Comedian appears as Chad Softwick to debut the new, not real spinoff “@midday” on OWN, but things get a little dark
Ferrell also debuted the new, warm fuzzy version of “@midnight” host Chris Hardwick — Chad Softwick, who has been tweeting adorable baby animal pictures from @Softwick since Wednesday.
So, naturally, the first game of the night was easily the most adorable one that's ever been featured on the @midnight stage: “Cute or Too Cute?”
“We don't want to offend anyone, and everything we do will have an inspirational message!” Softwick said, which is pretty much in line with Oprah's overall agenda.
But Softwick soon revealed a darker side to working for the Queen of All Media.
“Do you know what it's like working for OWN, the OWN Network!?” Softwick asked.
“Oprah's one tough son of a bitch!”
Ferrell's Funny or Die produces “@midnight” for Comedy Central. We just hope Oprah is in on the joke.
