Saying Goodbye to "@midnight"

by yrnej | created - 22 Jun 2016 | updated - 09 Aug 2017 | Public

@midnight (2013) ended its four-year run on August 4th. The show, hosted by all-around nerdy/cool guy, Chris Hardwick, became known for its groundbreaking integration of TV with social media, with viewers able to participate on Twitter in real time. It won two Emmys and at one point tied the Daily Show for the highest ratings of all basic cable shows in the coveted 18-34 demographic.

Chris Hardwick will still have all his other jobs hosting various after shows on AMC and The Wall on NBC, so we'll be able to enjoy him for years to come. But who knows when we will still get to enjoy so many giggles from Ron Funches in a 30-minute period*?

These comedians have "won the internet" at least five times on @midnight. Who do you consider the funniest?
