Chris Hardwick’s heartfelt message on Talking Dead

Sad things are sad, right? This thing is especially sad.

Chris Hardwick is having a great year career-wise. He hosts a wonderfully nerdy podcast, two post-show programs on AMC and his recent gig on Comedy Central was just picked up for a second season after its overwhelming success with viewers.

Cue the sad: On Sunday’s episode of Talking Dead, Hardwick pulled at our heartstrings during the final moments when he revealed his father, Billy Hardwick, had passed away suddenly just one day before. Yes, I cried. 

Hardwick left viewers with a touching message, which I’ll allow you to see for yourself. My thoughts are with him.
