I’m genuinely excited for this. @midnight was one of my favorite game shows of the 2010s and I was pretty bummed when it was canceled. Now I gotta decide whether to resurrect my Twitter to win Hashtag Wars. :P

We have a host: comedian Taylor Tomlinson.

Comedienne
Comedienne is an outdated gendered term that has a tendency to imply inferiority. Comedian is correct.

I would hope one of the first things they do is announce that they're not going to use any content from "X" and focus on other social mediae.

But so many comedians base their whole routines about their X's.

would you have known that Taylor was a woman when all the descriptions (host, name and occupation) can be construed as male?
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.

I could see her photo and I can google her name, so what does it matter?

Most people I know named Taylor are women, but the picture of her chatting with Stephen Colbert pretty much spelled it out for me.

But it also doesn’t matter that much to me either.

Bumping this thread because we now have tape dates for After Midnight in Los Angeles. "Test shows" will be taped on January 11 and January 12, followed by the first "official" show on January 16.

https://1iota.com/show/1646/after-midnight

To be completely honest, though...while it will certainly be better than Comics Unleashed (not hard), am I the only one who can't see After Midnight as that great an idea? @midnight was great, but it was also representative of an era of the Internet that seems to me to be over. Hashtag Wars losing a lot of its luster now that Twitter has become X is just one example.

Still, I'm going to check After Midnight out, and am ultimately rooting for it to succeed - I get the feeling that if it doesn't, CBS will just give up on that time slot entirely.

I think the great thing about that timeslot is that it's somewhat experimental, so the bar might be kinda low ratings-wise. Not sure what ratings James Corden pulled, but as long as the dropoff from Colbert to Taylor isn't too steep I think CBS will be content.

Plus I imagine it can't be the most expensive show in the world, compared to a late night talk show.

/Am curious to see what happens with Hashtag Wars

I think the offerings both from The CW and Dropout over the past few years indicate that there is some demand for rapid/short-form comedy. The Internet-ness of @midnight was just the flavoring.

This will probably be just as much about viral online content as anything. The traditional offering just gets to come along for the ride.

There were reports around the time that Corden stepped down which said that CBS was losing upwards of $20 million a year on The Late Late Show, and presumably justified it as a promotional tool and for the viral sensations like Singing In Cars and Stopping Traffic With Showtunes.
