Plot Synopsis

Each weeknight (Mon-Thu) at midnight ET/PT, Chris Hardwick hosts @MIDNIGHT WITH CHRIS HARDWICK, a fake game show that uses the day's biggest stories in social media and pop culture to challenge comedians to make witty and outrageous comments, as they vie to be crowned the funniest of the night. In each half-hour episode, comedians try to prove who's the funniest by slashing the craziest, most absurd news and posts that social media has to offer: from celebrity Twitter tantrums to the bizarre Yahoo Answers to rich kids on Instagram. The first episode featured Doug Benson, Natasha Leggero, and Kumail Nanjiani, with the following comedians scheduled to appear in subsequent programs: Kurt Braunohler; Andy Daly; James Adomian; June Diane Raphael; Kyle Kinane; Tom Lennon; and more.
On Tuesday, July 7, 2015, Comedy Central announced that it renewed @MIDNIGHT WITH CHRIS HARDWICK for a third season with an order for a 40-week run that will air throughout 2016.
