Default Re: Science Saturday: Celestial Couch Potatoes (John Horgan & George Johnson)

The point I was trying to make, is that it seems to me that a weekly science roundup type program, wold work pretty well on cable. It would be a niche market, but I would think alot of NOVA viewers and BBC watchers would tune in. Even with slightly less gabbing (which I love) and tighter focus I could imagine John, George, Carl Zimmer, Sean Carroll etc., doing an excellent job with that sort of thing if they ever wanted to supplement their writing and could find an outlet willing to take a chance on some broadcast geekery.

[added:] I do agree with you on why it is far better suited for online but don't think that a tv crossover would be totally impossible.
