Chris Hardwick is well-versed in leading in-depth conversations about zombie hordes ("Talking Dead") and shifty lawyers ("Talking Saul"). He adds a new batch of bizarre characters to his lexicon as host of "Talking Preacher," a live aftershow that provides instant analysis of the season premiere and finale of AMC's supernatural, darkly comedic "Preacher." Hardwick panels a discussion that features series cast, creators, producers and celebrity fans. Guests include star Dominic Cooper and executive producers Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Sam Catlin.
The popularity of AMC's "The Walking Dead" aftershow "Talking Dead" -- and specifically of host Chris Hardwick's conversationalist ability to bring out the best in guests -- has moved the network to create a year-round talk franchise. Each hourlong episode features Hardwick talking with a single guest (or series cast) from across the entertainment landscape. The in-depth interviews highlight the host's irreverent, authentic take on pop culture today, and audience interactivity affords fans a fresh destination to celebrate their favorite pop icons.
Chris Hardwick is more than happy to host this after-show for "The Walking Dead" franchise that serves as a platform for fans to further dissect the enormously popular zombie apocalypse shows. He's a big fan himself, after all. The bonus, he says, is now he gets paid to talk about something he'd normally be discussing with his friends anyway. "Talking Dead" airs live immediately following Sunday night presentations of "The Walking Dead" and its spinoff, "Fear the Walking Dead," and features Hardwick recapping the most recent episode, talking with fans, actors and producers, and taking questions and comments from viewers.
Experienced TV host Michelle Collins and "Bachelor" alumnus Sean Lowe host a post-show discussion of each week's episode of "Bachelor in Paradise," alongside cast members and celebrity fans.

The program comes from Embassy Row, the company behind the Emmy-nominated "Talking Dead" and "Watch What Happens Live."
Reality-TV star Tanisha Thomas ("The Bad Girls Club") and TV personality Ben Aaron host this daily talk show that offers a comedic look at some of the bizarre moments that happen on TV. Thomas and Aaron inject their opinions -- and jokes -- into clips that are pulled from talk shows, reality shows and even news broadcasts. The hosts sometimes get the inside scoop from the featured bits as people in the clips visit the program to explain what went on. Aaron also heads out of the studio for man-on-the-street segments. The show is filmed on what is described as a "newly designed state-of-the-art set" that allows the hosts to spontaneously interact with the studio audience.
Improv actor and comic Stephen Colbert flexes the hosting muscles he honed over nearly 1,500 episodes of the popular and critically celebrated "The Colbert Report" at the helm of this long-running late-night talk show.

Joining Colbert is his bandleader, Julliard-trained Jon Batiste, and house band Stay Human. The show is filmed in New York's famed Ed Sullivan Theater, the longtime home of "The Late Show."
