One thing that can be counted on for late night science and technology content remains cast members from The Big Bang Theory. Kunal Nayyar stepped up for the show last week, appearing on Conan May 1st.
Last Monday was a double dose of people who play doctors that switched careers. Lucy Liu stopped by Live With Kelly and Ryan on April 30. She plays Dr. Joan Watson, now more detective than physician, on Elementary. Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Doctor Strange in the Marvel films, was on The Late Late Show. Strange is now best known as a sorceror rather than a neurosurgeon.
I’ll close with recent segments of note from The Daily Show. In the April 18th episode the show ran a segment on the trend of ‘raw water’ – untreated water that some claim to have health benefits simply not possible. On April 19th the show ran another installment of “Today’s Future Now.” This one focused on odd environmental technologies – just in time for Earth Day.
