Surprise! Bravo’s barely publicized “Watch What Happens: Live” premieres tonight. Since you probably haven’t heard about it, let me fill you in. Andy Cohen, Bravo’s Senior Vice President of Production and Programming—a.k.a, the guy who hosts all of the channel’s reunion shows—takes the reigns Thursdays at midnight for a live run down of his favorite weekly moments in pop culture. The half-hour show will include “Bravolebrities” and A-list guests, claims Bravo’s website. Honestly, this show sounds a lot like “The Soup” or “Best Week Ever,” only with our Bravo faves like Danielle Staub.
Cohen has described the show as “a cross between the network’s reunion shows and ‘Playboy After Dark.”” I dunno—the only people I know who watch Bravo are women and gay men, and I highly doubt any of them know what “Playboy After Dark” is like. Anyways, “Housewife” Danielle will be featured in the premiere episode, along with a call-in from Sarah Jessica Parker, who’ll gab about her upcoming fashion series set to debut on the network.

I have pretty low hopes for this endeavor and due to the scarce publicity, I suspect Bravo does as well. Will you still watch what happens?
