Are you ready for some zombies?
AMC will air all six episodes of the first season of “The Walking Dead” on Sunday as a lead-in to the second season premiere at 9:00 p.m. AMC’s investment in the undead extends to a live talk show airing Sunday night at midnight. “Talking Dead” is hosted by Chris Hardwick. I set up a series recording for it on my DVR. The zombification continues on Monday with a 9:00 a.m. airing of “Night of the Living Dead” and an 8:00 p.m. showing of “Survival of the Dead.”
Chris Hardwick got a job at KROQ when he made a good impression during an interview to promote “Singled Out.” He wasn’t even supposed to be on the air but his co-host Jenny McCarthy convinced us to give him some air time. He was so funny that the program director called me to say he wanted to meet with Chris as soon as he got to work. He put Chris on the air for weekend and overnight shifts. I remember that one morning, Chris forgot to log out of his AOL account (c’mon it was the ’90s) and Jimmy Kimmel sent some funny instant messages from Chris’ account.
