Comedy Central picks Chris Hardwick for first Last Night Show on network
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.
