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.
It turns out Chris Hardwick is also a super-fan of "Better Call Saul." The comic returns to AMC's live after-show franchise as host of the hourlong "Talking Saul," which serves as a platform to dissect the twists and turns of the "Breaking Bad" prequel. Hardwick, who also fronts the network's "Walking Dead" post show, welcomes cast members, producers, celebrity fans and others immediately following select "Better Call Saul" episodes. Viewers interact by submitting questions and comments.
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.
An extension of Bravo's "Watch What Happens" reunion specials and the original live online shows, this interactive series -- live on the East Coast -- is hosted by former Bravo programming executive Andy Cohen, who welcomes guests from some of the cable network's most popular series, as well as other entertainment stars, to chat about pop culture and celebrities in the news. In 2017, the show took on a new title -- "Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen" -- as part of an overhaul that included a remodeled studio offering a designated performance space for musical guests, a staple of most late-night shows.
Hosts Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert (the creator of the program, who also serves as an executive producer), Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and Eve discuss current events, pop culture, contemporary issues and family. In addition to interviews with celebrities and newsmakers, the program features musical performances, cooking segments and how-to demonstrations. The roster of celebrity guest co-hosts have included the likes of Carnie Wilson, Marie Osmond, Kelly Osbourne, and Molly Shannon.
