Coming this fall to a television set near you – and because doing an epic hour-long comedy special wasn’t enough – our very own Chris Hardwick will be hosting/producing a brand new late-night show for Comedy Central. Airing  four nights a week at midnight this fall, following The Colbert Report, the untitled, but assuredly awesome show is co-produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Funny Or Die and has billion dollar screenwriters/Reno 911! creators Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant serving as executive producers/showrunners, so you know that this is coming from a proud pedigree of seriously funny folks. Formatted as a comedic panel show with plenty of social media integration throughout, the show sounds like the ideal opportunity for you to laugh in insomnia’s stupid face and tweet about it. In a word, #awesome. While we’ve been sitting on our hands about this exciting news for a while, we think Chris said it best:

And talk about it we shall. Are you excited to see Chris on Comedy Central? What would you like to see on the show? Let us know in the commentsb below!
