Andy Cohen on 'SNL' Parody: 'I Am Flattered!'

…You probably shouldn’t be.

Bravo executive and ‘Watch What Happens Live!’ host Andy Cohen was the target of a ‘Saturday Night Live’ parody, with Taran Killam delivering his impression of Cohen.

“I’m like a shark! I have to keep moving, or I’ll die,” said Killam-as-Cohen, referencing Andy’s fidgety mannerisms.

Most of the sketch was centered around Andy’s cuteness:

“It’s time for viewer questions. This first question asks, what would it look like if you, Andy Cohen, had your head Photoshoppped on a Pomeranian’s body? And that question was asked by nobody.”

On Sunday morning, real-life Andy Tweeted: “OMG the one night I go to bed early I’m lampooned on SNL?! Great job I am flattered! #ImLikeAShark #VeryCute”

In regard to Killam’s flamboyance, Andy said: "On a scale of Clint Eastwood to Paul Lynde, I always thought I was a little more on the Clint Eastwood side than the Paul Lynde side.”

But his final critique: “I got it. ... It was funny. It was funny as hell."

In the same skit, Kenan Thompson played Desmond Tutu and Sofia Vergara took on the role of some chick from ‘The Shahs of Sunset.’ I have no idea who anyone is on that show because there are only so many vapid reality shows I can watch and I reached my limit with ‘My Strange Addiction’. But Lauren McKinnon quite possible stole the sketch with her impression of Bravo hairstylist Tabatha Coffey.

Not everyone was a fan of the bit, though. ‘Third Rock From the Sun’ actress Kristen Johnston didn’t see the humor in it.
“If only the guy playing you had actually thought abt his ‘impression’…I thought it sucked. He dint sy ‘sweetie’!”
