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...

Some things you just can't do from Beautiful Downtown Burbank. On the first night of a reinvented, relocated Tonight Show now starring Jimmy Fallon from the heart of New York City, U2 took to the Top of the Rock — 30 Rock, that is — to perform "Invisible" with the glittery Manhattan skyline gloriously visible behind them.
Jimmy Fallon ushered in a new era of The Tonight Show, and welcomed the show back to New York for the first time in more than four decades on Monday. Although the former Late Night host was broadcasting from the same studio, with the same band and the same announcer, the historical impact of The Tonight Show's return to the Big Apple was...

Alison Brie as Annie, Jim Rash, Yvette Nicole Brown
Here's something you've probably never heard anyone say while watching NBC's Community: Yeah, that could happen.
And so it is this week, with an episode (8/7c) by Oscar-winning screenwriter/goofball extraordinaire Jim Rash (Dean Pelton), in which Troy and Abed go too far — what else is new — in their obsession with cheesy body-switching movies. Before you can say Freaky Friday, Troy is adopting Abed's dislocated mannerisms while Abed channels Troy's giddy swagger. Donald Glover and Danny Pudi are, as usual, a joy to watch, even if the message behind their madness is delivered with a heavy hand reflective of this uneven transitional season. And who could blame Rash for giving himself some of the best bits, as the Dean imagines he has pulled off his own body switch with his numero-uno obsession, the unamused Jeff Winger (Joel McHale).
