Everybody wants their own breakout original drama series, and TNT is hoping The Alienist is theirs. Not that they haven’t had good original shows before, but none of them have reached the heights of HBO’s, AMC’s, or FX’s efforts. The Alienist certainly has all the right ingredients to pull it off: the promise of a twisty mystery, gruesome crime scenes and lovingly detailed period sets. Most importantly, it has Cary Fukunaga, who directed the first season of HBO’s True Detective.
At this point the crew of the Discovery has now spent more time in the Mirror Universe than any past/future Star Trek crew. Deep Space Nine still has more Mirror-related episodes, but none of the characters who crossed over on that show had quite as long a stay. It’s one the the benefits of having a serialized Star Trek show. It doesn’t have to wrap things up in an episode or two. It can really explore this other universe and how our mostly peaceful crew acts within it.
A new season of Cosmos is on the way, instilling in us once more a sense of wonder and curiosity about the scientific world. Neil deGrasse Tyson is returning to host the follow-up to Carl Sagan’s 1980 series. Ann Druyan, Sagan’s widow whose been behind the series since it began nearly 40 years ago, is also returning as Executive Producer. After announcing the new season, Druyan took some time to talk to press about her goals for it, and what Sagan would think of the world today.
Because a song that goes, “Look down, look down you’ll always be a slave/Look down, Look down you’re standing in your grave” might not be the best look for a dangerous sporting event where lots of money is made off of unpaid labor.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
