This week, 13-year-old Robert Irwin visited The Tonight Show (along with some of his cool animal friends), and he brought the same energy that made his late father Steve Irwin “The Crocodile Hunter” so beloved.

The network CBS has ordered a pilot for a new sitcom called Living Biblically, that, literally, is about living exactly as the Bible mandates. The show—which is being produced by The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki—is based on the book A Year of Living Biblically, in which journalist A.J. Jacobs chronicles his life of following every command of the Bible “as literally as possible.” The show’s actually been in development for a few years.
You may remember, Jacobs was featured on the cover of RELEVANT at the time, where he detailed more of the story. Discuss
A trailer for the second season of CNN’s historical documentary series Finding Jesus has been released, and it looks like an interesting examination of Jesus’ life. The show focuses on the historical impact of His ministry, and even looks for forensic evidence of events referenced in the Gospels.
The first trailer for Bill Nye’s new Netflix show, Bill Nye Saves the World has just been released. If the clip is any indication, the show will feature a lot of the elements fans of Nye’s early work are familiar with—mainly, cool experiments.
Though the trailer is relatively non-controversial, the producers previously said that the series would look to tackle some big issues: "Each episode of the series will tackle a topic from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths, and refuting anti-scientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders or titans of industry."
Since the start of the ‘Science Guy’ show, I’ve been on a mission to change the world by getting people everywhere excited about the fundamental ideas in science. Today, I’m excited to be working with Netflix on a new show, where we’ll discuss the complex scientific issues facing us today, with episodes on vaccinations, genetically modified foods and climate change. With the right science and good writing, we’ll do our best to enlighten and entertain our audience. And, perhaps we’ll change the world a little.
