@MIDNIGHT Renewed for Second Season by Comedy Central

@MIDNIGHT Renewed for Second Season by Comedy Central

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.

    Someone else suggested this on twitter and I concur – a Thrilling Adventure themed panel with any of the following- Paul F. Tompkins, Paget Brewster, Marc Evan Jackson, Mark Gagliardi, Craig Cacowski…..throw some love to a member of the Nerdist Podcast family. Half of them have been on Drunk History so you get some Comedy Central synergy as well!

    I went and saw Nikki Glaser and Paul F. Tompkins at Just For Laughs because of @midnight.

  15. Natazshil says:

    I would highly enjoy a show with Rob Paulsen, John DiMaggio, and Maurice LaMarche. I think that they would be great. Plus I highly enjoyed the Robot Chicken episode.

    Ron. Funches is a stellar guest

  17. Captain Mcgloo says:

    Does this mean that sometime soon we could get Chris letting someone else host for a night and see him play the game with matt and jonah.
