"It's 11:59 and 59 seconds..." Chris Hardwick announces at the opening of @midnight.
Except it's actually 4:30 in the afternoon on the efficiently tiny Hollywood set of Comedy Central's addictive game show, which airs Monday-Thursday at, well, midnight. For host and executive producer Hardwick, @midnight is the closest embodiment to who he is, aside from his stand-up comedy.
"@midnight has the most essential qualities of my personality," Hardwick tells TVGuide.com. "I love game shows, I'm a child of the Internet and comedy and also British panel shows..."
"Selfie" may have been declared the 2013 word of the year, but the social media form of self-validation is still going strong. On Sunday night's Oscars telecast, host Ellen DeGeneres made her way into the crowd and made some of Hollywood's biggest stars an offer they couldn't refuse ...

Bravo's Andy Cohen is not a shy man.
So he was a perfect candidate for TVGuide.com's new Watchlist feature, in which notable TV personalities tell us their favorite TV shows, and why they love them. As the executive vice president of development and talent and host of the network's myriad Real Housewives reunion specials and the late-night talk show Watch What Happens Live!, it's clear that Cohen knows what makes for good television. Among his picks:
Kevin Beggs, the president of Lionsgate's television group, may have helped introduce the world to some of the most culturally literate shows on TV, but when it's time for him to name his favorites, he recalls with glee an episode of Family Guy and utters just four words: "Bird Is the Word".
The most fun part of launching TVGuide.com's new mobile app is getting to have unexpected, enlightening conversations about TV with the incredibly smart, talented people who make it. That's why we're thrilled that Beggs, aka the man who has ushered shows like Mad Men, Weeds and Nurse Jackie into the cultural consciousness, has agreed to curate a channel on the app for us. And why it's such a kick to find out that he's a Family Guy fan. "Seth MacFarlane has turned digression into an artform," he says. Beggs' next project, Nashville, premieres on ABC on Oct. 10 at 10/9c. (Full disclosure: TVGuide.com is owned by a partnership of Lionsgate and JP Morgan's One Equity Partners.)
But let's get down to brass tacks. Can he tell us all kinds of incriminating stories from behind the scenes of Mad Men? "There are many, but I would be killed if I divulged any of them," he jokes.
Here's Beggs' full list. Watch his video introduction to his watchlist below.
