We’ve started counting down the days, but as far as we can tell it is not getting us new episodes of The Walking Dead any faster. The season starts October 12th on AMC, and will bring Chris Hardwick back to Talking Dead at 10pm immediately following the season premiere. We are excited! Here are all the spots you can catch him this week.
While neither show is back immediately this week, keep an eye out for coverage of The Walking Dead premiere event at Universal Studios in Los Angeles this Thursday night. Chris will be attending, and we are hoping for more pictures from The Walking Dead maze.
In addition to season premieres, @midnight is back this week with some great guests. Monday night, our pal Doug Benson is joined by Hari Kondabolu and Kyle Kinane. Tuesday night Chris will have Adam Newman, Mike Lawrence, and Heather Anne Cambell on the show. Tom Lennon, Cameron Esposito and Daniel Sloss will ring in a spooky October on Wednesday. And the week will wrap up with Tim Minchin and Rhys Darby.
There are some great Nerdist Podcast guests coming up this week including Dan Harmon, Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme from Chewin’ It With Kevin & Steve, and the lovely Rose McGowan. Also you should go back and listen to last week’s episode with Nick Frost. It was awesome in a very NSFW way.
As always, you can keep up with our fearless leader on Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr for the moment-to-moment goings on, and check back here on Friday for a wrap up the most gut-busting moments from this week’s @midnight.
