This past week the featured bookings revolved around a scientist who also plays one on TV. Mayim Bialik. The Big Bang Theory actress plays a neuroscientist on the show and has a Ph.D. in the discipline as well. She also recently released her second book on human growth and development, Boying Up. Between that and the end of the latest season of The Big Bang Theory and Bialik was everywhere late last week. On May 10th she was on Live with Kelly and Ryan as well as The Talk. Friday, May 11th she visited with Stephen Colbert.
Stephen Colbert also started last week with science and technology guests. Bialik’s Big Bang co-star Jim Parsons was on the May 7th program along with Redditt co-founder Alex Ohanian.
Westworld continues to promote its new season. Two of the actors portraying robots continue to promote the show. Jeffrey Wright was on the May 7th edition of Late Night and Thandie Newton appeared on the May 9th edition of The Late Late Show.
Last, but probably not least, Bill Nye visited the Desus and Mero show over on Viceland (While I think all late night programs are NSFW in parts, this program covers very adult topics). He was the featured guest on the May 7th program. The latest season of Bill Nye Saves the World is now available on Netflix.
