For several years, Andy Cohen juggled his day job as Bravo's executive vice president of development and talent while also hosting the network's hit late-night talk show Watch What Happens Live, which averaged nearly one million viewers last year. But at the start of 2014, Cohen left the suit behind and launched a new production company, Most Talkative, while continuing to host WWHL, which Bravo picked up for two more years.

Jay Leno isn't going away — but despite all the speculation about where he might land after The Tonight Show with Jay Leno ends on Feb. 6, the host is still keeping us guessing.
"You can't really do something like this again," says Leno, who spent most of his 21 years on The Tonight Show as TV's most-watched late-night star. "Because if you're not No. 1, you'll get 'Oh, Jay sucks, he's not No. 1.' And once you do this, you don't really want to do The Tonight Show Lite."
With two weeks left before his final show, Leno sat down with TV Guide Magazine for an exit interview of sorts. Of course, he made a similar round of chats in 2009, when he left the show the first time. ("I'll see you when I get fired from my next job," he quips.)

Goodbye and good luck, Good Luck Charlie. The Disney Channel sitcom will end its four-season run with a one-hour episode on ...
NBC headed into midseason last year with plenty of momentum — only to see its fortunes collapse as The Voice took a winter nap and new hit Revolution went on hiatus.
Lesson learned. Not taking this fall's solid ratings for granted, NBC will bring its new smash, The Blacklist, back in January before taking a break for the Olympics. And the Winter Games will provide a ratings boost as well as a broad platform on which to market the network's upcoming series.
