Oh, sure, @midnight with Chris Hardwick last night on Comedy Central would have been great if all we got was a panel of Rob Huebel, Michaela Watkins, and Doug Benson. But we also got Chad Softwick! THE Chad Softwick! And he unveiled, as we previewed yesterday, the @midnight spinoff @midday, on which everybody’s a hero and nobody gets offended! (Yeah, it’s a bit with Will Ferrell. I don’t have a poker face.)
Judge for yourself, clip-wise:
Will Ferrell Previews @midday – Cute or Too Cute
#HashtagWars – #EroticHistory
#FratLife – Orange Is The New Whack
New Groupons – Supercuts Bikini Wax
Unboxing Day – Furry Suit or Sex Doll

Next week’s tentative schedule is full of potential do-not-miss moments. Potential? How about just plain watch-the-hell-out-of-these: Monday, it’s a SMODtastic show with Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, and KROQ’s own Ralph Garman. Tuesday, Dominic Monaghan joins the Who Charted? team of Howard Kremer and Kulap Vilaysack. Wednesday, Wil Wheaton (I swear, I didn’t plan the Ws) and our own Matt Mira and Jonah Ray panel up. And Thursday, Nikki Glaser, Steve Agee, and Kyle Kinane do the honors. You will want to be at your TV sets on each of those nights at 12/11c on Comedy Central, right after The Colbert Report. Follow the show’s Tumblr and, of course, make sure you’re following the Twitter account. And if you want to see the show tape in person here in L.A., you can, for free; just click here for details.
