Andy Cohen is a busy guy—but he's not too busy to find a guy!

The Watch What Happens Live host and best-selling author revealed to E! News correspondent Alicia Quarles Wednesday that he's on Tinder. Cohen, 46, said he is happy to meet a guy on the dating app, "as long as someone can meet me at midnight when I get off my show. Midnight's a fun time of night!"

"That's go-time! I'm ready to go!" he added. "I'm lit-up. I'm just off the air. I'm fresh." Calling himself "a late-night guy," Cohen told Quarles, "I did not move to this town to sleep. I have not gotten a good night's sleep in 25 years and I'm not going to start now with this freakin' radio channel."

The radio channel Cohen was referring to is Radio Andy, a SiriusXM station that features entertainment the host has personally curated. He will also host a weekly radio show exclusively on the 24/7 channel.

This isn't Cohen's first foray into radio. The St. Louis native hosted a five-week series of entertainment-themed live, call-in shows on SiriusXM. He also hosted a live on-air '80s prom-themed broadcast to celebrate the publication of his memoir, Most Talkative: Stories From the Front Lines of Pop Culture.

Radio Andy and Cohen's new radio show are scheduled to launch later this year.

Before then, however, Cohen will be hitting the road with Anderson Cooper for AC2: An Intimate Evening With Anderson Cooper & Andy Cohen—Deep Talk and Shallow Tales. "He and I are interviewing each other," he said. "It's the two of us on stage. We're starting our tour Saturday night at the Wang Theater in Boston of all places. Two gay dudes at the Wang Theater. I mean, can you imagine?"

Cohen and Cooper will make stops in Florida, Georgia, Illinois and North Carolina. "He and I have good chemistry. It just works," Cohen said. "We're really good friends, so we're taking the show on the road."

Playing matchmaker, Quarles said, "I think you guys would make a good couple!"

Cohen agreed. "I know. He has a partner," he said, referring to Benjamin Maisani.

However, the Bravo personality revealed they did give it a shot. "We were set up on a date. Not many people now this, but the way Anderson I met about 20 years ago is we were set up on a blind date," he told E! News. "It didn't take. It just didn't work. We're meant to be good friends and not boyfriends."
