Bravo Taking 'Watch What Happens Live' to Five Nights a Week

Publish date:

Bravo is expanding Andy Cohen's late-night talk show Watch What Happens: Live! to five nights a week, the network said Monday.

The show, which currently airs at 11 p.m. on Sundays and Mondays, will expand to Sunday through Thursday starting Jan. 8. WWHL will air live four nights a week with one night live to tape.

Cohen, who is also Bravo's executive vice president of programming, will give up that title in the expansion of his on-air role, instead becoming executive VP of development and talent. He will still serve as an executive producer on the Real Housewives franchise and Top Chef.

Longtime Bravo senior executive Jerry Leo has been promoted to executive vice president, program strategy and production to oversee the network's current slate of more than 30 original series that Cohen will give up oversight of.

The news also negates the idea that Cohen, who is said to have been on the shortlist to replace Regis Philbin on Live! with Regis and Kelly would leave to host the syndicated Disney-ABC morning program.
