Some shows will be in repeats this week in advance of the U.S. Independence Day holiday. Of this week’s repeats, you can catch Silicon Valley actor Kumail Nanjiani on tonight’s (Monday’s) @midnight repeat. Nanjiani was promoting a different project. You can also see Dominic Monaghan’s March appearance with James Corden on Wednesday. He was promoting his recent film where he plays a worker at a nuclear power plant.
For new content, we have to go to an old standby on this list – Neil deGrasse Tyson. He is promoting a new book, and will visit The View on Tuesday.
The summer continues to offer weak gruel in terms of science and technology content. Yes, on tonight’s (Monday’s) edition of The Late Show, Stephen Colbert will talk with Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani. However, it will likely focus on Nanjiani’s new film, The Big Sick, and not his role as a Silicon Valley tech executive. Nanjiani continues his press tour on Thursday’s edition of Late Night, and Friday’s edition of The View. You stand a better chance of getting Silicon Valley discussion with Thursday’s repeat of Last Call, where you can see Thomas Middleditch’s latest appearance.
In other repeat news, you can (re)see Kunal Nayyar of The Big Bang Theory on Thursday’s Ellen program.
The new guest of note this week is Tatiana Maslany. She plays several different clones in Orphan Black, and will be on with Jimmy Kimmel Wednesday night. It seems fitting that once again she carries the weight of several roles at once.
Last week’s drought of guests continues, regrettably.
The one item I can find that fits is from tonight’s (Monday’s) edition of @midnight. Silicon Valley actor Kumail Nanjiani appears on the program, but he is there with a co-star from his upcoming film The Big Sick. If and when the summer movie promotion machine gets to any science and/or technology themed films, I’ll make note of them here. But that hasn’t happened just yet.
While the Memorial Day repeats are over, the listings this week are anemic where science and technology guests are concerned.
Silicon Valley is well represented this week. Tonight’s (Monday’s) Last Call repeat features lead Thomas Middleditch, and co-star Zach Woods will be on Tuesday’s new episode of Conan.
Tatiana Maslany was on Live with Kelly and Ryan earlier today. She plays several different characters (clones) on Orphan Black. The show starts its final season soon.
And that’s it. I hope the drought is temporary, but that’s just a guess.
