Chris Hardwick is being replaced as host of The Talking Dead amid sexual assault accusations.

The hosting position will temporarily be filled by Yvette Nicole Brown as AMC continues to look into the claims against Chris.

In addition to The Talking Dead, Yvette will also host The Walking Dead Season 9 Preview Special.

The Preview Special will air August 5, while The Talking Dead will return after the premiere of Fear the Walking Dead on August 12.

    So cool. If you want someone’s job just say he raped someone, boom it’s yours.

    …I guess you don’t know the story…Yvette has nothing to do with Chris being suspended. ALSO, she is only interim host.

    I suspect they are just doing this to be PC. Those allegations were ridiculous and said more about her than they did about him and the texts she sent after all this alleged abuse…..

    She has always been better at it than he is anyway – glad the powers that be listened to the fans on this one.

  • Lexi

    She is only interim host. I think if they thought he was definitely guilty he would be sacked all together.

    It will take some time as they have to look into everything. She said she had further proof so maybe they have asked for it to see what she has, if any? They will also be checking to see if they texts are real he released as it’s easy to fake things these days.
