The Chris Gethard Show Wiki is currently in development and we are building templates to help structure the site. This is a work-in-progress guide for people who are interested in helping the wiki grow. For now, this page is going to be restricted to article types that have been finalized. For example, we're not entirely sure how we want to structure pages for musical guests yet.

If you need something to do, the Tasks category is pretty much crammed full of them. You can also check out Wanted Pages if you want to start an article from scratch.


Pretty much every single episode needs work done at some point. If you want to watch an old episode and write up some details about it, that would be greatly appreciated. There is a list located here of articles that still need sections filled out. When every section has been filled out as thoroughly as possible, please cross the episode off of that list.

Here is a guide to the standard layout of an Episode page, and how to fill out the individual fields. The best current example of what these pages should look like is The First Episode.

{{Episode Infobox

{{TCGS Episodes}}

The following templates should be used if a section has not been filled out yet. They will automatically add that page to a category in Tasks for sections that have not been filled out.

  • {{Missing Audience}}
  • {{Missing Bits}}
  • {{Missing Callers}}
  • {{Missing Cast}}
  • {{Missing Characters}}
  • {{Missing Crew}}
  • {{Missing Gallery}}
  • {{Missing Guests}}
  • {{Missing Intro}}
  • {{Missing Links}}
  • {{Missing LLC}}
  • {{Missing Musical Guest}}
  • {{Missing Notes}}
  • {{Missing Quotes}}
  • {{Missing Synopsis}}
  • {{Missing Videos}}

If a section cannot be filled out because it is not applicable to that episode, we have templates that will generate an automatic explanation. We use these so we can avoid deleting fields on the page layout, because it is still notable when something normal does not happen. These templates just make it easier to fill out empty fields without having to write an original sentence every time.

  • {{No Audience}}
  • {{No Bits}}
  • {{No Callers}}
  • {{No Characters}}
  • {{No Crew}}
  • {{No Guests}}
  • {{No LLC}}
  • {{No Musical Guest}}
  • {{No Notes}}
  • {{No Quotes}}
