So it looks like Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are getting their own Jimmy Fallon/Craig Ferguson: Nerdist honcho Chris Hardwick, in a show that will be co-produced by Funny or Die.
The untitled show, which will launch in the fall, will air four nights a week at midnight, following The Colbert Report, giving the network a 11 PM-12:30 AM block anchored by The Daily Show. Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant will serve as executive producers/showrunners on the Chris Hardwick show, returning to Comedy Central, where they co-created and starred on the cult series Reno 911! The show, Comedy Central’s first midnight strip, will be formatted as a comedic panel show that will have a heavy social-media presence integrated throughout.
I’m going to have to get one of fancy new DVRs capable of recording at least 5 shows at once now with all the good late night stuff airing these days. Geez.
Hitler, what do you think of the new Nerdist show on Comedy Central?
I have no idea what this means. He’s been acting so weird lately.
