The Good: Andy writes of his work in television and encounters with celebrities—reality and real—is so nerdily good-natured and enthusiastic you can’t help but get caught up in his stories. Like Mindy Kaling’s, Andy Cohen’s childhood was idyllic and television-filled, leading him as an adult to really go for his dreams of becoming a star. And, considering the fact that the Housewives are my television weakness, Andy’s stories of the Real Housewives made my day. Finally, unlike Fey and Kaling, Cohen isn’t reluctant to dish just a little bit about the people he’s met and worked with over the years.
AudioEffects: Andy reads his story with enthusiasm and, well, a lovable dorkiness. The most fun you’ll have all year.
Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture is a way-too-short 8 hours and 32 minutes long.
