Andy Cohen Dishes on Five Years of Watch What Happens Live

It's the little late-night talk show that could. Next week, Watch What Happens Live — the kooky, wildly unpredictable chat-fest hosted by Andy Cohen — marks its fifth year on the air. That's no small feat, considering its very humble beginning as a shoestring web series anchored by a largely unknown Bravo network executive. Since then, plenty has changed. For starters, Cohen has become a celebrity in his own right, with one bestselling book down and a second due in the fall. And the ratings have grown. About 334,000 people tuned in for the first televised episode in 2009; this spring, WWHL hit an all-time high of 3.9 million viewers, and it's up 7 percent over Conan this season. The star power is also higher wattage. Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Meryl Streep, Lindsay Lohan and Oprah Winfrey are among the guests who have partaken in the mélange of parlor games, free-flowing cocktails and general pop-culture revelry that's made the pint-size "Bravo Clubhouse" ground zero for countless watercooler moments.

Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan Are Daytime's Dynamic Duo

It's a marriage made in Nielsen heaven. Live With Kelly and Michael was a hit from the get-go when it debuted on September 4, 2012. And the frisky daytime gabfest — hosted by Kelly Ripa and former NFL defensive end Michael Strahan — continues to show surprising muscle. It recently tied with Dr. Phil as the No. 1 syndicated talk show in household ratings, beating longtime champ Ellen (particularly impressive since Live airs in earlier time periods with lower TV usage). With more than 3.5 million viewers, the show is also drawing its biggest overall audience since 2007—08, when it was still Live With Regis and Kelly. Why has this 25-year-old program caught fire? We corralled Ripa and Strahan to find out.
