Yvette Nicole Brown is set to temporarily take over Chris Hardwick’s hosting duties for AMC’s Talking Dead and The Walking Dead Season 9 Preview Special amid AMC’s investigation on allegations surrounding the former host.
Brown had already been announced to take over Chris Hardwick as moderator for this year’s SDCC The Walking Dead panel, an act which she described as a “filling in for a friend”. Hardwick was announced to no longer be hosting amid allegations of sexual assault and emotional abuse from his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra. Brown’s duties as host are allegedly temporary as the network completes an investigation of its own:
“Yvette Nicole Brown will step in as an interim guest host of The Walking Dead Season 9 Preview Special on August 5 and Talking Dead when it returns following the premiere of Fear the Walking Dead on August 12, as we work to complete our assessment related to Chris Hardwick”
Brown may be best known for her role as Shirley Benson in hit on-off again TV show Community, which she starred in until the end of the show’s fifth season. The Walking Dead fans will recognize her as she’s been a popular recurring guest for Talking Dead since the show’s second season.

9 Times Joker Fought The Justice League And Won
The Joker is more than just a thorn in Batman’s side. The Clown Prince of Crime has taken on various members of the Justice League and lived to laugh another day. His dastardly plots are dangerous for everyone, and sometime he wants to take on an opponent who doesn’t know him as well as Batman does. Out of the entire superhero community, Batman clearly knows Joker best, so it makes sense that sometimes he wants to stretch his creative muscles and try and take down other heroes.
The character may physically just be a human being, but he still poses a threat to god-like figures like Superman and Wonder Woman. He may hurt his hand if he directly punches the last son of Krypton, but that doesn’t mean he can’t hurt him just as easily as he can anyone else. No matter how confusing he may be, Joker’s an intelligent, ruthless villain who happily picks on anybody he wants.
