Bravo staple Andy Cohen hosts this docuseries that explores today's headlines by taking a look at what happened in pop culture in the past to answer the question of how we got to where we are. He is joined by guests -- including the likes of journalist Anderson Cooper, politician Barney Frank, actress Kristin Chenoweth, and stars of Bravo shows -- to see how the past has affected the present. Topics covered include how the Spice Girls phenomenon in the 1990s relates to the present-day women's empowerment movement.
An extension of Bravo's "Watch What Happens" reunion specials and the original live online shows, this interactive series -- live on the East Coast -- is hosted by former Bravo programming executive Andy Cohen, who welcomes guests from some of the cable network's most popular series, as well as other entertainment stars, to chat about pop culture and celebrities in the news. In 2017, the show took on a new title -- "Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen" -- as part of an overhaul that included a remodeled studio offering a designated performance space for musical guests, a staple of most late-night shows.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines with in-depth reporting and investigations. Through nightly "Keeping Them Honest" reports, Anderson keeps his commitment to holding those in power accountable. And, of course, there's the RidicuList, a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the day's news that may leave viewers (and Anderson) laughing. Joining him are guests that frequently include political and legal analysts.
