Jerry O'Connell Will Host a Bravo Late Night Show for Men, by Men

Because real men watch Bravo

There may be no bigger Bravo fan in the world than Jerry O'Connell, which is why it makes sense that the actor will host the network's newest late night show. The network has picked up Real Men Watch Bravo, a talk show executive produced by O'Connell and Andy Cohen, TV Guide has learned.

Much like Jane the Virgin star Justin Baldoni's talk show, which features a rotating panel of male guests discussing what it means to be a man today, O'Connell's show will also only feature male guests. Only instead of discussing the men's deepest insecurities and dreams, they'll discuss things like whether or not Lala Kent and Randall Emmett's relationship seems healthier than Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright's.

Any show that consists solely of male participants, whether by design on not, is likely to raise ire (just ask Justin Baldoni), but most things Cohen and O'Connell do have a cheeky self-awareness that, while it doesn't stop our side-eye, does at make hesitate to completely write off the show. And who knows, maybe O'Connell and Cohen will loosen up the premise and allow -- gasp -- some women and nonbinary guests to appear as well. Wouldn't that be novel?

Real Men Watch Bravo is the network's latest foray into late night. Andy Cohen famously started the trend with his hit series Watch What Happens Live and Bravo recently expanded their late night programming with Kandi Koated Nights, hosted by Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss.
