What’s going on with StarTalk? According to The Hollywood Reporter, the National Geographic TV show is in limbo amid allegations of misconduct against host Neil deGrasse Tyson.
The late night talk show features in-depth conversations between Tyson, a renowned astrophysicist, and guests like George Takei, Norman Lear, Christopher Nolan, and President Jimmy Carter.
National Geographic Channel has pulled recent episodes of StarTalk because of a recent report alleging Tyson of sexually inappropriate behavior towards two women. The network says the TV show will be off the air until an investigation into the allegations is completed:
In order to allow the investigation to occur unimpeded we chose to hold new episodes of Star Talk until it is complete. We expect that to happen in the next few weeks at which time we’ll make a final decision.”
