Chris Hardwick Announces ‘@midnight’s Renewal Through 2015
Here’s a clip from last night’s Tonight Show with guest Chris Hardwick, who announces at the top of his interview that his Emmy-nominated Comedy Central show @midnight has officially been renewed for a second season. According to THR, the new season will be in the form of a 40-week run throughout next year. “@midnight has been an absolute dream come true for me — a game show of internet jokes with my comedian friends,” Hardwick said. “I cannot thank Comedy Central enough for letting us continue. If they hadn’t, you can damn well bet that I would have forced people to come over to my house to play it anyway, for no audience, so everyone is thankful we dodged that bullet.”
@midnight is not the only Comedy Central show Hardwick is behind — it was also announced last week that he’s producing a new pilot called Sleight of Mouth starring magician/comedian Justin Willman, not to mention his AMC show Talking Dead and in-the-works web series All-Star Celebrity Bowling.
