Kathy Griffin returns to Bravo tonight in a new format.

The network that telecast six seasons of the Emmy-winning "My Life On the D-List" and 13 of Griffin's stand-up comedy specials is now home to Kathy (11 p.m., Bravo), an hourlong, weekly, late-night talk show.

Bet on Kathy being Kathy. She'll skewer celebrities and do her best to be outrageous.

Her fans wouldn't have it any other way.
