Welcome to Hardwatch: The Chris Hardwick Birthday Edition.
It’s about that time to be thankful here in the good ol’ USA, and here’s a little list of places you can be thankful you can catch Chris Hardwick this week!
First up, be thankful and turn on the TV tonight at 10pm to catch the penultimate episode of Talking Dead before the show’s midseason finale which airs next week. Tonight our fearless leader will discuss the events that happen on The Walking Dead with Sonequa Martin-Green (aka the show’s Sasha Williams), Christian Serratos (aka Rosita Espinosa) and our pal Paul F. Tompkins. We cannot wait to see what PFT will bring to the Talking Dead couch!
If you’ve been missing out on some @midnight episodes this month, be thankful that the show will be re-airing last week’s epic Reno 911! reunion on Monday night with Deputy Wiegel, Deputy Junior and Lieutenant Dangle in all their khaki-clad glory. Tuesday night you can catch Jim Gaffigan, Kyle Kinane and Michael Ian Black from the show’s New York City week. There’s also an excellent cameo by Ben Stiller you should not miss. And Wednesday night you can see last week’s amazing episode with Pete Holmes, Ron Funches and Steve Rannazzisi. They’ll make you laugh. The internet videos they comment on will make you cringe. It will be a good time all around! The show returns with new episodes after the Thanksgiving holiday.
Before you attempt to brave the crowds during Friday’s sales, be thankful you have not two, not three but FOUR incredible episodes of the Nerdist Podcast to look forward to as you fight off your fellow shoppers in what we can only imagine will be a scene straight out of The Walking Dead but hopefully less gory. This week, your earholes can look forward to hearing Chris chat it up with John Cleese (YES THAT JOHN CLEESE!), Adam West (OMG BATMAN!?), Joe Lo Truglio of The State and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and finally Dumb and Dumber To‘s Rachel Melvin. Whether you’re putting these great shows in your earholes before you put turkey and pumpkin pie in other holes or not, these are all going to be great shows to be thankful for by the time you’re done with them.
And ICYMI, our fearless leader announced his new tour this week. Make sure you read up on all the dates and locations so you know exactly where to go if you want to get Funcomfortable with Chris in 2015!
As always, follow Hardwick on Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram for all the latest happenings. There have been some super entertaining birthday pictures up there this week. Here’s what happened when we nerdy minions attempted to help decorate (just ignore the Santa hat):
