife at this time," the actress said at the time. "[I'm] getting better slowly, and thank you everyone for your concern."
Cooper, 45, is the marquee talent at CNN and also hosts the talk show "Anderson Live" on CBS.
In its second season, "Anderson Live" is shaking up its format by featuring new co-hosts each day, according to Broadcasting & Cable.
"We've got a lot of fun, great things planned for the new season. I am really excited to be joined by daily co-hosts and look forward to switching to a live format, which allows us more freedom to cover topical issues as well as connect more with the viewer at home," Cooper told the website.
Guests for the second season will include Richard Gere, Beyonce, Jake Gyllenhaal, Claire Danes, Meg Ryan, Ben Affleck, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Kerry Washington, Kelsey Grammer, Carol Burnett and Stephen Colbert, according to playbill.com.
"Anderson Live" airs weekdays at 3 p.m. on CBS.
