Current estimate is that the airing will be in 2014 due to schedule delays.

In reply to this thread and to the SG "Cosmos" podcast around the same time ...
Well, Mr. Tyson is in the newz again, promotin' his new basics physics book.

Hmmm .... don't get me wrong... I have nothing against his kind. I mean, like, I voted for Barack both times. I mean he is The Man. If he somehow re-ran for anything, I'd wear his dirty drawers.
But I dunno about NdT. I mean the brothea may be better than Sagan. But after all, Carl got the PBS contact 'cause he filled the minority quota (Sagan was Jewish).
 PBS was progressive, man: I mean Sesame Street was full o' da underclass ... since the early 70's. Ernie was a wetback, right. And PBS even gave Morgan Freeman a break on The Electric Company ...

Hey, growin' up in rural Iowa, I never personally talked to a N---er 'till I visited the big city. But this over-representation of the Afro race gets us Whities all po'd ... and ... uh ... sways our votes for Trump.
2020 .... you bet.

Below ... the "READ" public service campaign from the 1980. Because most minorities are BORN handicap and need help with this basic skill:

Got that one. Left it on my wife's pillow while she was at work and sent a text. "Neil deGrasse Tyson" is waiting for you in your bed.

Uh, noted. Congratulations. I imagine posterity would breathe a sigh of relief.

As much as I enjoyed that rhetorical flourish, you're still expected to stick to the Forum Rules. If you wish to debate this further - although the 'flushed day' seemed like a great natural closing point to me - please open a thread in the Forum Admin and Rules sub-forum.
