With both shows in New York, Late Night is expected to de-emphasize multiple celebrity guests in order to prevent booking wars with its Tonight Show sibling. Among the changes, Meyers could adapt “Weekend Update” into a nightly version for Late Night in the vein of The Daily Show, and perhaps interview more newsmakers, politicians and athletes (some of his biggest interests) and fewer stars.
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.
The Emmy-winning actor may replace Carson Daly in a late-night half hour interview program, according to one executive involved in the network’s program planning.
