Former “CBS Evening News” anchor Dan Rather continues to make the rounds to promote his new book Rather Outspoken.

Later that evening, Rather appeared on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” hosted by former CBS News staffer Andy Cohen. Rather, Cohen and singer John Mayer did a”shotski” of bourbon off of a ski (see photo below), and then Rather and Cohen reminisced about their time at CBS News. Cohen recalled that the one story he got to do with rather was a profile of an outspoken radio host named Don Imus:

- 'SNL' Lampoons CNN Alerts, Al Sharpton
- Colbert on 'Late Show': 'I Do Not Envy Whoever They Try to Put in That Chair'
- Did Pizza Hut Steal Neil Cavuto's Idea?
