The show premiered in July 2009 and has continued to grow by featuring Real Housewives to stars like Sarah Jessica Parker and Jerry Seinfeld.

He added, "It's the perfect storm — I get to do the three things I'm most passionate about — producing, developing and hosting for a brand that I love."
As he continues to take the seat on set which is modeled after his den, Andy will shift his role in the front office from executive vp programming to overseeing development and talent.
