Bravo’s Andy Cohen Eyes Madonna, Michelle Obama


By Richard Horgan Comment

As Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live celebrates five years, the numbers are better than ever.


Per a Q&A with show star Andy Cohen by Hollywood Reporter TV editor Lacey Rose, the program this year is up five percent compared to the same period last year with a weekly viewership of 997,000.

When asked who is at the top of his guest wish-list, Cohen came up with four immediate answers:

“I love music people. I’d love Beyonce or Justin Timberlake. I’d still love Madonna, and I think that’ll happen.”

“The best guests for me are people who I’m actually a big fan of and very invested in. And we’re working on the first lady, too. She and I spoke about it, and she said, “I think that’s a thing we could do later in Barack’s second term.” I loved that answer because what that said to me is, when she comes, she’s going to go for it.”

In the interview, Cohen also reveals one of the rare notes he got from Bravo president Frances Berwick and annotates his five favorite WWHL interviews. Read the full Q&A here.
