'Watch What Happens: Live' Interrupted By Fire Alarm, Forcing Evacuation (VIDEO)

"Watch What Happens: Live" is a title that usually refers to either the silly antics of host Andy Cohen or some of the outrageous behavior of his guests. But when he had Jeff Lewis and Cloris Leachman on, something really did happen. Viewers got to watch as the fire alarm went off and they ultimately had to evacuate the set and the building.

Andy Cohen took to Twitter to update fans as he and everyone with the show had to evacuate the building via the stairs -- and not the elevator as Jeff Lewis suggested. They even had time to pose for pictures with the fire truck and in the stairwell. Good thing there wasn't a real fire.

The fire alarm on "Watch What Happens: Live" officially makes the phenomenon of fire alarms on talk shows a trend. It started with "Conan" last week. Who wants to pick up the baton and run with it next week?

Luckily, all of this happened toward the end of the episode, so it didn't interrupt any of the interviews or other shenanigans. But it definitely made the show live up to its name. Tune in every Sunday through Thursday at 11 p.m. ET on Bravo to "Watch What Happens: Live."
