Bravo Sets Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen 15th Anniversary Special

Break out the shotski: Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen is having a birthday party.

The late-night series is officially turning 15 years old in July, and Bravo is planning to celebrate with a primetime special honoring all things Andy. The anniversary episode will air on Sunday, June 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT and is set to feature a full guest list of Bravolebrities and the A-list names who love them (John Oliver is one of them, though no word on whether he’s been invited to the big bash). 

“Fifteen is my new lucky number,” said Cohen in a press release. “I can’t wait to celebrate the WWHL legacy.” 

The executive-turned-host went on to thank the network “for always having faith in our little late-night show that could—allowing me to ‘go there,’ play ridiculous games, host incredible guests, and generate endless watercooler talk. This is my dream job, and I hope I never wake up.”

What What Happens Live aired its first episode on July 16, 2009. At the time, Cohen was Bravo’s executive vice president of development and talent and an executive producer on some of the network’s most popular series, including The Real Housewives franchise and Top Chef. While his main role was behind-the-scenes, Cohen’s stints in front of the camera to host (or, more accurately, referee) several reunion specials proved he had a knack for connecting with audiences. In 2013 he departed his C-suite role to focus on his on-camera ventures and hasn’t looked back since. 

In the lead-up to this anniversary special, Bravo plans to honor the series’ legacy by resharing some of the show’s most memorable moments on its social media channels. 

Come July, Cohen could have yet another thing to celebrate: a possible Emmy nomination. While the 2024 nominees won’t be announced until July 24, Cohen recently told The Hollywood Reporter that his team feels confident that “‘This year’s gonna be the year for us,’” as far as Emmy nods go. The host, however, is tempering his expectations: “I tell them they’re wasting their time,” he said.

Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen currently airs Sunday through Thursday at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
