The end of summer is on the horizon, and with that news means that some of my favorite Chris Hardwick beats will be back on my television in the very near future. Here are the places where you can find him this week and some news on places to get excited for in the coming weeks.
So as to not bury the lead, here’s our first taste of the new season of Talking Dead. Next Sunday, August 23rd, at 8pm/7pm CT, Talking Dead will have a Season 6 Preview Special. There’s not much news on what exactly will be discussed, but I can tell you that Scott Gimple will be the guest star. Also, AMC is letting members of their online forum submit questions already so get yourself over there to get yours in. The special episode of Talking Dead will be directly followed by the season premiere of Fear The Walking Dead.
Chris will be back on @midnight starting tomorrow night with a week of mysterious guests. I say that because there is only one day that I can tell you all three guest as of this moment. Monday night will have Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham joined by someone mysterious. Tuesday night Nikki Glaser and David Alan Grier will also be surprised by the third member of their competition. Wednesday night we know that Felicia Day (oh hey, have you read her new book?), Wil Wheaton and Jemaine Clement will go in eyes wide open. And the week finishes up extra mysterious with Natasha Leggero and two unknowns.
If you’re more of the listening type than the watching type, you can catch new episodes of The Nerdist Podcast with a return visit from Bobcat Goldthwait, Robert Rodriguez on his very first visit, a return visit from Chris’s old old pal Connie Britton, and a new Hostful for fun and laughs.
