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. We sat down with Cohen in his Manhattan studio to relive the wild ride...

Lindsay Lohan says she's planning her theatrical debut in a West End production of Speed-the-Plow.
While attending the Jeremy Scott fashion show in London, Lohan told The New York Times she's been in the U.K. for several months now preparing for a "potential" role in the David Mamet play. "It's the first time I've done a stage play or anything like that," she said. "I'm nervous but I'm excited." The actress would play Karen, a role that Madonna originated in the production's 1988 run at the Royale Theatre. Alicia Silverstone and Elisabeth Moss have also held the role.

Our top moments of the week:
13. Worst Melodrama: It's midway through Dancing with the Stars, and that means it's time for the annual Maks temper tantrum. Still burned by Julianne Hough's "phoning it in" comment and feeling the pressure to deliver for Meryl Davis, Maks comes thisclose to blowing a gasket, but is talked off the ledge by Meryl, who tells him to hold her hand. "It's really crazy. I must be the weakest freaking person in this ...
The OWN docu-series Lindsay ended its mostly lackluster season documenting Lindsay Lohan's life post-rehab with the actress opening up — and dropping a major bombshell.
On Sunday's episode, the director asked the 27-year-old actress some final questions about her overall experience filming the show. Surprisingly, Lohan revealed that her struggle with filming mid-way through production was because she suffered a miscarriage.
Lindsay Lohan's reality show promised an inside look at the troubled star working through her baggage and getting her life organized — we just didn't think it would be so literal.

LiLo spent the majority of Lindsay literally sorting through mountains of crap as she moved from Los Angeles to a NYC hotel to her apartment. Yet we watched and loved every banal second of it.
With the finale just around the corner, now is the perfect time to reflect on what is surely one of the most fascinating, frustrating — and yes — boring reality shows of all time. Check out everything Lindsay did on her "comeback" series below:

All season long, I've been likening CBS's freshman sleeper Mom to gritty sitcom foremothers like Roseanne and Grace Under Fire (shows on which executive producer Chuck Lorre famously spent time before his current CBS heyday). That comparison rings especially true in the first-season finale (Monday, 9:30/8:30c), as third-generation mom-too-soon Violet (Sadie Calvano) gives birth while her own imperfect mother, Christy (Anna Faris), and caustic grandma Bonnie (Allison Janney) look on with emotional empathy.
