Bravo Renames ‘Watch What Happens Live’

Bravo has renamed its latenight series Watch What Happens Live in preparation for its Jan. 3 return, the network said Thursday.

The newly named Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen will return Jan. 3 with a new logo and new studio set, said network officials. The series, which debuted in 2009, aired its 100th episode this past March.  

“Our new clubhouse is the perfect upgrade for us because it won't lose any of the intimacy or lunacy provided by our current home,” said Andy Cohen, host and executive producer of the series in a statement. “We're going from an audience of 22 to about 50, plus we have roof access and a whole lot of new surprises.  It's like moving from a Tic Tac to a studio apartment!”
