And TV comics such as Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Trevor Noah could not contain their excitement.
He is facing a criminal inquiry, which the president has strongly criticised.
It is also unclear why, if Cohen's work for Hannity was innocuous, the two men sought to keep their relationship secret.
With Hannity's photo on the screen, Noah put his hands together as if in prayer, looking up to the sky while mouthing the words "thank you".
"I really think that you should have disclosed your relationship with Cohen when you talked about him on this show", Dershowitz said.
The consequences of Hannity's misstep will be interesting. "Unless...maybe Sean Hannity was thinking about suing himself?" I have many (too many!) lawyers and they are probably wondering when their offices, and even homes, are going to be raided with everything, including their phones and computers, taken.

Cohen revealed that he had advised the television host within the last 12 months as he sought to fight against a raid of his office and a hotel room by federal prosecutors in Manhattan.
"Michael Cohen has three known clients".
MSNBC's Rachel Maddow said that she was "struggling not to laugh" after hearing the court revelation, and described the situation as "just nuts".
"Pro tip for the president", Colbert also offered, "when your lawyer needs a lawyer, you need a lawyer".
CNN was first out of the gate to land a dig on the conservative heavyweight, running a segment arguing that he should never have enjoyed lawyer-client privilege.

This time, the 56-year-old actor likened a sea creature to a popular Fox News host who was caught in a scandal yesterday.
Hannity said Monday that he occasionally turned to Cohen when he had legal questions but that he never paid him to be his attorney.

Hannity spent the majority of the hour attacking ex-FBI director James Comey, calling him "the most petty human being on earth".
"Are you going to answer any of these questions? And you had the right, by the way, not to have your identity be revealed". "And it's not your baby". But Hannity gets to play with the facts in terms of whether he's journalist or not and he's said both.

In his regular broadcast Monday, Hannity says he had "brief discussions" with Michael Cohen about "legal questions where I wanted his input and perspective".
