Ex-Python Eric Idle’s 2016’s TV spectacular, The Entire Universe, which featured Noel Fielding in its cast, will be airing on PBS in the US on 22nd December.
The one hour show features British physicist Brian Cox doing his best to explain the secrets of the universe, in spite of a volley of interruptions from special guests Warwick Davis, Robin Ince, Hannah Waddingham, and of course – Noel.
When it aired in the UK we described it as having, “all the ingredients of classic early primetime Christmas entertainment shows from the 1970s: high-kicking musical numbers, daft jokes, guest stars in unexpected situations, and a side helping of gentle sauciness – underpinned with a healthy dollop of the unexplained/inexplicable, brought up to date with scientific interjections from the Prof.” You can read our review in full here.
The Entire Universe will be premiering on Friday, December 22, 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET (check local listings for details.)
