That was certainly some welcome good news dropped by our own Chris Hardwick, on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon! Comedy Central has officially renewed fan favorite @midnight for a second season! Considering the series has been a massive hit since its premiere, takes over Twitter on a near nightly basis with brilliantly themed #HashtagWars, and was recently nominated for a freakin’ Emmy for Outstanding Interactive Series, this should come as no surprise.
Said Comedy Central, “Dominating the social media landscape in the late-night arena and receiving a 2014 Emmy® nomination, @midnight boasts the highest social engagement among all of the late night series, garnering more than 5 million mentions since its premiere in January and generating over 10 billion impressions.” You said it, Comedy Central.
We’d like to offer our congratulations to Chris and the crew as they head into a new season of internet-inspired shenanigans and, most likely, a whole new run of Tom Lennon losses. Maybe we’ll finally get a peek at Tuxedo Guys. Or Cowboy Guys. Hell, we’d even take Matador Guys. We just can’t wait to see what’s next.
@midnight airs weeknights at midnight on Comedy Central. Who has your favorite guest been so far? What would your dream panel be? Let us know in the comments below.
