First, a retrospective on last week’s programs. (Apologies for not posting them last week.) Yes, there were eclipse jokes, but most were some variation on looking at the sun without the proper equipment or a parallel with current events.
Last Thursday (August 24) The Late Late Show re-ran former Vice President Al Gore’s recent appearance to promote An Inconvenient Sequel. Tonight (Monday) The Late Show will re-air Mr. Gore’s recent appearance.
Last Tuesday (August 22) Jimmy Kimmel Live! re-ran the recent appearance by The Big Bang Theory actor Jim Parsons. Parsons plays a scientist on the show, and he narrated the recently aired Discovery documentary First In Human. The program focuses on the Clinical Center at the National Institutes of Health.
Focusing on the week ahead, repeats continue. Most of the shows should be back following Labor Day.
But there is a double dose of Neil deGrasse Tyson. He is on the new episode of The Daily Show tonight (Monday), and on Wednesday you can catch his June appearance on The View. On Friday you can see a new interview with Tatiana Maslany on Live with Kelly and Ryan. Maslany recently ended her run on Orphan Black where she played a number of different characters, each of them clones.
