With today being Labor Day in the U.S., many shows are in repeats tonight. As they did with the Republican National Convention last week, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report will broadcast Tuesday through Friday this week rather than their usual Monday-Thursday schedule.
In this week’s repeats, you can see (for the third time) both Dr. Drew Pinksy and now-disgraced science author Jonah Lehrer on Wednesday night’s Carson Daly program. (I characterized Lehrer as a proper science and technology guest back in June, so I should make note of his recently uncovered failings.)
For original programs this week, the place to be is Conan on Tuesday. That night David Mizejewski, a naturalist with the National Wildlife Federation, stops by to visit. Yes, it’s an animal expert. But with the top science and technology content providers focused on the Democratic convention, there won’t be much this week. The only other entry is on the same program as Mizejewski. Kunal Nayyar, who plays one of the many scientists on The Big Bang Theory, will also be on Conan Tuesday night.
