It looks like Viacom is ready to put Comedy Central on the Late Night map, the company has moved forward to have a midnight show hosted by comedian Chris Hardwick.
The show will be produced by Funny or Die and will be a half-hour installment that will launch in the fall. It is currently scheduled to air four-nights a week following the Daily Show and Colbert Report as a lead-in. Hardwick will get a producer credit on the show, though it doesn’t have a name at this time. Co-creators Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Grant (Reno 911) are on board to spearhead the project.
