Kathy is an American late-night talk show hosted by Kathy Griffin. The show debuted on April 19, 2012 at 10:00 p.m. on Bravo and aired every Thursday.[1] The show was renewed for a second and final season, which started airing on January 10, 2013[2] as started to air Live at 10:00PM on Bravo, which was later changed to 11:30PM in mid-season.[3]

On April 6, 2013, Bravo announced the cancellation of Kathy after two seasons.[4]

Format[edit]

The show relies on Kathy Griffin's stand-up in the first part of the program. Kathy's mother Maggie Griffin, and Kathy's assistant Tiffany Rinehart, both seated in the front row of the audience, are then introduced. The main parts of the show feature a panel of "civilians" (random people, staff, or friends) and sometimes celebrities, chatting about hot issues of the week. The next part of the show is a pre-recorded segment involving comedic antics Kathy has done during the week. Finally, Maggie gives her opinions on topics and the night's events in a segment called "Maggie Tucks Us In".

In season 2, the set of the show was re-decorated. It was revealed that the studio of the show, Studio 58, used to be the studio of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson before it moved to Studio 56. Also, the panelists consists mostly of celebrities rather than "civilians". The segment "Maggie Tucks Us In" has been cut; however, Maggie Griffin, along with Rinehart are still seated in the audience each episode and Kathy would occasionally chat with them.
