Andy Cohen discusses his late show “Watch What Happens: Live”
By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: Now in its third season, Bravo’s “Watch What Happens: Live” is one of late-night’s surprise hits.
The show has expanded to five nights for this week and is hosted, of course, by Andy Cohen, Bravo’s senior vice president of production and programming. He describes the show in the new issue of TV Guide as “’Wayne’s World’ meets ‘Playboy After Dark.’”
The vibe of it is very clubby, but it’s a club that everybody’s invited to,” Cohen says. “Everyone else goes really big in late-night and we kind of localize it and just host a small little cocktail party at 11 p.m. and it’s having great results.”
Based on Cohen’s online series of the same name, Watch What Happens: Live started in July 2009 at midnight with little fanfare. The show was only supposed to last three months, but the show clicked with Bravo viewers.
