He is humiliating creationist and climate change deniers. They are responding by using smears. Its far from a fail.

Yea that's a possibility. There's also been rumblings around the net that the show itself is 'cringy' in its message.

I've only seen small clips so I'll hold final judgment when I do see the whole show.

I watched the first episode and so far it seems less about him doing science and more like him hosting a talk show full of people you've never heard of or don't care about. He's only on screen for a few minutes in between that screen coming down and someone else running a segment. Is the whole thing like that?
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

Yes, I think each episode tackles a different topic where he faces off against people who hold strong beliefs that fly in the face of science such as Climate Change Deniers, Anti-Vaxers, Anti-GMO folks, "alternative" remedies, anti-evolution.

There is not much in the way Science experiments like the kids show but it uses a variety of skits and interviews to teach people about important issues facing our society today and debunks a lot of myths around them as well. Its pretty interesting IMO except I cant stand the laugh track.

I watched the first ep and it was cringe-worthy. I get why he's acting the way he is in hopes to inspire younger minds and reach their demographic but it was too much to bear. The audience over cheering/laughing at his antics also didn't help.
