Science and Technology Guests on Late Night, Week of December 26

Very little new this week in the listings, and Conan as well as the Comedy Central programs are pre-empted this week.  The MythBusters marathon continues, of course, as airing over 250 hours takes a bit of time.

There is a new StarTalk episode tonight, featuring Neil deGrasse Tyson’s interview with Defense Secretary Ash Carter.  The episode will cover future warfare as well as current uses of satellites and space technology to support the military.

This week’s repeats feature several science and technology-themed guests and segments.  Rami Malek of Mr. Robot is on again with Jimmy Kimmel tonight (Monday).  With Passengers now in theaters, you can revisit some late night appearances of the two leads.  Chris Pratt’s Tonight Show appearance will re-air on Tuesday, and Jennifer Lawrence’s latest appearance with Jimmy Kimmel will air again on Thursday.  Likewise, Hidden Figures is now out in limited release and you can catch a repeat of star Taraji Henson’s appearance on Late Night this Thursday.

Thursday is the big night this week, as The Late Show will re-air its December episode with Vice President Biden.  One segment of his interview involves the Cancer Moonshot and the recently signed into law Faster Cures legislation.  Finally, Alton Brown’s recent appearance on Last Call will air again late Friday night.
