Comedy Central announced today that @midnight with Chris Hardwick has been renewed for a fourth season. The order is for 40 additional weeks of the Internet-inspired improv comedy series, which will extend its run well into 2017.
@midnight has become a solid entry in Comedy Central's nighttime lineup over its three years on the air. The series ranks as the youngest-skewing and most-male comprised audience of any daily late-night show, as well as getting the most people involved socially, with higher Twitter activity than other late-night talk shows.
As its name suggests, the show has spent the majority of its run filling Comedy Central's midnight time slot. Though recently, @midnight was moved up to 11:30pm to fill the space left open by the cancellation of The Nightly Show. That move is likely temporary though, until the network can find a suitable replacement talk show to pair with The Daily Show.
