Chris Hardwick’s late night Comedy Central show gets a Twitter inspired name

Last month, Comedy Central announced that Chris Hardwick signed a deal to host a late-night talk show that would follow The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report four nights a week. So for those of you, who have been anxiously awaiting more details, wait no more!

The show is going to be titled @Midnight. The title tells us two important clues about the show. The first is that the show will air at midnight (obviously) and two, that Twitter, will play a major role. While Comedy Central is keeping most of the details under a tight wrap, Hardwick’s announcement about the show gave inkling to a sort of “rapid-fire game show” that will feature the craziest of social media content- I’m guessing Amanda Bynes will win in a few categories.

The show which will be Co-produced by Funny Or Die and and executive produced by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (Reno 911!, Night at the Museum) will appear on your TV screens later this fall.
