Andy Cohen Spreads Out at Bravo
By Adam Rathe
Andy Cohen’s getting ready for his close up.
The Bravo exec and personality (and Out100 honoree) is about to get a lot more famous—Monday Bravo announced that his late-night talk show, Watch What Happens: Live, has been expanded to five nights a week. Additionally, Cohen will give up his role as an executive vice-president of programming at the network and will take a gig overseeing talent and development.
"In my wildest dreams when I started at Bravo seven years ago, I never imagined that I would end up fulfilling my lifelong dream,” Cohen said, according to the Hollywood Reporter. “It’s the perfect storm—I get to do the three things I’m most passionate about—producing, developing and hosting for a brand that I love.”
Bravo honcho Frances Berwick is equally stoked to have Cohen take on a bigger role at the network.
“Expanding Watch What Happens: Live to five nights a week is the natural progression for this hit interactive show, and a testament to Andy’s enormous appeal,” she said. “It cements Bravo’s tentpole in late-night with this one-of-a-kind live, relatable and truly unpredictable format.”
And gives Cohen a chance to take in even more of the spotlight he’s become accustomed to.
