About the show
An American science-themed late night talk show, Star Talk has made its original debut on National Geographic in the spring of 2015, and launched its 10-episode third season on September 19, 2016. It is executive produced by Neil deGrassi Tyson, Helen Matsos, Brian Lovett, Michael Kovnat and Drew Pulley. The series originated from Tyson’s popular eponymous podcast.
There are four sections to each episode of this panel discussion series that usually features an expert, and a comedian besides the scientist host – Space, Planet Earth, Being Human and Futures Imagined. There are also comedic bits interspersed throughout the episodes. The program is hosted by astrophysicist and pop culture phenomenon Neil deGrasse Tyson, and its current season featured Whoopi Goldberg as a guest in the premiere episode, and Mayim Byalik and Philipe Petit in the subsequent weeks. The guest list during the previous installments included Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Dan Savage, David Byrne, Susan Sarandon, and other famous people from various walks of life.

The show has been garnering mostly positive reviews: 7.9/10 on IMDb and 60% on Rotten Tomatoes. Viewership averages are hovering in the 200,000 area, and while ratings do not seem particularly strong, Tyson is the face of popular science in the United States in the recent years thanks to his popular podcast and other accessible and entertaining attempts to make science come alive for the general public.
