Comedy Central has renewed Chris Hardwick’s @midnight, a series that, in theory, sounds like just about the worst thing ever (a Twitter-based game show), but in practice is actually quite entertaining, especially in a falling-asleep-in-front-of-the-TV kind of way. @midnight has been a ratings boon for the cable network, which initially picked up the show for a 40-week first season after a successful four-week trial run. The second season will also run for 40 weeks, which means 160 more opportunities to get your Anne Frank and/or Goodnight Moon-related puns on TV.
