Nat Geo Latenight Series Hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson To Launch April 20

Nat Geo Latenight Series Hosted Neil

“StarTalk,” astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s new latenight series on National Geographic Channel, will start April 20, the cable network said Wednesday.

Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter, biologist Richard Dawkins, retired Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, producer Norman Lear, film director Christopher Nolan and “Star Trek” actor George Takei were announced as guests. Bill Nye the Science Guy is slated to make weekly appearances.

The hourlong weekly series is based on Tyson’s podcast of the same name. The host is expected to explore the many ways science and technology have influenced the life of his guests. After conducting the private one-on-one interview with the main guest, Tyson and a group of panelists, which will include a comedian co-host and various “influencers,”  will sit before a live studio audience at the American Museum of Natural History’s Rose Center for Earth and Space in New York City and chew over the topic of the week. Nye will offer perspective via a pre-taped segment.

The series will air Mondays at 11 p.m. and repeat Fridays at 7 p.m., the network said.

    I can’t wait to see this. Cosmos was brilliant, inspiring, and charming, and it provided a breath of fresh air in a world that seems to be growing more science-phobic as time goes on. I do wish he didn’t have that misogynist Dawkins on the show, though.

  7. Affie says:

    Don’t like this guy AT ALL. The mean tweet he sent out on Christmas about Jesus was just plain assholey.

  8. William says:

    Yeah, because his last show was such a big hit. Yawn. Hot air.

  9. LooLoo says:

    He’s an arrogant fool. Won’t be watching.
