Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen (abbreviated WWHL, previously named Watch What Happens Live) is an American pop culture-based late-night talk show hosted by Andy Cohen that premiered on July 16, 2009. It features Bravo's own reality programming in the manner of an aftershow and popular culture news. The show's title was inspired by the network's then-slogan, "Watch what happens."[1] The show is produced live from New York City, allowing interaction with viewers by phone and social media.[2] In November 2013, Bravo renewed Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen for two additional seasons.[3] On March 2, 2016, the show aired its 1,000th episode.[4] The show celebrated its ten-year milestone in June 2019 with Chrissy Teigen, John Mayer, and Luann de Lesseps making appearances.[5]

On December 9, 2019, the series was renewed for additional seasons throughout 2021.[6]

On March 13, the show suspended production due to the COVID-19 pandemic, during which Cohen himself tested positive for the virus. The show had been produced from Cohen's apartment starting in March.[7] The show returned to its Manhattan studio on October 11, 2020.[8]
