Time for me to tell you about a show that I would bet few of you know about that is quickly becoming one of my favorite shows on TV. This is a comedy and it’s not a sitcom so you have to like things that are really funny for you to like this show so I know I’m taking a risk here recommending this show for a lot of you, but here it goes. I’m talking about a show on Comedy Central called @ Midnight.
@ Midnight stars comedian Chris Hardwick who hosts a comedy show that is somewhat like a game show but points are pointless and are arbitrarily awarded like on Who’s Line is it Anyway? You might remember Chris Hardwick from being the co-host of MTV’s Singled Out way back in the day. He’s now the head of a comedy empire at Nerdist.com and runs one of my favorite podcasts, Nerdist. He’s now got this show on Comedy Central that is truly taking advantage of his talents. @ Midnight airs, like it says, at Midnight but on the east coast so for us real Americans in the heartland, it’s on at 11:00. Each day they take a look at things that happened on the internet and 3 guest panelists come up with funny jokes about the day’s happenings. I laugh my ass off watching this show.
Here are a couple of clips from the show from one of their regular segments, hastag wars.

Now again, this show is only for people who like things that are funny. That is going to rule out this show for a lot of you I know but for the small group of you who do like to laugh at funny comedians, you will love @ Midnight. I can’t recommend this show enough.
If you are a fan of things that are funny, @ Midnight airs on Comedy Central weeknights at 11:00.
