The New Year brings a dearth of science and technology guests for the late night programs. With Ferguson and Colbert off the airwaves, it’s not a surprise. The repeats and guest hosts are empty of such guests, so once again, we turn to The Daily Show.
Tuesday night, Cass Sunstein, legal scholar fond of behavioral policy, sits down with Jon Stewart. He has a new book about group decisions. On Thursday, Eddie Redmayne appears on The Ellen DeGeneres show. Whether he is still promoting his performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, or his upcoming role in Jupiter Ascending, I don’t know. I suspect the former, but I can’t rule anything out.
