Science and Technology Guests on Late Night, Week of December 10

Where science and technology on late night are concerned, 2018 is looking to go out with a whimper, and certainly not a bang.

For this past week I can find little to note in this post.  Ken Jeong, a former physician and current comic actor, makes two appearances.  He was on the December 11 editions of The View and Late Night With Seth Meyers. 

I had assumed that with a new edition of COSMOS coming early next year that host Neil deGrasse Tyson’s other television show, StarTalk, was on a break.  The program is on a break, but it is likely due to an ongoing investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against Tyson.  I say that because prior to the investigation being announced, StarTalk did air 3 episodes of its 5th season.  They are available to view online in the U.S. if you are part of a participating cable company.  Featured guests to date have been:

  • Chef Anthony Bourdain
  • Simon Helberg and Bill Prady from The Big Bang Theory
  • Joe Rogan, a mixed martial arts analyst and commentator

As the investigation is still ongoing as I write this, I don’t know when (or if) StarTalk will return.  The same is true of the next series of COSMOS.
