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.


What is, LeVar Burton’s reaction to not making it to final Jeopardy

When Jeopardy announced that they were looking for guest hosts, LeVar Burton’s fans started a petition to get him the job. They succeeded. So much so, they were hoping that he would be offered the position permanently.

Yesterday, there was a report that they are not going with the fan-favorite. Instead, they are in serious negotiations with the game show’s EP Mike Richards. As soon as they heard, they ran to social media to protest about the decision.

When Burton woke up to find himself trending, he had some sage words for his admirers. “I have said many times over these past weeks that no matter the outcome, I’ve won,” he wrote. “The outpouring of love and support from family, friends, and fans alike has been incredible! If love is the ultimate blessing, and I believe that it is, I am truly blessed beyond measure.”

Now you can see why they love him so much.

Personally, I think they should continue auditioning. I would like to see Neil deGrasse Tyson and Rivers Cuomo give it a try, while my friend said they should try out some local news people. What do you think?
