Cuomo, who co-anchored CNN's morning program "New Day" after coming over from ABC News in 2013, launched his prime-time program in June 2018. It has since been the highest-rated program on CNN each month.

Andrew Cuomo said his brother will be fine given his age and health.

"He is going to be fine. He's young. In good shape. Strong," he said before joking, "Not as strong as he thinks."

"He's a really sweet, beautiful guy — and he's my best friend," he also added.
