Kathy Griffin will host a weekly talk show on Bravo

Bravo announced today that it is giving Kathy Griffin her own weekly talk show that will debut this spring, in addition to two more comedy specials.

The former My Life on the D-List star and Celebrity Mole winner’s show will be called “Kathy,” and comes 11 years after Kathy hosted Kathy’s So-Called Reality, an MTV clip show featuring her mocking clips from the week’s reality TV.

A press release describes it as “the destination to get Griffin’s thoughts on everything pop culture as she rants on the week’s biggest headlines and tabloid gossip as well as feature stand-up routines, celebrity interviews and taped segments.”

Bravo offered no further details this morning when it announced the show, and has not yet revealed a debut date or timeslot for “Kathy.” Starting this week, Bravo will air Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live” five nights a week, so this will give it 3.5 hours of talk a week.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
