Courtney Scharf Discusses Famous TV Scientists Like Bill Nye

 - Sep 16, 2013
In a discussion on famous TV scientists, one name would clearly stand out amongst his competitors: Bill Nye the Science Guy. The PBS icon gained popularity on television and in classroom videos across North America. The charismatic science star is set to appear on the newest season of Dancing with the Stars.

The small screen veteran has also appeared in a number of pop culture parodies and interpretations, although on an involuntary basis. Whether this is as a superhero, an auto-tuned mashup or prayer candles, Bill Nye is everywhere. When other television programs are looking for a voice of reason, on the news or in a Gillette commercial, he wins out over other famous TV scientists as a correspondent.
