'Watch What Happens: Live' to air 5 days a week

Andy Cohen's “Watch What Happens: Live” is getting promoted. The New York Times reports that the successful Bravo talk show will air five nights a week beginning in January.

Cohen discussed the good news on his Bravo blog: “I am so excited about Bravo’s announcement that Watch What Happens: Live is going five nights a week starting January 8th!”

Currently, the late-night show runs new episodes on Sundays and Mondays, but with its new schedule, “Watch What Happens: Live” will air Sunday through Thursday at 11 p.m.

The expansion isn’t surprising, given the show’s popularity. Cohen's mischievous personality and wacky reality show guests (and celebs) draw an average of 1.2 million viewers. When it comes to attracting young female viewers, “Watch What Happens” is second to only “The Daily Show” in its time slot.

Michael Davies, the show’s executive producer, endorses the move, saying, “the dynamics of where late night is now are changing.”

On top of increasing his hosting duties, Cohen's also making a job title change. Formerly Executive Vice President for Original Programming and Development, he’s now Executive Vice President of Development and Talent. Cohen will remain an executive producer on the “Housewives” shows and “Top Chef,” but he’ll relinquish supervision over the rest of Bravo’s original programming.

Of the new gig, Cohen blogs, “This is all the culmination of a dream I had long ago given up, so it’s all the sweeter today.”

    Good Morning, Bill,I have a clarification queiston about some measurement & data terminology and I wasn't sure exactly where to post. In 2nd grade, line plots are introduced as a data representation. In 6th grade, the standards refer to dot plots. How are these alike and how are they different? We have typically seen those terms used to mean the same thing.Thank you,Julie
