Most of the shows are back from their Independence Day-related breaks. Of this week’s repeats, Tuesday night you can see Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani’s April appearance on The Late Late Show. His co-star Thomas Middleditch is featured on Friday’s repeat of the same program. Thursday you can catch Alan Alda’s June appearance on Late Night. Alda is the founder of a center on science communication at the State University of New York – Stony Brook. He recently released a book on the subject.
Nanjiani is also featured on this week’s new programs. He’s on The Daily Show tonight (Monday) likely to promote his current film, The Big Sick. Also new this week is a return visit by sex expert Dr. Jennifer Berman to the Conan program. Regrettably, Conan O’Brien falls back hard on his repressed Catholic roots in these segments, so I’m skeptical that there will be much useful content.
I have noticed that Bill Nye Saves the World is planning to tape new shows later this month, but I’m not sure when Netflix will air them.
