Some shows are off this week in connection with last Thursday’s Thanksgiving holiday. Of this week’s repeats, none are worth noting here.
There are two items last week worth noting. Drunk History, a Comedy Central program, aired an episode focused on space. The segments focused on Wernher von Braun, Carl Sagan and Anne Druyan, as well as Alexei Leonov conducting the first space walk. And on the November 25 edition of the Late Show, Stephen Colbert noted the recent National Institutes of Health action to retire its last research chimps. In a show of solidarity Colbert released the show’s test ape.
As it happens, the science and technology guests this week are in the daytime. Tomorrow Neil deGrasse Tyson will be on The View. Tuesday we have another appearance from a cast member of The Big Bang Theory, when Kunal Nayyar appears with Ellen DeGeneres. On Friday Chi-Lan Lieu makes one of her semi-regular visits to The Talk as a technology correspondent.
