Nerd TV

This makes me so happy: my pal Chris Hardwick -- look up "nerd" in the dictionary if you're not familiar with him -- is taking his gargantuanly popular Nerdist podcast to the TV airwavery:

W00t! This airs after Doctor Who on BBC America September 24 here in the States, and I will watch (though on my DVR as I'll be at TEDxBoulder talking about trying to save the world). I'll note this will be broadcast so it'll be PG-13 or so; that ought to be fun. His podcast is NSFW in much the same way that standing next to a gamma ray burst is Not Safe For Being Alive.

Chris is really, really funny and one of the few bigger Doctor Who fans than I am. And I am not at all jealous that his guests on the show will be Matt Smith and Craig Ferguson. Not at all.
