This past week all the CBS and Comedy Central programs were in repeats, limiting the possibilities for science and technology content. The Tuesday (April 3) repeat on The Late Late Show included an appearance by Johnny Galecki, who plays one of the scientists on The Big Bang Theory.
Regrettably, what new programs were on last week had no solid offerings to report. While I have not crunched the numbers, I suspect that 2018 is shaping to be the worst year in talk show science and technology content in the time I’ve been tracking this kind of thing. Sure, there are now new, limited run science-centric programs like StarTalk, but the broadcast networks and nationally syndicated programs appear to be slipping.
