@midnight originally signed off in August 2017 after airing 600 episodes on Comedy Central, and now the show is coming to CBS to replace James Corden’s Late Late Show, as the network braces for the late night show host’s departure.

Stephen Colbert, who hosts The Late Show for the network, is on board as executive producer of the revived program @midnight, but no word has been issued as of yet for who is hosting the variety game show. @midnight, which launched in October 2013, aired Mondays through Thursdays on the basic-cable network, with host Chris Hardwick asking internet-themed questions to three comedian guests. Hardwick is not expected to have direct involvement in the new iteration of @midnight. The show originally gained popularity from Funny or Die and went on to win two Emmys for creative achievement in interactive media social TV experience over the course of its initial run.
