Published Jul 19, 2017After four seasons and a total of 600 shows, Comedy Central's @Midnight with Chris Hardwick is coming to an end.
The Hardwick-hosted interactive panel series will air its last week of new episodes beginning on July 31, wrapping things up for good on August 4 with its 600th and final show.
The comedian and TV host confirmed the news on Twitter.
Hardwick released a statement about the end of the show via Deadline. It reads:
@midnight has meant the world to me these last four years. It has been a dream to come to work 600 times to make inappropriate jokes about the Internet with my fellow comedian friends. I could not be more proud of this show, staff and crew and at the end of the day, I think we accomplished everything we wanted to accomplish. Spiritually it just feels like it ran its course — I'm not sure we had many more hashtag games in us (which may actually be a relief to anyone whose Twitter feed gets overrun every night).
I owe such a huge debt of gratitude to Comedy Central and Kent for taking a chance on the show, always being great partners and allowing us to exit mutually, which is rarely a gift you are given in this business. I will certainly miss awarding POINTS! to people nightly, so please understand if you see me randomly shouting it at strangers in public after August 4th.
Over the course of four seasons, @Midnight won two Creative Arts Emmys for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media Social TV Experience in 2015 and 2016.
@Midnight also boasted appearances from musically minded guests like "Weird Al" Yankovic, Jeff Tweedy, Neko Case, Aimee Mann, St. Vincent and J. Mascis.
Mac DeMarco is slated to appear on the upcoming July 27 episode, and you can see the other panelists that have been confirmed for the final weeks of the show over here.
