In an effort to further solidify their hold on late night programming Comedy Central will be creating a new show hosted by Nerdist host and personality Chris Hardwick. You probably recognize Hardwick from Talking Dead, the somewhat talk show that would air after every episode of The Walking Dead discussing the goings-on in the series. Co-produced by Funny or Die the show will air at midnight following heavy hitters like The Daily Show and The Colbert Report and start this fall. Early word says the show will have comedy panels, whatever that means, and have a focus on social elements.
Personally I really enjoy Hardwick but usually on Youtube and rarely on the things I've seen him do on television. Glad to see him get this chance however and really hope he, and the Funny or Die group, can really put something good together.
