This week there will be plenty of reruns on the late night programs following the Fourth of July holiday. Add to that a shifted schedule for Conan, who will be broadcasting new shows from San Diego Wednesday through Saturday, in connection with this weekend’s Comic Con International. Saturday’s lineup is intentionally a mystery cast, so it’s possible that people from The Big Bang Theory or another science and Comic Con friendly show will show up.
In fact, aside from some of the daytime and morning talk shows, it’s all repeats this week. Even with Jon Stewart leaving in just over a month, The Daily Show will be off the next two weeks, along with The Nightly Show and @midnight.
Here are the science and technology guests of note you can catch again this week. The actors are from the usual shows.
Tuesday: Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex) on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley) on @midnight.
Wednesday: Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley) on The Late, Late Show.Thursday: Simon Helberg (The Big Bang Theory) on Last Call.
The new programs of note are the Thursday and Friday editions of The Talk. On Thursday, Michael Sheen will be on to promote the new season of Masters of Sex, where he plays sex researcher William Masters. On Friday Chi-Lan Lieu, the show’s technology correspondent, will make another visit.
