With yesterday being Labor Day in the United States, most of the late night programs were in repeats or off (some will be off all week). Last night (Monday) the Late Night rerun included an appearance by Bryan Fogel, who directed Icarus, a documentary concerning recent Russian athletic doping activity.
Regrettably, there is just one listing of note for this week’s programs. Sonequa Martin-Green, the lead of the new Star Trek show, will be on The Late Show Wednesday night. She plays Michael Burnham on Star Trek: Discovery, a Starfleet officer who is a trained scientist and the first officer of the U.S.S. Shenzhou. (Yes, the show is named after a different ship, for reasons that will no doubt become clear once the show premieres later this month, or you search the Internet for spoilers.) The show premieres on CBS (in the U.S.) on September 24 before moving to the network’s online streaming service.
