Bravo readies Real Men Watch Bravo with Jerry O’Connell

NBCUniversal-owned network Bravo Media is launching Real Men Watch Bravo,  a late-night talk show executive produced and hosted by actor Jerry O’Connell.

Produced by Embassy Row, the show will feature O’Connell alongside a panel of male celebs, comics and tastemakers as they discuss buzz-worthy Bravo moments and a variety of pop culture topics.

An avid Bravo viewer, O’Connell is not shy about providing advice to The Real Housewives from every franchise to taking sides on some of the most controversial Bravo feuds.

Real Men Watch Bravo will offer the male point of view on all things Bravo and entertainment. Whether realizing they were a die-hard Vanderpump Rules fan after being introduced to the series by their girlfriends or learning how to cook from binging Top Chef episodes, these men are unapologetic ‘Bravoholics’.

The late-night show is produced by Michael Davies, Andy Cohen and O’Connell serve as executive producers.

Real Men Watch Bravo is set to premiere fall 2018 on Bravo.
