It seems sometime in 2013 Carl Sagan's Cosmos will be rebooted/relaunched on Fox. It will be hosted by Neil DeGrasse Tyson and produced by Seth McFarlane.

That's retarded. It should be hosted by McFarlane.

I see no problem with Neil DeGrasse Tyson hosting it.  After all he is an astrophysicist and has had appearances on TV before (Nova ScienceNOW (according to the article),  History Channel's The Universe, The Big Bang Theory, and Stargate: Atlantis (it was a crappy episode, but whatever).  Makes more sense to have him host it than a cartoon producer (as funny as those cartoons may be).  Though I suppose the show would be more popular if McFarlane hosted it. 

Though it doesn't really matter who hosts it, it's on Fox so it will last three episodes before getting canceled.  :P

Tyson doesn't have the silky smooth voice of a Sagan or McFarlane.
