Comedy Central Has New Show to Follow 'Daily Show' and 'Colbert Report' NY Post

Comedy Central has developed a new nightly half-hour program that will follow Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report," which follows a long search, reports the New York Post.

The program will feature stand-up comedian Chris Hardwick, who is known for hosting "Talking Dead," a companion program to the AMC drama "The Walking Dead," the story says. The new show doesn't yet have a name.

The humor website Funny or Die will co-produce the program with Comedy Central. It will air Monday through Thursday and debut in the fall.
