Chris Hardwick‘s show @midnight will be ending on Comedy Central after four years and 600 episodes.
The series finale is set to air on Friday, August 4.
“@midnight has meant the world to me these last four years,” Chris said in a statement to Deadline. “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,” he added. “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.”
Chris’ schedule has gotten exceptionally busy lately with his Talking franchise on AMC and his job as the host of NBC’s The Wall.
