  •  Cosmos on FOX is ironic (6+ / 0-)

    I hope it doesn't send Neil deGrasse Tyson the way of the dodo...

    •  Same network as The Simpsons ... (8+ / 0-)

      ... and other "subversive" cartoons.

      The new Cosmos is also written by the core of the same team that wrote the original Cosmos series.

      The irony is unmistakable though. If Faux News starts attacking Murdock's primetime cash cow, I'll be surprised to say the least. Although here in Utah, local wards of the you-know-what church attacked the original every single week. My co-workers parroted what they'd heard from their patriarchs throughout the run.

      Millions of us – the majority – must come together to insist that President Obama and the Democrats stand up and fight for the things we sent them there to do ... Michael Moore

      He's no Derrick Pitts. I'm still waiting for that cage match Derrick promised on Colbert in 2009!

      It's going to be simultaneously broadcast on the National Geographic Channel. The first episode is going to be on every Fox affiliated channel, even on Fox Sports 1 and 2, according to the ads I've seen throughout the week.
