Andy Cohen Accuses James Corden of Copying The ‘WHHL’ Set

Media Take Out Staff |

Bravo executive Andy Cohen is accusing James Corden of using his “Watch What Happens Live” set as major inspo for “The Late Late Show With James Corden.”

“I think there has been a traditional idea of what a late night talk show is, and I would argue that ‘Watch What Happens Live’ redefined what the late night talk show is,” he said on the “Table for Two with Bruce Bozzi” podcast.

“[WWHL] was the first bar on late night [then] James Corden got a bar.”

Cohen also shared that he feels left out from his other nighttime show host’s circle, even though he has a show which airs after dark.

“I don’t feel totally part of the [late night television] group and I have been on late night TV for 13 years,” he said. “Years ago, there was a big photoshoot that ‘Vanity Fair’ did of all of the late night talk show hosts and they left me out of it, but they added in James Corden who wasn’t even on the air yet and Trevor Noah who had just started.”
