More Details on 'The Chris Gethard Show's Comedy Central Pilot

Last month, Chris Gethard announced that Comedy Central has ordered a pilot of his public access series, The Chris Gethard Show. Gethard held a Q&A after an episode of his show last night to share some more details on what to expect from the Comedy Central pilot. Here's what we know now:

The half-hour pilot may never air, whether Comedy Central orders it to series or not. The pilot will be more interactive than the public access version of the show, not less. It will still feature calls and live music. While the pilot won't air live, Gethard intends for the series to do so, if it gets picked up. The pilot taping is expected to be in the end of January, and it'll take place on a new set, not the Manhattan Neighborhood Network set.

If the show gets picked up, it will feature more celebrities, and Gethard says he would love to fight Pete Holmes in the pilot episode. If the show doesn't get picked up, there will be a few farewell public access episodes of The Chris Gethard Show before it ends for good.
