    A new 'Cosmos' will be on TV - NBC News

    Three decades after Carl Sagan's original "Cosmos," a new version is heading for the Fox TV network in 2013 ... with some fresh surprises in the mix.One of the biggest surprises apparently has to do with the guy who helped get the series...

    This is pretty great news. It'll be airing on National Geographic. Fox actually does something right.

    Tyson discusses how much of an influence Carl Sagan was on him:

    I can't recall a single time I've seen him and it be disappointing. I really hope the series goes well for him.

    Im a big fan. My family watches Dr. Tyson on PBS Science Now. My daughter actually demands to see his show. I hope this show gets off the ground. A little leary about it being on FOX, but at least they giving the brotha a format.

    Peace,

    I like this brother. Fox has done something good outside of sports for a change.
