@midnight Set To Broadcast Entire Episode Live Over Periscope

We’re guessing that might give them a little more breathing room when it comes to censors.

While doing a special live edition of @midnight with Chris Hardwick down in SXSW, Hardwick, Doug Benson, Arden Myrin, and Chris Cubas will mark a first in late night by broadcasting the whole episode exclusively over live broadcasting app Periscope.

As Periscope will be essentially utilized as an over-the-top service in this instance, it’ll be fascinating to see what @midnight​ does with no traditional commercial breaks or specific time limits, etc. while all still be a TV show being broadcast live.
