Andy Cohen talks about Bravo's new shows and Hoda Kotb's addiction to his late-night theme song.

on Jun 8, 20100

The weather in Manhattan is so perfecto, and I do know that talking about the weather is as boring as talking about your dreams from the night before, but I just need to mention it is all.

I had a gorgeous meal outside at Morandi last night after a great workday. Today is going to be incredibly busy and now I see that an OC Housewives marathon is just beginning, so I will have a lot of blond out of the corner of my eye all day. That's not a bad thing.

I stopped by the TODAY show this morning to see Bill Powers and Simone dePury from Work of Art. These guys are very cool and fun and fantastic on their show, which premieres tomorrow night after the finale of Top Chef Masters. The show is getting RAVE reviews all over the place — we're really excited!!! 

In other TODAY news, Hoda can't stop singing and tweeting "Andy Cohen's got the 411" from Jenni Pulos' WWHL theme song, and now it's in a loop in my brain as well.

Tonight is a HILARIOUS new Kathy Griffin stand-up special. Her routine about the show Hoarders is so damn funny to me, and I have never even seen an episode of that show!  Kathy is joining me in the Bravo Clubhouse in a week, and I cannot wait.

Andy, I'm a big fan and while I was watching the Watch What Happens: Live show last night (06-16-11) I took huge offense to your jackhole re: Canadians & Vancouver riots. I am a proud Canadian and from Vancouver but now reside in Virginia, USA & wanted to express to you and your viewers that "We, true Canucks fans would not behave like this and in fact are embarrassed that a few idiots are making a mockery of our team & all citizens."

Our coffee table is gone! I have that same glass/wood coffee table in my house here in St. L, was it a 1950's Soulard market find that our parents had in common?

Hey Andy, I love your show, you are a great guy and i really enjoy your guests. I just would like to know who came up with that set design. If it is supposed to look like a club house it doesn't. It looks more like any one of our parents living rooms in the late 70's.Whats up with the Childcraft Encyclopedias???? It is really depressing to look at and I would be very happy to replace it at my own expense with a design that would be more suiting for your personality. Best wishes, Richard

You know I have to say that the last time I got so excited about a new human who thrilled me was when I heard now Pres. Obama first speak. Andy Cohen, you have made my list. What a huge talent you are. You are innovative, intelligent, honest and not bad to look at either. I love everything you do. Without knowing who put these shows on, I watch every single one, and love them all. Congratulations and thank you for thinking out of the box. My third choice is Larry David and Kathy Griffin. Things are looking up. Thanks

Hey Andy - Can you get the sound people on Watch What Happens to move your mike? It sounds like you're shouting, to the point that the sound distorts sometimes. Otherwise love the show!

Dear Andy Cohen, I'm not sure who Hoda is, (early morning TV? I'm not awake yet) but it would surely take a lobotomy at this point to surgically remove your theme song from the loop it also plays in MY brain. Great taste Hoda! (who?) And to emphasize my love of your theme song, my ear otherwise rejects that robotic autotune effect that all other records are mixing in with vocal tracks lately. In fact, may I take the opportunity to ask for this trend to formally end? Dear Record producers, Please don't press that button. It SUCKS. Except for the Andy Cohen theme song. Then it's sort of infectious. See ya Thursday.

Andy, you are incredibly multi-talented and intelligent. How many network executives have the chops to be an on-screen personality, host and all-around charisma with appeal to every age group? You have the background, work history and credentials to back it all up, and on top of that, you are the BEST host I ever seen in daytime OR nighttime TV. And notice I don't even mention your beautiful looks, because I just don't think people realize who you really are at BRAVO. You are just THE MAN and probably the reason it is tremendously successful. Hope you earn 3 million or more per year, you deserve it. And if that sounds too low, add another 2 million onto that for good measure.

I watched Kathy Griffin's special last night and it exceeded my expectations! It was fresh, witty, quintessential Griffin. Thank you Bravo!

BTW - love your "Summer by Bravo" promo. Slick!

Andy, you make us laugh so much! I sent you a happy thank you on your Facebook page and I got such a sweet message back, thanks so much! My sister and I are so addicted to the HWs! She posts under janies.sister, and I told her you said hi! I agree with the other poster that commented, this is one former Catholic saying, not that I'd know, but you seem Good For the Jews!

I have to tell you, when you first hosted WWHL for the OC housewives, I thought you were just a pretty boy they picked to be a talky-host, I had no idea you were a Bravo executive, hee! I'm embarassed since I read your bio. Geez. Nice job at Bravo, and thanks in particular for having Kathy Griffin on soon! Watching her marathon right now. She rocks too.

We are waiting on pins and needles for Thursday night!

Kathy Griffin is BRILLIANT!I am so excited to see her new special tonight. And I have spent hours watching (and watching again and again) her specials on Bravo. No matter how many re-runs I watch I always laugh and they never get stale. But Bravo, why won't you re-run one of her earliest specials ....the one where she talks about her stint on Hollywood Squares and does a spot on impression of Anna Nicole Smith. It was hilarious! Please air it again!!

Andy this is off topic for your blog, but after reading the blogs from various housewives of various cities and their children it made me think of why I started watching the housewives in the first place. I liked the friendships, the spending, the trips and the lifestyles they had. Not the fighting on the show in blogs, facebooks, twitters or whatever. Go back to the beginning! I realize I am probably in the minority, but this viewer can't take much more.

Andy, I love love love all Real HW (esp O.C. is there another season coming?), Millionaire Matchmaker and Tabitha's Salon Takeover. Bravo ia the only channel I watch for entertainment other than Red Sox games since I found these shows. Good work and dont get rid of any of the above mentioned!

I Think The New Show about The Next Great Artist will help our Cultural Pursuits become more Fun With Beauty Than Our Nations War and Oil and Immigration Problems. Lets Keep Our Eye's and Minds On The Prize. A Really Great Country and Life Renewed With Love and Adoration For "GOD" The One Of Your Choice.

Please have Danielle removed from the Real Housewives of NJ. She is troubled and doesn't make for good TV. The show would be great just show the rest of the "REAL HOUSEWIVES", their homes, family events, etc.

The housewives did you ever think that some of them would be in the news every day? or that their lives w/d be so crazy? Sometimes they are a mess, except for the Manzos, would have loved to be at dinner last night at the Manzos, the rehashing was awesome!!!
