A ’90s kid’s wet dream, it’s LeVar Burton and Steve Burns

If you were a kid in the ’90s, then you probably grew up watching Reading Rainbow and Blue’s Clues. LeVar Burton and Steve Burns were your heroes, and you wished that they could teach you together. Sadly, that never happened.

Never say never. Because here are they together at last, and Burns said, “What a thrill!!!” Not only for him but for us too!

What would be really thrilling is if they hosted a show together. They are two positive lights in a world of darkness. And we need that more than ever.


LeVar Burton reads Goodnight Moon to Neil deGrasse Tyson

What causes Neil deGrasse Tyson to go over the moon? LeVar Burton is reading him Goodnight Moon to help him fall to sleep!

While the scientist got his reading in person, we can still use it to help us fall asleep at night. I know it works for me! So try it for yourself tonight!


LeVar Burton used a non-Reading Rainbow word on The View!

LeVar Burton was on The View today, and Joy Behar asked the host of Reading Rainbow what he thinks about states banning books. He looked her dead in the eyes and said, “Bullshit!”

While that is not a word he could’ve said on his show Reading Rainbow, it is in the spirit of the series. Books are meant to tell a story whether we like what it has to say or not.

We can’t erase the feeling of that period in history, even if we wanted to. So only way to learn from our mistakes is to know what they are.


Star Trek: Picard will be reunited with some old friends for season 3

Paramount+ had some big news to share on First Contact Day (in exactly 41 years from today, humans will make contact with Vulcans for the first time) about Star Trek: Picard’s third season, and it is out of this world exciting.

Patrick Stewart will be joined by his Star Trek: The Next Generation co-stars, LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Jonathan Frakes, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis, and Brent Spiner.

“I remember watching the premiere of ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ almost 34 years ago with my father like it was yesterday. It was the spark that ignited my love for science fiction,” said Terry Matalas, season three showrunner and executive producer. “So, it’s most fitting that the story of Jean-Luc Picard ends honoring the beginning, with his dearest and most loyal friends from the U.S.S. Enterprise. It would be an understatement to say that giving these characters a proper send-off is an honor. The entire STAR TREK: PICARD team and I can’t wait for fans to experience this final, high-stakes, starship-bound adventure in season three!”

I know this news is huge because I sent it to my Trekkie friend, and he told me he needed to be alone with his Enterprise for a little bit. I could hear in his voice he was choked up about hearing that The Next Generation cast are coming together with Picard.

S2 of Star Trek: Picard is streaming now on Paramount+, with new episodes debuting every Thursday.


What is forget Jeopardy, LeVar Burton got a better hosting job?

Jeopardy’s loss is Scripp’s National Spelling Bee’s win. That is because LeVar Burton will be hosting the spelling competition, June 1st and June 2nd on ION and Bounce.

Some people might think the game show is a better gig, but not me! I love it! You never know what is going to happen next. Those kids are so smart, but they also have so much character. Exactly like Burton! And that is why he is the perfect MC for the event.
