As expected with the Christmas holiday, late night programs were in repeats, if not pre-empted, this past week. Of the repeats, one of note is Jeffrey Wright on the December 28 edition of The Real. Wright was promoting a documentary he produced, but he also plays a robot on Westworld.
The MythBusters megamarathon continues on Science Channel. While not *every* episode will be aired (the 2017-2018 episodes with hosts Jon Lung and Brian Louden will not air, but are available through the Science Channel website with a cable log-in), you will be primed and ready for the new series MythBusters Jr. when it premieres January 2nd. First generation MythBusters host Adam Savage is mentoring a crop of teen and pre-teen MythBusters in this series.
