TV Notes

Here’s an alert on a couple of upcoming TV events. These are a little off topic, but some of you will be interested.

I’ve heard a rumor that friend of BoF, Phil Plait, the Bad Astronomer, will be on Is It Real? on the National Geographic channel. The program is about life on Mars. I don’t know if the show is any good. I do know that they have the crackpot Richard Hoagland on the program, promoting his thoroughly-debunked delusions of a face on Mars. Then supposedly Phil Plait comes on briefly at the end of the program to debunk it yet again. The show airs on Jan. 27th at 2:00 PM Pacific time and again on Jan. 30th at 11:00 AM Pacific (check your local listings to confirm your local time).

James Randi is supposed to make another appearance on Anderson Cooper 360. It was originally scheduled for last night (Jan. 24), but got delayed. I’m not sure when. He was last on that program just last Friday, where he thoroughly trounced alleged-psychic Sylvia Browne. Phil Plait has the video of that appearance.
