America’s favorite astrophysicist is coming to late night.
Neil deGrasse Tyson will host the National Geographic Channel’s first ever late-night talk show featuring pop culture personalities and science commentary from people like Tyson’s buddy, Bill Nye.
There’s no word yet on what the intro will look like, but you can bet if it involves a model of the Earth spinning on its axis, the thing will be turning in the right direction. So, take that, Jon Stewart!
“Star Talk,” based on Tyson’s podcast of the same name, will premiere in April. Tyson made the announcement at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif., on Wednesday. The show will tape at the Hayden Planetarium, where Tyson serves as director.
“Cosmos allowed us to share the awesome power of the universe with a global audience in ways that we never thought possible,” Tyson said in astatement. “To be able to continue to spread wonder and excitement through Star Talk, which is a true passion project for me, is beyond exciting. And National Geographic Channel is the perfect home as we continue to explore the universe.”
Tyson had a massive hit when he revived Carl Sagan’s “Cosmos” last year. Even the president weighed in with an endorsement.
Moral of the story, you don’t lose humor as you age, and you certainly don’t lose you.
So I don’t usually post something quite this off topic, but this was too funny. My mind is blown, as I was looking up previous professors online and stumbled upon my ancient (love her) psych professor. Here she is literally doing stand-up at a comedy club around the same time I had her in class, and sure enough. She gave us this exact set DURING CLASS lecture. Her class was too involved for a psych intro class but now it all makes sense.
