Only one thing is certain about fall and winter: seasonal coffee flavors. And as frustrating as they can be (seriously, why can't we have pumpkin spiced lattes year round?), just be glad that we don't have any of the flavors suggested by the panel of comedians on "@Midnight."
The show, which follows Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert on Comedy Central, has tapped into a resource currently unexploited by television: Comedians who totally kill it on Twitter. During the show's segment #HashtagWars, host Chris Hardwick asked comedians Jonah Ray, Ali Wong and Howard Kremer what #BadCoffeeFlavors they would tweet. (Verbal Twitter: What a novel concept!) Their suggestions of "Blumpkin Spice Latte" and "White Power Mocha" are unlikely to hit Starbucks anytime soon, but certainly made us laugh.
The show didn't end there, though: Twitter users following along were able to join in the fun during the show and the next morning. Some typical responses:

We recommend "@Midnight," both for the half-hour of comedy during the show as well as the laughs it inspires after the fact. Check it out on Comedy Central at, uh, midnight.
