Wednesday on Bravo’s nightly talk show/party hybrid Watch What Happens Live! host Andy Cohen (pictured above) advanced the new genre of “at-home” programming by handing out awards customized to content we have watched during the pandemic. In a nod to the idea of viewers (and to some extent celebrity talk show guests) relaxing in their own homes while watching or appearing on TV the awards were named The Golden Robes. When I first heard about them (in advance of the telecast) I briefly assumed they would honor memorable moments culled from many television talk and infotainment shows during the last seven months. It’s not a bad idea: Many of them certainly deserve recognition of some kind, if only for rapidly reinventing themselves and sharing their successes and failures for all to see.
