It will be on at 12 am following ‘Colbert,’ and co-produced by Nerdist, Tom Lennon & Ben Garant and Funny Or Die. As per the content, Deadline reports, “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.”
In the past on his podcast, Hardwick described his Comedy Central pilot as a pop culture spin on The Daily Show and also likened it to ‘Attack of the Show.’ How much of that remains is to be seen. This will be his third on-going chat show across three different networks.
Even more interesting is it puts Hardwick in direct timeslot competition with fellow Nerdist network podcaster and friend Pete Holmes.
Comedy Central has decided not to renew the series. The second half of season 7, beginning June 19th, will be its last.
Comedy Central’s EVP of Programming Dave Bernath views the network’s decision as “the natural end” to the show’s improbable comeback. “That’s a helluva run that few shows achieve, and especially given the fact that it came back to life, it’s really an amazing story,” he says. “I’m more thankful and feel a sense of gratitude toward the whole process — and that we found a way to keep going for 52 more episodes — than I really am even thinking about the ending. It’s a blessing that it came back and lasted so long.”
On today’s special edition of The Nerdist Channel’s ALL-STAR CELEBRITY BOWLING, the industrious cast of Comedy Central’s Workaholics (Adam DeVine, Anders Holm, Blake Anderson, and Kyle Newacheck) take on Chris Hardwick, Chris Hardwick, Chris Hardwick and uhh… Chris Hardwick!

The bad news it, tomorrow night’s Key & Peele is the last episode of the second season. But the good news is, the show has just been picked up for a thirteen-episode third season!
“We are so thrilled about the pick-up and want to thank COMEDY CENTRAL for FOUR MORE YEARS!” said Key and Peele. “Oh wait, what’s that? One more year? Oh….ok, that will work too.”
