Comedy Central Greenlights Late Night Show With Chris Hardwick and Orders Pilot From Will Gluck and Conan’s Scott Gairdner

As more networks are either expanding their comedy programming are entirely rebranding themselves as a comedy focused channel, Comedy Central has made a lot of great moves over the last year in what is getting to be one crowded race for comedy on television.

Today, they’ve ordered both an animated pilot from Will Gluck and Conan writer Scott Gairdnerand added another late night show hosted by Chris Hardwick and produced by Funny or Die/Robert Ben Garant/Thomas Lennon.

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out in the coming months.
