In the interview, Fallon called Hardwick’s show, “Fantastic. I’ve never seen a show like it.”

Chris described @midnight in the interview.

“It’s basically a game show where we take comedians, and then we pull stuff from the internet, and then we make jokes about it in a game show format. It’s really fun. It’s really silly.”
