Is Andy Cohen ready to leave Bravo’s ‘Watch What Happens Live’ behind?
The host is currently working on a new show, ‘Look Who’s Hosting Live,’ where various celebrities will come in and take their turns hosting the late-night gig.
Sources are speculating that this is Andy’s way out.

“Andy is over [‘Watch What Happens Live’],” said one insider. “He’s been doing that show forever. He wants to do other things. Taping every night at 11 p.m. is cramping his style.”
TV execs say the new show is just a disguised way of trying out potential replacements, and once Cohen is replaced, he’ll be free to succeed Michael Strahan and join Kelly Ripa at “Live with Kelly and .?.?.”
A Bravo spokeswoman said, “This is untrue. ‘Watch What Happens Live’ with Andy Cohen as host is continuing on the network and [was] recently renewed for another season.”
Describing “Look Who’s Hosting Live,” Variety said Cohen “turns the tables on celebrities who have envied his job and gives them the ultimate opportunity to host their own live late-night talk show, for one night only.”
Variety added, “From writing monologues, to picking their sidekicks and guests, these hosts-for-a-night will get the chance to live out their fantasy and design their dream show.”
Do you think Andy should leave ‘Watch What Happens Live?’ Who would you like to see step in and host the show as a replacement?
